Changes for Detroit television

In the most shocking move since 1994, WJBK and WWJ not only agreed to do an ownership swap, they agreed to a network swap as well. As a result, WJBK is now back to CBS and is now a CBS O&O. WWJ is now a Fox O&O. Fox is going to restart a newscast by 2020. WJBK and WKBD will now share facilities. Ver...

Sam Webb and WTKA 1050 (Ann Arbor)

While I find him to be knowledgeable when it comes to recruiting, I think he’s too much of a Michigan homer. Sam doesn’t like to call out certain coaches when they do a poor job and when someone calls in to criticize the basketball or football team, Sam and Ira tend to belittle that caller. This is ...

Re: Channel 7 must have bills to pay

7 isn’t strong enough of a station to go Indy. Their news talent sucks and their demos are even behind Fox 2 in some time slots.

WDIV would make more sense for a move like that

Channel 7 must have bills to pay

From 8-9 pm tonight, WXYZ is preempting ABC network programming for the WXYZ Ultimate Wedding Show. Another meaningless program just so the station can keep all the advertising dollars for a whole hour.

Very typical!

Re: Network tv switch, nearly 25 years later: who was the winner?

Warren Pierce was getting cars from dealerships for a week at a time claiming to be doing reports and reviews on them, which he was not. He had his wife drive the cars so that no one at the station noticed Warren had a new ride every week. Rumor has it, that he did this for years and Mort covered f...

Re: Comcast and NBC in Detroit

It’s unrealistic for it to be 1.8 million again. Maybe back to a million or close to it in about thirty years.

Weren’t both let go by WJBK?
Yes, because Fox Corp. was a lot less forgiving of their shenanigans than New World who owned them when they were a CBS affiliate.
Out of curiosity, what did they do to get them canned?

Detroit will keep losing its population status the next census is in 2020 that’s next year, Duggan is already campaigning to get the residents counted he was on 760 last week talking about it, Detroit currently has 700,000 residents, I bet when that census hits it will be 500,000 we will see. 500,0...
