It’ll be an in-over-their-head first timer who will tow the company line. Likely a former assistant sales manager from Walgreens.
That's "toe" the line, unless this is reference to a Sinclair water-ski team or other such abstract line of thought.

Re: ABC12 Great Lakes, Bay Region, News Room

I never saw what the damn problem was with "Tri-Cities." Are there any organizations more useless than regional chambers of commerce? There's no problem with "Tri-Cities", other than it not being unique enough for some people. Plenty of "Tri-Cities" areas in the US. "Great Lakes - Bay Region" isn't...

Re: WJML

I'd heard a jock or jingle using that phrase at some point. I know it wouldn't have stuck in my head from anywhere else, since I don't have any memories of Chicago radio other than WLS, or hearing Dick Biondi back in town on FM in the 80's. Perhaps whomever used it was borrowing it from CFL. Nonethe...

Re: The media wants you to panic

These local TV stations built their schedules around local news, since it draws viewers and allows for ad space. With the current situation, most other things besides the situation are postponed, cancelled, closed, or otherwise altered. Without normal daily life (and Art Van commercials), there's li...

Re: Coronavirus Playlist

"Sick As A Dog" - Aerosmith
"Night Fever" - Bee Gees
"Isolation" - John Lennon

(and I don't know if the lyrics fit the situation well, but there might be a connection: "Symphony Of Destruction" by Megadeth.
In any event, the song swings!)

Re: The media wants you to panic

The WDIV / Click On Detroit app has 6 stories this afternoon not related to the Coronavirus, including 2 shootings, a charge of racism, a b&e, drunk driving and a hit & run. There's some of your balance returning to the news. Good to see people are getting back to their business. Have you arranged f...

Re: Coronavirus is in Michigan

💯 Banning crowds of more than 100 is 100% unconstitutional. I don’t give up my rights because of an emergency. You don’t see slavery being legalized because of an emergency. You're obviously free and within your rights to get 100 friends, enemies or total strangers and gather unlawfully. Be sure to...

Re: Beautiful Music Stations in Detroit

Former WGMZ Beautiful Music station (107.9 FM) switches to "CARS 108" WCRZ in Flint, MI back on June 15, 1984. Here is what happened (audio only): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEm-xKZze8k I'm not sure which is less common: switching formats at around 1:00 am (based upon the current temp and weat...

Re: Warren Pierce

I got in on one those evening conversations, discussing the Today Show's 25th anniversary with Warren in early 1977.

If my cassette of it hasn't disintegrated by now, I still have it recorded somewhere. It wasn't anything in depth, but I enjoyed having Warren taking my call.

Re: WILZ Tim Brandow mistake??

I’ll guess Tim knows Aerosmith’s “Lightning Strikes” (as do I - I’ve got the album on vinyl from back in the day), but I’m guessing that WILZ doesn’t have it, or Corporate America won’t let them play it.

Re: B100 in South Bend fucks up BIG TIME

“To be realistic, radio is largely operated by fools these days. Most oil change places are run better.” True. The last oil change place I went to couldn’t figure out how to run a fleet credit card, but usually they get most things right. Radio? Sales-driven, programming-illiterates that mismanage m...

Re: ABC 12 at Noon

That’s over 6 hours now every weekday spent on news, if I’m adding it up correctly. Obviously they can sell ad time on news broadcasts, and they don’t have to pay more people to just keep reading what they’ve read a few times before. Less airtime to fill with syndicated programming that has to be pa...

Re: Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethons

The Buzzboard, in some ways, is a little like the old Jerry Lewis Labor Day MDA Telethon: people tune in just to see where the event (discussion) has gone off the rails, and to see what might happen (be posted) next. I’m usually amused by how far away from the original topic the conversation gets. I...

Re: Lee Van Ameyde Dies at 66

It’s a tribute to both Lee and the civility and respect he represented and inspired.

Here’s to more of that wherever it can be found.
