Re: ABC12 & Imlay City Accident

Wow!  Yeah, that was rough. To be fair his actual live shot on News 12 at 6pm was better. Not great but, much closer to reality. Its clear he hasn't had much on-air experience if any before this, at least based on his resume on the station website. But you can get better with practice. I'm pretty su...

Re: WDIV delaying today's Tonight Show Episode.

In case you didn't hear, Fallon is going to be doing Tonight Show episodes right after football games on Sundays now. WDIV will be tape-delaying today's episode because news is on immediately after the game. WDIV didn't delay anything. NBC has scheduled the Sunday night Tonight Show s to air after ...

Re: Pretty sure WDIV's NBC feed just went dark. Can someone verify?

I highly doubt it was on the network's end. That's pretty rare. And given the fact that channel 4's MCR is really sloppy I'll bet its on WDIV's end. They are horrible with the Today show cut-ins. At another time just last week I saw four peacocks cycle before the local spot came on. Does anyone know...

Re: For some reason, WDIV airing NBC previews at 2:34 am.

Actually the network did place them there.
If you look up NBC's own schedule from last night you'll seem them listed on their eastern feed following Late Night with Seth Meyers

Re: Mass US Shootings Finally Addressed ?

Being as a 17-year-old cannot legally own a handgun in the State of Texas, it is reasonable to believe that he didn't purchase it at a gun dealer and pass a background check. I've been to numerous gun shows, a 17-year-old couldn't buy a handgun at one of those either. However he obtained the weapon...

According to the website,
Is that the Tamron Hall Show website, the WXYZ.com website or some omnipotent website?

I though that show was airing on TV20 in this market.

Re: 737 Max Jets. Take a seat?

Fly by wire...bad idea. The 737 Max is not fly-by-wire. Rudder and stick control is connected by cables to the flight control surfaces. The spoilers are electrically controlled though. I seem to remember a pilot making a successful water landing in the Hudson River in a fly-by-wire airliner with no...
