He will land on his feet. He's a smart guy and a hard worker. There may have been things happening behind-the-scenes that people don't know about.

Re: Why isn't WDIV airing Jimmy Fallon?

I wonder if all NBC stations air The Tonight Show at midnight or if it is fed at 11:35 and WDIV does a tape delay?

Re: Former WEYIer anchoring CBS Evening News

The CBS weekend news for this weekend is originating from the Indianapolis CBS affiliate. Each weekend it is broadcast from a different CBS affiliate.

Re: Former WEYIer anchoring CBS Evening News

The weekend newscasts for CBS are not always from the Washington DC affiliate. They rotate among different CBS affiliates. This weekend it was from Seattle. I have also seen it originate from Dallas, Denver and other major markets. I think it's a nice idea and it also gives local anchors some nation...

Re: Listeners are abandoning local radio in droves in the Lansing market

The 1990s were a great period for country, with stars like Travis Tritt, Alan Jackson, Sammy Kershaw, Joe Diffie, Garth Brooks, etc. Today's country sounds awful in comparison. Current country is just pop music with a fiddle or a steel guitar added, then it is branded as country. Unlike when it firs...

Re: Listeners are abandoning local radio in droves in the Lansing market

You mentioned WVFN. They are one of the rare stations in this day and age that understands how to do LOCAL radio. They have many hours of sports talk radio with local hosts that people know (Tim Staudt, Mad Dog Demarco and Will Tieman). They take phone calls from listeners (what a concept). They cov...

Re: What is your favorite subchannel network?

Antenna TV is my favorite since they have the best shows, such as Johnny Carson, Family Ties, Growing Pains, Barney Miller, Welcome Back Kotter, etc.

Re: SNL and The Donald

SNL has always made fun of the president and they always will. Trump is guaranteed to say and do lots of stupid things, so the late night shows will have a field day with him. They made fun of Obama some, but not that much since he didn't do that much that was stupid. Obama was confident, but not an...

Re: The "personality" of radio stations

Often there is no one in studio, but if there is, it seems like the PD would want the station to sound like a radio station, with personality, not someone's i-pod.

The "personality" of radio stations

I don't listen to over-the-air radio much, but I have noticed these days that the stations do not have much of a personality. They will play several songs back-to-back without the jock saying anything. And when they do say something, it is something very generic. How about they say something about w...
