I think the gimmicks make 5's newscasts look like high school broadcasts. It's just cheap & cheesy. I too am confused why they are #1! But many stations have these gimmicks.

I see their Facebook page is lagging behind, still stating "your trusted source". :lol

I would watch Wnem over the other two. For one Nbc25 never has local news, and if they do the other stations have already done it. ABC 12 is just having a way too many technical issues which makes it hard to watch them.

Although this almost certainly won't happen again, ABC needs to buy 12. Only then can everything be fixed. I say the same for 25-66, if NBC bought the station(s). But that won't happen, most definitely not 25-66.

SJL put the screws to Gray when they sold 12 and the Toledo station as a package. There is no way those stations were worth that kinda money then, or now.

Well, I don't think most stations are worth what people pay for

You’re right. That’s because they put so much money into their talent. Harris, Feick, Molzon, Slocum, they were making minimum wage compared to their replacements. Because “it had nothing to do with money.” Right?

I am confused as to why local channels have to emphasize news in their monikers. After all they are not a news network and the majority of their programming is NOT news.
Prior to the acquisition by CapCities/ABC in 1995, WJRT branded as "News Channel 12".

You mean “News Channel Hell”, as it was once called on air by an anchor.
