I remember JoAnne Purtan reading and laughing at mean tweets and viewer hate e-mail about her, to us in the newsroom.

Re: Ingredients for a morning news show

Perhaps you should challenge JJ for morning supremacy by getting a job at 4 or 7 as the morning EP.

There is no mystery here, the new boss didn't want Elrick working for a competing local media platform.

Re: Which Metro Detroit cities are declining and which are improving?

Fun fact about Berkley, it has the highest number of TV employees per capita of any city in Metro Detroit. A very large number of employees from 2,4 and 7 as well as televised sports PxP technicians are Bears.

Re: Which Metro Detroit cities are declining and which are improving?

What are you basing these judgements on? I'm going to add Hazel Park to the improving list and Roseville to the declining list. I actually think Taylor is improving.

It seems like a good time to look at the Judgemental Map of Metro Detroit and see how the area has evolved in 5 years.

I don't feel comfortable revealing her personal medical info here.

Amy was very sick and in quite a lot of pain, hopefully she will fully recover very soon. I think she should have taken another week off.

Re: Why Would Local Media Sit On A Story?

It is unethical for news agencies to report suicides and identify victims of sexual assault. Therefore if it is believed to be a suicide then no newsroom will waste resources on it, especially on a weekend with skeleton crews.

Why is Local 4 ignoring the political shit show going on in Oakland Co?

And it's almost the one year anniversary of Brooks stating that he would rather join the Klan then a regional chamber of commerce to promote Detroit as a place to do business.

Re: Tara Edwards

In truth Fieger was so successful as Kevorkian's attorney that David Gorcyca ran for Oakland Co prosecutor on the platform that he would not waste any more money prosecuting Jack Kevorkian. Kevorkian didn't like being out of the news so he dumped Fieger and video taped himself assisting a suicide an...

Re: Only a matter of time for Fox

Don't know what Fox's commitment to airing premier weekday games in mid-season or the reach of FOX Sports 1 if they did. ESPN/ABC is a better fit for national exposure.

Re: Jennifer Ann Wilson's downtown Plum Market puff piece on WXYZ

Is the Mexican Cantina to which you refer the quick service place at the southwest corner of Fort and Griswold? I think it's called Carnival, and it's located at the NE tip of the Penobscot. That place is a bit of a zoo at lunch, but the food is decent most of the time. Like Lunchtime Global, I hav...

Re: Jennifer Ann Wilson's downtown Plum Market puff piece on WXYZ

I wonder what's available in the Guardian Building?
There is or was a few months ago a taco stand. It was below average and the Mexican Cantina across the street is better, yet much busier. Might also be a coffee shop in there as well.
