Re: Local news returning to CBS 62?

CBS 62 and WKBD are ending up to being nothing but a transmitter and sales dept. as their master control is about to be taken over by an Atlanta hub, many jobs are going out the door. As long as CBS is making big profits in their present state, you will see no NEWS on either station.

Re: Channel Seven's Lead Story

This was tonight's lead story on Channel 7's 11:00 PM News. A worker at a Subway restaurant had her bare feet on the counter during working hours. While that is gross and worthy of media attention, it not exactly 11 O'Clock lead material. Exactly why I haven't watched local NEWS for years. My wife ...

Re: November 8 - December 5 PPM Radio Ratings

I disagree. The next book is the so-called Holiday book, which includes three and a half weeks in December.
Okay MW, I should have said after the Holiday book is over my bad.

Re: November 8 - December 5 PPM Radio Ratings

You will see WOMC's numbers up in the next book because of the shift to WNIC during the holiday season.

Re: Yule Log vs. News

We need a break from the NEWS, we see it 364 days a year. The Yule log is played here in Tampa also, I think it's a great idea. I agree with DAC, give the NEWS room some time off, as us Christians celebrate the birth of Christ on Christmas.

Re: WMXD interference

WMXD is 45 KW with a directional antenna at 479 feet, they pull in from Brighton slightly. WDTW is 61 KW with a non direct...

Country, I just can't get into the twang and yodeling. Actually I hate Country Music.
