Detroit annoyance list

Post by JLesinski » Tue Dec 08, 2020 9:22 pm

My top 3 annoying Detroit media:

Jason Carr-toolbag
Bernie Smilovitz-tired schtick
Dan Leach-impossible to listen to

Honorable Mention: Maurielle Lue-not as bad as she used to be but can still be annoying

Who causes immediate channel changes for you?

I can't hit the remote fast enough whenever these media personalities appear:

Kim DeGiulio WDIV Traffic - permanent (fake)smile; no substance
Michael Estime FOX2 Weather - seems like a nice guy but a little too happy and enthusiastic
Charlie Langston FOX2 News - Too loud and abrasive; why is he covering serious news?
Bernie Smilovitz WDIV Sports - On the air over 25-30 years (?) and no one has told him the truth??? Sorry, Bernie, you're NOT FUNNY!!!

Dave Dahmer. Just can't get past his last name. He should change it. And his voice sounds like somebody who would end up on a TV crime show. The station should give him a scholarship to Specs Howard to become someone different.

Jeffrey Dahmer's brother, Dave Dahmer, assuming he is a different Dave Dahmer, changed his name and moved away. It seems like using Dahmer on the air would be like using "Chester the Molester", like someone in the Lansing Jackson radio market did 40 years ago.

Frank Beckmann and Guy Gordon.

How either one is still there puzzles me. Frank's producer, Chris Renwick, is a better host, gets better callers, and puts on a better show when he's filling in. Guy Gordon never worked from the get-go. Trainwreck radio at it's finest.

1) Smilovitz- His act/schtick grew old at least 10 years ago. It's like fermenting cheese right now.
2) Valenti- The anti U-M stuff- I get it he went to MSU but at this point its vindictive. With him and Beard now I don't even give those guys the time of day.
3) Wojo- the radio one only- annoying voice sounds like he's talking to his children. Newsprint Wojo is ok.

All of 97.1 ruined sports talk radio for me. I cannot listen to any of them.

Tim Pamplin from channel 4
The woman who is on late at night on 950 on the weekends


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.

Pamplin isn’t a real nice guy... he also makes his stories much more exciting then they are in person... a little embellishment shall we say on how people are feeling... 4’s MO...

Nah, good for him for that. To me, he just seems too smug; like we should be lucky he comes in to do that dumpster fire show.
