Re: How to fix the Fox 2 morning show

Off the wall suggestion, a full time AM IT person to deal with all of the technical issues that come with most everybody working remotely from home.

Re: How to fix the Fox 2 morning show

I was an editor and TD, now I'm a cameraman, rolling with technology changes. Almost everybody who is in front of the camera and most of the management is under contract at all 3 stations. The only exceptions are a few per diem reporters and Fox 2 has 2 or 3, I believe.

Re: How to fix the Fox 2 morning show

Is it time to play "Fantasy News Director" again? Do we get an unlimited budget and are allowed to void contracts? What are the rules, this game sounds as fun as Fantasy Football?

Re: Sherry Margolis to retire from Fox 2

I wonder who Fox 2 could hire as A New anchor? Feels like a Ben Bailey / Chuck Gadica thing could be in the works, no facts to back this theory up, just speculation.

Re: Sherry Margolis to retire from Fox 2

WJBK keeps giving us fewer & fewer reasons to watch its newscasts.
It's not Fox 2's fault that they employed her until she retired at retirement age, in fact it's a mark in their favor. I doubt I'll work until I'm 65.

Re: Fake news WXYZ

The Detroit-Lincoln Park border is Outer drive. Depending wear you stand on that block you could be in Detroit or Lincoln Park according to a GPS. If you think this Nitpick is worth a thread your life must be pretty good.

Re: Gretchen the Media Queen

Editorcj...so you work for Channel 7 now, and not Fox 2 anymore? I've worked for channel 7 for 24 years, before that the Pistons. Most everybody who knows me, including station management, knows I post as editorcj here and other forums and I know most of the people that work at Fox 2, one quite well.

Re: Detroit Protests coverage

The good news is the 7 team appears to be in the pretty good shape, the two women, Clifford and Russel, can walk and talk and the new guy Rudy is doing okay petty much.
Don't forget the photographers who are doing this while walking backwards, a real calf killer.

Jenn was quite surprised that Breitbart stole/shared her video that I shot. The backwards mini-marathons with 30lb weight on the shoulder can be quite the workout.

I remember Amy, she was rumored to be quite unethical while at Fox 2 and scandal seems to follow her around.

Re: Transitioning to new graphics for WXYZ

New Graphics appear tomorrow at noon, Wed May 13th. Very simple, the look will be across all Scripps stations. Holding my opinion to myself, playing with them now so that I can use them and be somewhat productive tomorrow.

Re: Gretchen the Media Queen

Before the crisis I called Gretchen the Democratic Sarah Palin. As for policy she is pretty much following Mike Dewine of Ohio and J. B. Pritzker of Illinois lead in the shutdown orders by a few days. She is doing a good job of giving Trump the business and that makes his disciples very angry and th...
