Jim Peyton's sketches were always a nice addition to the weather. And his appearances as Mr Hot Dog...awesome!

Re: MidMichigan NOW at 5pm on NBC25

The newscast was only created so they can air more commercials during an election year.

Re: Union organizing

If they were to unionize in Flint, do they go with a union that can offer local support, such as the Teamsters or UAW, or someone who knows broadcasting, such as SAG-AFTRA?

Re: By the numbers

ABC 12 has the most amount of newscasts, so they need the larger staff.
As far as I know, TV25/66 doesn't air a noon, nor weekend morning news.
66 doesn't have a 4,5 or 6 PM news on weekdays.

Re: Local News Stations in Dayton To Cover Mass Shooting

If I am a reporter in Dayton I have way more local contacts than an outside reporter from Detroit, contacts I have cultivated over years that I am not sharing with outsiders. Reporters in Dayton will cover this event better than anyone outside the area.

Erik Smith was at WXYZ for nearly 50 years. Stan Chambers was at KTLA for at least 60.

Did Erik work behind the scenes on the technical side of things at WXYZ for a few years before becoming a reporter?

Anchors sellling instead of reporting

I watched part of the TV 29 & 8 newscast ten days ago, the news anchor read the "Two minute drill" sports and went right into mentioning each and every business on their website. They took the station website full screen and someone highlighted each business while the anchor was talking about their ...

Re: Regional Emmys

I believe there are 63 Emmy categories in Michigan, and we'll say 5 entries in each category at $150 an entry. That's over $45,000. What do 63 trophies with engraving cost? $6300?

Has anyone else noticed the annoying clicking sound happening during the morning news?
Is it a constant clicking, or just when mics are on in the studio and not during live shots?
