Re: Will history repeat itself? (Network switch)

Only if ABC were to buy WDIV. That would be insane. If WXYZ were to lose its ABC affiliation, man. I’ve always said that ABC wants to own a station in the Detroit market again. Anything is possible. This would mean Fox, CBS, the CW, and ABC all will have owned and operated stations in the Detroit m...

Will history repeat itself? (Network switch)

As we know, last December 11th marked the 25th Anniversary of the big network switch, where longtime CBS affiliate WJBK became Fox, and CBS went to the downtrodden WGPR-TV (now WWJ-TV). Detroit television has not been the same since Fox’s ratings went up dramatically in Detroit, and CBS’ ratings in ...

I wouldn't consider Detroit a major market either.

Detroit is a major market, as is Cleveland. Detroit is number 14.

Re: FOX2 Mornings hit with the Lue Flu

As stated on this board many times.. The site of Maurielle Lue makes me immediately change the channel. I ask myself daily why don’t they cut her loose?? Probably because she’s hot and attracts the African American viewers in this area. Notice how the station always exploits her um, well, assets.

Re: Fox’s strategy (WJBK related)

I wonder what WJW’s affiliation contract with FOX is. I wouldn’t rule out FOX buying another station in the market and switching. I’m surprised CBS hasn’t bought WOIO and WUAB, since they are affiliated with CBS and the CW, respectfully. Since CBS carries AFC games and the Cleveland Browns are in t...

Fox strategy is working

I know people complain about Fox 2 showing so much news in the morning. I get that frustration, but this is all apart of the Fox strategy, from a corporate perspective. Fox wants all of its owned and operated stations to show a lot of local news. Look at stations like WTTG, KTVU, in addition to WJBK...

New WXYZ graphics package

When is Ch 7 going to fully unveil the new Scripps open package, including its news open? I thought it was supposed to be yesterday.

Fox’s strategy (WJBK related)

As we already know, Fox has purchased WITI in Milwaukee and KCPQ in Seattle, while awaiting FCC approval. They’ve already purchased KTVU in San Francisco. Is the strategy to purchase stations in market that’s an NFC city and/or is college football and basketball ready? WJBK is in the Detroit Lions m...

This is an epic fail.

I’ll give this a few months. They will get slaughtered by Fox 2
