Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

Well this one is going to be interesting. I cited the Nexstar - Mission relationship in Little Rock with Nexstar's NBC affiliate and "Mission's" Fox affiliate and their respective duopolies with the market's MyTV and CW affiliates. As I get into reading about the proposed merger I'm seeing that Shar...

Re: Alex Jones Labeled as “Fiction?” One Group’s Effort

This isn't about Alex Jones. It is about Freedom of Speech. He's already been taken off of the major digital platforms. But that isn't enough. Some people won't stop until he is utterly destroyed. Kinda pathetic, actually. Also I've made it clear that I think he's a nutjob - but a nutjob with a rig...

Re: WTOL NFL game choices

(Disclaimer: I have no dog in this fight, I'm a Packers fan. Although Steelers fans annoy the hell out of me) Last week, the Browns and Lions played separate games that both aired on CBS at 1:00. Although the Browns are having one of the worst seasons in NFL history and the Lions are driving for th...

Re: Another new face at channel 7 weather

I saw him this weekend too. I thought he was a good solid young talent.

It looks like he's an in-house hire coming from the Scripps station in Baltimore, WMAR and was at WCIA in Champaign, Illinois before that. He's also a WBKB Alpena alum and a former WXYZ intern.

Re: Jessica Starr RIP

Its a horrible shock anytime you hear of a suicide of someone you know of. When its someone you know personally it physically feels like a punch in the stomach. My deepest sympathy and prayers to her family, friends and colleagues. She was becoming a fixture on Detroit morning TV and I thought in th...

Re: CFP Rankings and Bowl games

One would think somebody would design a way for Ohio State and Michigan (or other rivals) to duel it out in a rematch round in a bowl game... just sayin... Yes, its pretty simple. Dump these stupid East and West divisions, go down to only one or two out-of-confrence games on the schedule and have t...

Re: Best Detroit stations of all time

The Big 8  CKLW in the 70's. Hands down. Best rotation anywhere. And they literally made or almost every popular jock and newscaster in the market there for the next 30 years except for JP. (I was kind of interested in CKLW in the early 90's when they left the big band music and were transitioning t...

CFP Rankings and Bowl games

So, the Harbaugh "disastrophe" of 2018 that took place this past Saturday has been good not only for Ohio State but, for Georgia and Oklahoma. The CFP ranking for this week is out and here is where everybody stands. 1. Alabama (12-0) 2. Clemson (12-0) 3. Notre Dame (12-0) 4. Georgia (11-1) ---------...
