I remember watching that live. Huel's delivery on some of those texts was pretty damn convincing! :hat

I always lost my shit at "hell yeah." He straight up sounded like a pimp there. :lol
Yep. Valenti always used that drop.


My mom taught me an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It's too bad Repubes don't believe in prevention for COVID, but they can deny someone water waiting in a line to vote.

Huel is an icon. He's the best anchor in this town and will be sadly missed ...
I actually first read your accolades for Mr. Perkins last night and got to thinking.

I believe, in every rating that have been posted since I've been a member of the Buzzboard in 2019, Fox2 has been the least watched newscast whenever he is in front of the camera.

Overall.. for a while they were right there with 4 in the demos which is where it counts…

I just scrolled back thru the postings. The last TV ratings were posted by you in February.
How often do Detroit TV sweeps come out?

February, May, July and November. I’ll look and see if there is anything for May or July.

I'm reaching back a number of years here, but didn't Huel arrive in 1990 or so to replace either Vince Wade or Joe Glover?
