Re: WDIV in Ireland

It was carried in the strangest of places, so it wouldn't surprise me. According to the 1994 TV Factbook (posted on americanradiohistory.com), WDIV may have been carried in the following communities outside of Michigan (these communities are all in counties where WDIV had a 5% or higher net weekly ...

WDIV in Ireland

It was brought up on a Discord server today that at one point WDIV was carried in, of all places, Ireland. However, very little is currently known about this. There aren't even any mentions on if it was carried on NTL or Cablevision, which were two of the major cable companies in Ireland back around...

For some reason, the Oakland Press and Macomb Daily associated themselves with that abortion. Not sure why.
I also remember the Downriver News-Herald being part of that association.

Re: Three CBS-Owned CW Stations Add Nightly News

The newscasts will be produced at another CBS-owned station, which will add national news, sports and weather, then sent back to the station where it will air. In Detroit's case, it will be produced at another CBS-owned station that has a full news department. WKBD Detroit will debut 10 p.m. news J...

Re: WADL is removing Cozi Jan 1

WDIV 4.4 is now on the air and is airing regular Cozi programming (right now The Munsters). Three days earlier than predicted!

Re: WADL is removing Cozi Jan 1

RabbitEars has updated the WADL listing to show that QVC has replaced Cozi there. WDIV's listings still haven't been updated.

Tonight's Blacklist is new. Does anyone know if Channel 4 is going to move it to another time or just not show it? If I was still watching that show I'd
be ticked, (but I stopped watching The Blacklist a few years ago so whatever.)
I can confirm that it isn't on either of their subchannels.

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

Friday night, WDIV will be airing a Live In The D special and an infomercial in place of a new episode of The Blacklist, which won't be moved or delayed at all.

Curiosity though, at least I've seen it on 38.3, what is "TEST-DT 99" after every show?
This "TEST-DT 99" screen also pops up from time to time on WDWO 18.1 here in the Detroit DMA.

Re: WZPX (ION) files app to move closer to Grand Rapids

Reception of WOTV will not guarantee reception of WZPX even once it's broadcasting at full power. Bear in mind WZPX will be broadcasting with a highly directional signal that will favor areas to the north of Gun Lake (GR, Ionia, Holland) and disfavor areas to the south (Kalamazoo, BC) . Those areas...
