Re: What happened to Maz on the DMP?

Maz brought absolutely NOTHING to the table. Was on the phone half the time. Brought up pointless topics and anecdotes that had no relevance. He's more suited to a sports podcast. He would do fine there. But a "current events" podcast like DMP? He was out of place and it was obvious. Yes. He rarely...

Re: NOheart cuts have begun

Why does everyone care when radio hosts lose their jobs, but no one cares about other careers? With retail careers, they just laugh and say, "I use Amazon. LOL! If they wanted a stable career, they should've gone to college! Losers!" "IT people? They should've known that Indians would take their job...

Re: Jason Carr - WDIV

No matter what you make think of Jason Carr, a few ladies I know say he is "easy on the eyes" and can't understand why Fox2 let him go. They cut anyone whose contract was coming up at the time. Didn't matter seniority or pay. Lee Thomas' layoff received the most backlash, so channel 2 brought him b...

Has anyone noticed WLLZ is not broadcasting in HD, been 4 or 5 days now, kinda sounds better.
HD radios are obsolete. BestBuy has sold the same portable HD radio for years, with a big speaker that you can't carry in your pocket. C. Crane, the king of specialty radios, doesn't carry any.

Re: Little investigating by on air investigative reporters

Not sure I follow your point... I think he likes Jennifer Ann Wilson (weekend reporter) on Channel 7, and she was the one doing all of the investigative reporting early on, then they gave the story to Kim Russell in the evening. Jennifer Ann was getting a lot of interaction on Twitter with the stor...

Re: FOX2 Mornings hit with the Lue Flu

Come on. It's the holidays. Whether you feel they should be on, like they work retail, they deserve vacations also. I bet Deena takes off the entire week of July 4th or more during the summer or spring. A lot of people don't pay attention to TV or radio news during the 2 week holiday, because they a...

Re: WJR shits the bed again...this time with a 2.2 share!

Smartphones only have FM radio tuners, if they even have that. I think the Samsung Galaxy might be one of the few that do. AM radio sucks in the home nowadays with all of the interference, from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and the Lions suck on WJR, so no one listens.

I lived in Sterling Heights and especially Warren for many years, and other than the 2003 blackout, I cannot recall a single instance of WPHS being off the air for a prolonged period or having any sort of processing, modulation or signal issues. I can, sometime in the 2000s. Don't ask me when, I ju...

Does VHF 3 increase HD quality on the subchannels? Looks like they are 480p.

Re: Worst tv personalities that can go away

Can Smilovitz go? He does two minutes of sports news, and 1 minute of a video that was trending a month ago. He probably makes $500,000 a year. Let some younger person make a quarter of that. He's made millions and millions in Detroit.

Re: HD 2 and 3 stations

Hello, it seems that places like Best Buy or Walmart only sell one HD radio. How is this still a thing? I borrowed by dad's portable and it seemed like some sub-stations weren't even working anymore.

I really do wish this station would leave the air; all it does is obstruct good reception of Mix 96.7 from Essex County, ON.
Can we cancel radio stations, like people cancel careers on social media? #CancelCulture

For other than test purposes why broadcast it if no one has a reciever until Christmas 2020 at which time they will be available .
To be cool and waste electricity.
