Re: Detroit/Toledo Big Three schedule for 12/10/1980

NBC was a crappy network in the early 1980s. It was equivalent to the CW. It’s understandable that WDIV preempted 1-2 hours of NBC programming a day. WDIV was a station trying to rebuild itself, after years of mediocrity. Once NBC made its comeback in the 1984-85 season, WDIV cleared more NBC shows....

Re: Mike Duggan files for divorce

No surprise here. The local stations, which are all Sparty biased, refused to uncover the immoral activities of Tom Izzo and Mark Dantonio, in the MSU sex scandal. They wouldn’t even cover what the former MSU basketball players said, at the trial. This is why Detroit TV is a joke. “Fox 2 News, Worki...

Which is why the REAL Detroit (the neighbourhoods) will NEVER prosper under crony capitalism .The Ilitches (termed "crooks" by the late Jim Northrup on the Ron Cameron Show a couple of years before his June 8 ,2011 death;it was the same show on which Northrup said that he'd shoot Jim Price in the h...

Jason Carr and Fox 2

What happened between those two? Why did Jason Carr leave Fox 2 for WDIV? Was it over money? Fox 2’s morning show hasn’t been the same since he left.

Re: WJBK graphics package

They're actually notorious for being really cheap with their stations. Yet people like Huel and Monica are well taken care of. That’s about all they spend money on... Huel and Monica run the prompters with their feet... You can’t starve the hand that feeds you lol. Besides, the station just upgrade...

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

WFXT dropped the Fox branding an[d] it’s still a Fox affiliate. It was the best decision that station has made. “Boston 25” identifies with Boston viewers. Not yet. Its ratings are spiraling. WFXT's 10 pm newscast is running second to WHDH and in fourth place at 6pm and 11pm. Its also losing talent...

WJBK graphics package

It wasn’t discussed here before, but WJBK upgraded its graphics and music last year. It’s the same as the other Fox O&Os. I like the upgrade. At least Fox spends money on its stations.

WXYZ graphics question

I read a rumor that EW Scripps plan on upgrading its graphics package for all its stations this year. Is this true?

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

I don't see any issues with older news sets and logos, as long as it isn't some sort of complete bland-looking set from the 60s (there are some that are darn close to that). It’s bad when a station hasn’t upgraded its news set since 2007. Other Fox stations and affiliates have. WJW is in the Clevel...

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

How's it go? If it ain't broke don't "fix it'". WJW doesn't need an image change if it's the market leader. IIRC WJW still a FOX affiliate. As for being a 24 hour news source.... no one has money for that these days. There's brokered/paid programming on all of the CLE affiliates including WJW with ...

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

WJW is a ratings winner because WEWS is not good and WKYC is not consistent at times. WOIO has been a hit if miss since 2003. WJW imo, needs an image change. It doesn’t have to use the Fox branding anymore and they need to upgrade their graphics and news set. It can call itself “Cleveland’s televisi...

Where is WJBK ranked, among Fox owned stations?
Based on what measure? I don't understand your question.
