Re: What happened to Jennifer Profitt?

I find it interesting that Bill Harris said that Tom Eschen was the best sports person in the market. That’s when Greg Molzon was still with ABC12! Talk about eating manure and saying it tastes like ice cream!

And the GM “gives away” some FOX network swag/crap from shows that were cancelled several seasons ago. Nothings says “thank you for your service” like Scream Queens, Melrose Place, and Prison Break.
You’re kidding me.

Why not just give away dead batteries?

Ryan Slocum GONE!

Already scrubbed from the website. What’s the excuse? Spend more time with family? Pursuing other dreams? Selling cars or real estate? Can’t be because of salary. What was he making? Maybe $55,000 for working there more than 15 years? Guess that’s a career for most. Surprised J.R. and Angie Ostrichn...

Re: Battle of the Christmas concerts

The station phoned in a “going away” party for Joel with a local politician and a couple people from the sales team attending. He deserved so much more.

Re: Great addition to NBC25/FOX66

If Dave Bondy — not Blondie — wishes to take a job in his home state to be closer to family, that is his right. And he shouldn’t be forced to sign these anti-competitive, anti-worker clauses that Sinclair puts into its contracts and enforces if/when one of its workers find a better job, better mark...

Re: Great addition to NBC25/FOX66

So let me get this straight, Dave Blondie pays an agent in order to get him a job at the last place Sinclair station in the Flint market. Then he signs a contract that states he has to pay the company if he were to ever leave this job. So he is getting screwed coming and going. Most reporters and an...

Re: Battle of the Christmas set displays

So that makes it OK to go overboard with the Christmas decorations? I didn’t say the station paid out cash for the display. Of course, WEYI is too cheap to do that. My argument was aesthetics. It is waaay too much. That’s fine. I was just explaining why it is the way it is. When a company pays to h...

Re: NBC25/Fox66 forced to read promo

So you’re blaming the person who was fired for objecting to airing this crap... rather than the company’s decision to force local journalists to read political statements in the form of a news promo??? 101, Do you also blame victims of drunk drivers for being in the wrong place at the wrong time?

Re: Great addition to NBC25/FOX66

Yes, if you leave before your contract is up, the company goes after you for a percentage of your contract wages... even if you are getting out of the business or going to a market where you aren’t competing against the company (like Detroit). Then they enforce a non-disclosure agreement where you ...

Re: Battle of the Christmas set displays

I’m no Grinch and love Christmas as much as the next person... but 25-66 goes overboard each year with its set decorations. If a nicely decorated tree, a couple strand of lights and a poinsettias will do, WEYI feels the needs to buy out the entire greenhouse. It’s trade and/or cash from the busines...

Mike Schram was escorted out the door by HR back in July.
But he didn’t refuse to do it.

That video was made early 2018.

Re: NBC25/Fox66 forced to read promo

It’s the story that never dies... even though everyone on Pierson Road hopes it will go away and no one will notice. Even Sinclair’s golden boy/former FOX News anchor Eric Bolling says in the Washington Examiner (a traditionally conservative leaning newspaper) that local news “journalists” should n...

Re: Veronica Meadows

Big congrats to Veronica Meadows for landing a reporting role at Fox 2 in Detroit. When she left 25-66, management said she was making the move to get out of the business and pursue her dream of becoming a lawyer. Nope. Wrong. Seems all she wanted to do was get away from Sinclair, the GM, the News ...
