Re: Best sounding radio station of all time

Then Ed and Motorola Engineer Greg Buchwald did their magic with WJR-AM with Detroit Tiger games that sounded like you were in Tiger Stadium I also remember listening to U of M football games on WJR and it also sounded like you were in the Big House. The placing of mics was perfect with the CQUAM s...

Re: Best sounding radio station of all time

I have to go with these 60's and 70's era stations, not necessarily in order, because they all had their own personalities, and unique sound.
WABC New York

WLS Chicago

WCFL Chicago

CKLW Windsor/Detroit

WKNR Detroit

WKNX Saginaw/Flint/Bay City/MIdland

WTAC Flint/Saginaw

Re: Channel 7 looks very flat footed with its news coverage this early evening

Just another example of why I haven't watched local news in many years. By the posts I've seen on this platform it appears to be getting worse.

Fox Sports Detroit has been off my Dish since last July. Sinclair better come to their senses, their greed could come back to bite them in the ass.

Re: TV FM Antenna Nostalgia

I can't remember the model number but it is the 100 mile range antenna. I see that the ones for sale currently are model # CM 3020.

Re: TV FM Antenna Nostalgia

I have a Channel Master fringe antenna with a rotor that I've had up at 43 feet for 28 years years with a signal amp on it and it works great for off air HD. Toledo looks like local TV from Livonia. I can also pick up Lansing in HD.

Re: LGBTQ+ News Personalities

Yes, she did the weather first, then Jill Washburn later on. By the way it's Bhirdo not Bihrdo. He has a different type of last name so I can see how that can get messed up. I still see Jill on Channel 2 and Syma on Channel 7, I think Bhirdo retired.

Re: Under representation in TV news

I don't know if I could prove it in court, but I would call it over 50 disease, and it's not only happening in the broadcast business. I know seasoned pros in other businesses that have been replaced with younger less expensive candidates. The days of an authoritative anchors like Bill Bonds, Mort C...

Re: Cuts at Beasley Detroit

Anne Carlini has the best female voice in Detroit radio, hands down in my book. My prediction is she will be on the air soon somewhere else, she is too much of an on air talent to not get picked up.
