They're actually notorious for being really cheap with their stations.
Yet people like Huel and Monica are well taken care of.

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

WFXT dropped the Fox branding an[d] it’s still a Fox affiliate. It was the best decision that station has made. “Boston 25” identifies with Boston viewers. Not yet. Its ratings are spiraling. WFXT's 10 pm newscast is running second to WHDH and in fourth place at 6pm and 11pm. Its also losing talent...

WJBK graphics package

It wasn’t discussed here before, but WJBK upgraded its graphics and music last year. It’s the same as the other Fox O&Os. I like the upgrade. At least Fox spends money on its stations.

WXYZ graphics question

I read a rumor that EW Scripps plan on upgrading its graphics package for all its stations this year. Is this true?

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

I don't see any issues with older news sets and logos, as long as it isn't some sort of complete bland-looking set from the 60s (there are some that are darn close to that). It’s bad when a station hasn’t upgraded its news set since 2007. Other Fox stations and affiliates have. WJW is in the Clevel...

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

How's it go? If it ain't broke don't "fix it'". WJW doesn't need an image change if it's the market leader. IIRC WJW still a FOX affiliate. As for being a 24 hour news source.... no one has money for that these days. There's brokered/paid programming on all of the CLE affiliates including WJW with ...

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

WJW is a ratings winner because WEWS is not good and WKYC is not consistent at times. WOIO has been a hit if miss since 2003. WJW imo, needs an image change. It doesn’t have to use the Fox branding anymore and they need to upgrade their graphics and news set. It can call itself “Cleveland’s televisi...

Where is WJBK ranked, among Fox owned stations?
Based on what measure? I don't understand your question.
Ratings/viewers

What’s happened to WJW-TV??

During the glory days as a CBS affiliate, I remember Channel 8 being a powerhouse in the Cleveland/Akron market. The station was innovative, it was creative, it had great local content, it had great newscasts. Even in its early days as a Fox affiliate and later as a Fox O&O, the station was still pr...

New WOIO logo

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/WOIO

Yet another new logo was introduced today.

The station once again, is called CBS 19.

This station seems to change images, every few years. My goodness!!!

WJBK/Fox question

Where is WJBK ranked, among Fox owned stations? Is it in the top five? I don’t think it’s rated above KTTV, WTTG, or WNYW (flagship station). I definitely put it above WFLD. I’ve seen Fox 32 in Chicago and I’m not impressed at all. Fox 2 is better, IMO.

I think WJBK is top notched.

Re: Comcast and NBC in Detroit

I'm sorry your premice doesn't make sense. Fox is shrinking its presense in Detroit. It sold Fox Sports Detroit to Disney who is in the process of divesting FSD and its sister RSNs I don’t think Graham is doing well financially. Where do you get this from??? Graham Holdings NYSE stock went way up s...

Re: Detroit TV, 1975 and 1984

Great to see some of those tv listings............I loved that era of local tv. WXON20 took over in the 70's as the place for kids tv from WKBD50 which was the king the 60's .I remember watching the marvel superheroes/Batman/Ultraman/Green Hornet on WXON. Speaking of WJBK around 1968 they used to s...

Mike Valenti news!

According to WXYT, sports host Mike Valenti was let go by the station. Unprofessional behavior behind the scenes was said to be the cause of his firing.

No word on his replacement......


































































Happy April Fools Day!!! Lol!!!
