Re: WLCO 1530 to Smile FM

The last I knew, WLCO is nothing but a computer running in the WFNT studio. They may have 2 hours of local programming a day. The station may generate little if any revenue.

Re: Good news for U-M football fans who listen on the radio

Doug Karsh, who I believe is an MSU grad, should have his degree revoked. That would be like Bob Ufer doing OSU games!

Re: Dickerson's Call of Cabrera's 500th HR

And there is the "Pick The Stick" on Bally. This is the most ridiculous, inane thing I've ever viewed. And then there's John "I'm in love with my voice" Keating. Geez...I'd settle for Kirk Gibson doing the play by play, and maybe with Jack Morris.

Dickerson and Sheppard are just plain terrible. Somebody dig up Ernie and George Kell.

Re: Ron Cameron

Do they have a dead air alarm on this station?? If so, I bet it's going off like crazy.

Re: I Didn't Know

Watched today. They can't even get the obits right. I agree, Cheri is horrible on the air. Good reporter, but she should never be on the anchor desk.

I Didn't Know

While watching the 6 on Channel 12 last night, I saw a story on the closing of the Church St. bridge over I-96. I-96??? Wow...I didn't know I-96 went thru Flint. They showed the graphic at the bottom of the screen, and Cheri Hardmon even said I-96. Now 12 is on Lapeer Rd., where it parallels I-69 No...

Re: Best part of yesterday's tornado coverage by WOOD-TV...

Same thing in Genesee County. Duffield is nothing more than a railroad crossing. Over 100 years ago, it might have been a community, when the trains stopped there.

Re: Harbaugh continues to defend disgraced enabler Bo

Harbaugh is too busy trying to be a Schembechler clone. The thing is....nobody would have heard of Bo if he hadn't beat Woody in 1969.

Re: 40 years ago in 1979

The WIOG/WGER switch happened in July 1986. I know...I was in the Saginaw market at that time. Also, WTAC went country after the "Boogie" Brian fiasco in 1981. Peter C. covers it in his book "Local DJ.

Re: WNEM News Director flees before Gray takeover

Speaking of 12, what the heck was Cheri Hardmon doing the 6:00 news??? She used to do the weekends, but it is painful watching her non-stop stumbling thru copy. And that doesn't even take into effect the constant technical glitches. She's a much better field reporter IMHO.

Re: Big changes at “Specs Media Arts!”

MSU had a great Radio & TV program. Many people I knew got picked up by Lansing stations while they were still in school.
