Re: Derek Falter is out as Market Manager at Cumulus GR; successor named

I sales manager from Dallas to be a GM. Could have just as well grabbed a Walmart greeter from Grand Rapids.

Re: New WWJ/WKBD Boss

Jennifer is an excellent choice. She was the driving force behind WGN Morning News and made a dominant force in Chicago. If the blue suits at CBS let her do her magic, she can fix 62.

Re: Local 4 buyout packages

The bill for the new set must have been higher than estimated.

Re: 9&10 is such a mess right now

9&10 would be better off with Gray or Nexstar. Sinclair owns 7 and 4. Very Right wing Trump crap.

Re: ThisTV now coming to Ch 12.7

ABC 12 news is an embarrassment. Byron has no shame or sense of pride in his product. It's all squeeze out as much ad money from Flint as possible.

Re: Audacy officially files for Chapter 11 reorganization

Just bad Trump like management. Buying stations you can't afford to run. Then avoiding your responsibilities by declaring bankruptcy.

Re: Trouble at CBS News Detroit

Frank was not a disaster at WNEM. Management wanted him back at the main anchor desk. Frank wanted to stay solo because of Covid. Management let him go.

I'm surprised more hospice care facilities and funeral homes don't advertise on WJR. It's their demo.

Re: WJRT Changes

Through the years, I have seen a number of anchors and reporters who never improve. Do stations ever coach and work with them to get better? Kent should be getting better. Dawn Jones needs to be more enthusiastic. She comes across bored and tired. Now, she shows lots of life doing the Crim with Terr...

Re: WJRT Changes

ABC 12 Weekend News is a joke. Last night on the 6 O'clock there was one local story. It's all the national news you see again on World News with former 12 staffer Lindsay Davis. Kent needs experience. Kevin looks tired. Byron has zero pride in product. He is just like Sinclair. Their 6 pm. Week day...

Re: Reporter/Anchor Charlie Tinker has left WZZM

Not a lot of details. I would guess contract was not renewed? Nice to see Alana and Juliet have better chairs. Must have strained the Tenga budget. Now, is they could save up and get a real news set and put the kitchen table in the break room

Re: Byron Allen wants to buy ABC O&Os

Hopefully, Nexstar will buy ABC. Byron has no interest in quality. Just suck the money out.

ABC 12 has the most amateurish week end newscasts. Mostly National stories we will see on World News Tonight in about 15 minutes. High school announcements quality.
