Channel 7 must have bills to pay

Post by CircleWXYZ » Fri Mar 29, 2019 7:11 pm

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!

So!, ABC Network programming sucks anyway, If I had the opportunity to air something other than ABC I would. They should go Independent.

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

The wedding show is a beautiful thing. It's cheap to produce and everything in it paid to be there, throw in as many spots as you can sell and you have a nice money maker.

Good point! There you go Circle 7, That’s why Channel 7 did that, Smart move Channel 7, Definitely better than the network crap on a Friday night.

It’s also been going for at least 10 years... is Erin Nicole still returning from the great talent beyond to do the show?

Good time slot for channel 7 to air that. Its counterprogramming to the NCAA tournament on CBS and its out of a sweeps book. Its also a great time to air in the thick of wedding planning for June brides.

These shows are for the "bride-zillas" of 2020 and beyond.
Any June bride for this year would have had that planning stuff already locked down for at least a year or two.

No it wouldn't. By this time next year all that stuff is last season.
You book the hall and the church a year in advance. All the othet stuff you have to save up for months to pay for to get a few months before the wedding.
These business want to get their foot traffic started before wedding season.
These things also build advertising for ideas for prom season too.

I think somebody at 7 has had more access to market research then you.

Well,there are an increasing number of "groom-zillas " (not counting former Tigers reliever Buddy Groom) so how 'bout a show featuring these disgusting dudes ?

I could already tell that this was going to happen, make-goods for all those local advertisers who got preempted by tornado warning coverage earlier this month.


My furthest DTV tropo: KDKA Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at 202 miles for three days in January 2017 and a night in September 2017 with only an Antennas Direct C2V!

That's a good hypothesis, mtburb. You might be onto something.

Many years ago, I worked at a small radio station, and we hosted a wedding show. We sold advertising, spaces at the hall, and made a lot of money. It was a hit. And, the station received a lot of free publicity.

The show is planned out and content is sold months in advanced as well as taking a couple weeks to shoot and edit. But the "commercial" breaks are a great place for make-goods. The money made is from the vendors showcased as content, they pay for the effort. It must work for both WXYZ and the vendors, 7 has been doing the show for years.
