Media doing social separation

This morning, Ch 7 had the anchors do the morning news from separate sides of the studio. Now, Fox 2 is doing the same thing. I get taking precautions due to coronavirus, but this is going too damn far. How about washing your damn hands and covering your mouth when coughing or sneezing. This is just...

Transitioning to new graphics for WXYZ

I’ve noticed WXYZ has been using the scripps graphics more and more in their news promotions. Even their promotions for first 7 alerts weather has the new graphics. Ch 7 is also beginning to use the ghost logo too, like other Scripps stations are. I think the new opening is right around the corner. ...

Re: Ann Marie LaFlamme out at Ch 7

Don't think she's worried about it right now. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200316/7f3ed7c02631aa4bdda2eaf44a9b899d.jpg Sent from my SM-T580 using Tapatalk Glory to the Lord Most High! He is truly Able! I’m so happy got her father. Sorry about her grandfather. He’s in a much better place.

Re: Ann Marie LaFlamme out at Ch 7

Rumor has it, former Ch 7 traffic reporter Rachel McCrary was ousted a few years ago, in favor of Ann Marie. If this is true, yikes! Talk about karma!!

Re: February 2020 TV News Ratings

I wonder if Fox 2 will consider moving TMZ and Extra. Those shows are getting slammed by Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Ch 7 seems to be weak in the 7pm time slot as well. Ch 7 is getting slammed by the likes of Judge Judy lol. Do you ever know what you're posting about?!?! Judge Judy is the highes...

Ann Marie LaFlamme out at Ch 7

According to her Facebook page, she’s out at WXYZ.

WTF is going on at Circle 7? I’m in shock!

Next Friday is her last day.

How would you fix WJBK and WXYZ?

Fox 2, while still a good station and a decent Fox owned station, seems to be a shell of itself. The news seems to be more fluff than hard hitting. Their morning news has been a disaster for a while. Ch 7 is definitely a shell of its former self. Bad on the air talent is a concern too. For Fox 2, I ...

Re: Fox Television Station family is now bigger

Just saw the ratings for WFLD. They are truly a disaster. Far worse than the other Chicago stations. WGN is totally dominating that market. Fox needs to totally revamp WFLD.

Re: Fox Television Station family is now bigger

At 10 PM, WJZY is third (yes, third) in local newscast ratings. A WSOC produced newscast on channel 64 and the CW affiliate's newscast both defeat it. At 6PM, WJZY has about 10 percent the audience of WCNC and 5 percent the audience of WBTV and WSOC. That’s crazy. At least WJBK dominates the 10pm n...

Re: Fox Television Station family is now bigger

They certainly are a better operation than the station in Houston or the dumpster fires in Chicago and Charlotte. The Charlotte outlet, WJZY (and its sister, WMYT) have been sold to Nexstar, in exchange for WITI and KCPQ. It’s interesting that Fox was willing to sell WJZY, which is in an NFC market...

Why do folks hate Maurielle Lue at Fox 2?

No one seems to like Maurielle Lue at WJBK. Some even say she seems to bring down their entire morning news operation.

I personally think she’s gorgeous.

Her resume is also impressive. I just don’t get the hate.

Re: Fox Television Station family is now bigger

I still think WJBK is one of the best Fox owned stations in the country. I put our Fox 2 Detroit on par with the likes of WTTG, KTVU, and KTTV WJBK has lost great talent over the past few years. Its newscast ratings are slumping big time. The early morning newscast's numbers are at their lowest lev...

Fox Television Station family is now bigger

On March 2nd, KCPQ in Seattle and WITI in Milwaukee officially became Fox O&O stations. This means that Fox has owned and operated stations in just about every NFC market in America. For college football, Fox now covers Washington Football, Washington St Football, and Wisconsin Badgers Football. Thi...

Re: Will history repeat itself? (Network switch)

WXYZ is one of the better ABC affiliates in the country. At least it used to be. I don’t know what it is now.
