Re: Breaking: Meredith to possibly exit the TV business

Meredith turned down to buy Heartland and I have heard they want to be a mega TV station just want to buy top 50 TV stations. Meredith, they aren't sellers as the article is stating.

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

From FTLive that the Nexstar & Tribune merger could be approved any day now. I also read from Plaine-Dealer that Nexstar wants to keep WJW but Fox wants it back again so some TV stations could still be in limbo after the merger I say Nexstar should sell the TV stations that Fox wants if they want WJ...

Re: Nexstar in Flap With DIRECTV and AT&T-UVerse

AT&T also used other pay-TV companies by name with there PR spin Nexstar did the same with the Sinclair sidecars that went dark on AT&T & DirecTV. Yeah I didn't think that Nexstar needed to roll the scroll 24/7 on July 4TH was glad that is now only rolling a couple of times per hour but AT&T & Direc...

Re: Justin Amash

I think Justin Amash will be fine running as an independent for Congress I see those that like Justin and that have voted for him since 2010 will do so in 2020. If I lived in GR I wouldn't vote for Bill Ballenger way too far right for my liking I hope there will be more running in the GOP primary th...

Re: Broadcasting Hotties 2019

That's fine, but don't judge others as they do. That is their option, just like it's your option to not. And you still haven't told us who is hot to you. By the way, hot is not necessarily about looks. I can tell you what’s not hot: cops, ignorance, ineffective news anchors, and conflicts of intere...

Re: TV Weatherman calls out jive alerts, Sinclair fires him

It wasn't a smart idea to go on an extended rant on-air as he did. That was rather unprofessional of him. Also, I've never seen this "Code Red" verbiage used on WWMT - a fellow Sinclair-owned station. This supports the notion that individual stations do have some flexibility. My guess is the weathe...
