Detroit Protests coverage

WXYZ didn’t bother to cover it.

Local 4 waited until 11:30 to go to live coverage.

Fox 2, by far, did the best job. We even heard an F bomb from a Fox 2 reporter, on live TV

The glory days of Channel 7

The late 1970s: Back when WXYZ had serious journalism. This makes me wish the station would go back to being an ABC O&O. It was a much better run station then. Scripps has slowly ran WXYZ into the ground.

Re: WXYZ branding

I strongly dislike how "7 ABC" sounds. Completely unnatural. "Channel 7" and plain old "7" sounds just fine to me. Get rid of the miliquetoast anchors behind the desk (reassign them to other roles), devote a lot of resources to hard news & investigative reporting, hire Charlie Le Duff and Murray Fe...

Re: Transitioning to new graphics for WXYZ

Sister station WEWS just debuted theirs today. WRTV in Indianapolis is rumored to debute theirs very shortly. The more I see these graphics, the more I like it.

Re: If Nextar were to buy a station in Detroit....

I say they should buy both WWJ and WKBD. Not only would Nextar pay a lot of money into both stations, I guarantee you that Nextar world relaunch actual news departments on both stations. Unlike CBS, which is an absolute joke, I really feel Nextar would heavily invest in both stations. I wouldn’t mi...

When is WEWS getting the new graphics?

Channel 5’s sister stations WXYZ in Detroit and WCPO in Cincinnati both for them. So, when will WEWS? I hope it’s soon. The station’s current graphics, news set, and overall news presentation all look very amateurish, imo. Not to mention, their news set is in dire need of an upgrade. Hope things imp...

This my friends, is our Governor. What a joke!! She’s practically auditioning to be Biden’s running mate.

CW 50 News is a joke!!

Fox 2 and TV 20 both went straight to Governor Whitmer’s press conference tonight, about flooding in Midland, MI. It was breaking news. Yet WKBD, CW 50, didn’t. They were talking about the same damn boring stories, given by some reporter out of Dallas, Texas. Why couldn’t they go straight to her pre...

Re: WXYZ branding

I think is running out of ideas for "The Rebound...Detroit" stories. Today at 5PM, they featured a lengthy and somewhat boring report from WXMI's Derek Francis regarding Lake Michigan shoreline towns. The most interesting part of that report? Derek's stand up from the WXMI newsroom. The visual aest...

Re: WXYZ branding

Rate this,

They definitely need to upgrade the WXYZ news set.

Fox 2’s news set looks far superior. Fox O&O WJBK’s news set definitely looks like that of a top 15 Market.

Re: WXYZ branding

I think they need to do away with the Channel 7 branding. In my humble opinion, it’s old and outdated. Most of the ABC Channel 7s either go by ABC 7, or in case of the affiliate in Buffalo (another Scripps Station), 7 ABC. They can still keep the 7 Action News Branding and call it Channel 7 during ...
