WWJ 4 (now WDIV) from 1950 and 1977

https://youtu.be/HCcX7UERetg

Ch 4 was a mess in the late 1970s, just before it became WDIV (became WDIV in July, 1978). I can see why Post Newsweek rebuilt the station from scratch starting in 1979.

Re: WXYZ's Syma Chowdhry Leaving Detroit

Love Syma. She’s very talented. I hate to see her go but I understand her decision.

As for who to replace her?

Ali Hoxie is a good candidate. She’s young, talented, and doesn’t come across as stuck up like many other female journalists in the business. She seems really down to earth as well.

Classic WDIV/NBC from 1983

https://youtu.be/uio5cyZst3M https://youtu.be/Y7vgyBpMKlI https://youtu.be/g5dv6rLlVRA During the Go 4 It and Be There days!! This was a year before NBC went to number 1 in the ratings and before WDIV really came into its own. Miss when TV was his good! Miss the neon ‘4’. Also, love seeing a young C...

Re: New Graphics at WJBK, WXYZ

Good decision on their part! Let’s see how long them going rogue will last, as all Scripps stations are suppose to show the new graphics. Didn’t work out too well with WITI in their first stint as a Fox O&O. Update: apparently, Saturday was only a test run. The full graphics will be coming soon.

Re: New Graphics at WJBK, WXYZ

WXMI, Fox 17 in Grand Rapids got the new Scripps graphics last night.

WSYM in Lansing will probably get them very soon. Maybe this fall.

Scripps question (WXYZ related)

Is EW Scripps now the largest media outlet in the country, or does Nextar hold that title? I was asking, because I’ve noticed that Scripps has bought a bunch of television stations over the past few years. With that said, is WXYZ still one of Scripps biggest stations as far as it being a cash cow? O...

Re: Beginning to think Fox 2 has a liberal agenda

There are definitely reporters on there that are way left. The do keep it fairly in check though, but every now and then it comes though. I can't think of any of their on-air staff that I'd guess is conservative, except maybe Dan Miller or even Hammer. Today though, there was some idiot reporting f...

I think WJBK might be having technical difficulties

The 10 pm news is not even on, and they were showing health works (old episode, with the old graphics) and now, they are showing Let it Rip.

Hope whatever is going on, it’s all worked out.

Re: I think Fox 2 is showing their political bias yet again.

I think the question should be: Is Huel Perkins relevant? Every time he is in front of the camera, Fox2 is last in the ratings. And it's been that way since I joined this board. He's the least watched anchor in Metro Detroit. Before you get too excited over what he says, ask yourself: Who's watchin...

Re: I think Fox 2 is showing their political bias yet again.

I will talk about it because it’s a known fact and I have a right to a freedom of speech. The liberal bias is an issue that needs to be ratted out and exposed. This is not covered under freedom of speech... learn the constitution before you spout off about it. Just like a store can throw you out fo...
