Another Buzzer here had speculated a Hansen move to WILX; glad to hear GR, as at least I'll be there from time to time to watch.

I wish him well, but hope WZZM is better on-air than on-line. The 'ZZM web site is about the most incoherent collection of 0's and 1's I've ever seen attached to a broadcast operation.
Good for him. Larger market.

Yep.

Plus, he gets to work with former Brewvine & 10 (& CMU) alum, Samantha Jacques!

Kind of a "duh" question, but what is this reference to Brewvine I see here and there?

Brendan Kinney has returned to 7&4 anchoring the morning news (there's nothing on the web site acknowledging that Kinney exists, as of this writing). Mark Watkins is back doing the morning weather. Whether these are 'permanent' assignments, or more of the same juggling they've been doing since Sprenger left is anyone's guesss...

Samantha Jacques (below left) with Haleigh Vaughn in 2019 on what looks to be the front lawn of 9&10's mausoleum in Cadillac.

Both were lured away from the 'vine to the BBD rather quickly. The pic above was pulled from the video below (subject to disappearance):

I'm sure Google gives an answer to that. If you watch the station at all, you're subjected way too many 'impressions' of the promo for it.

I use BV as their moniker sted of '_&_News' due to a distaste for the latter.

Well ok then. Relatively recent lol.

Brendan Kinney *might* simply be a fill-in, as Matt Soltysiak often filled in sports after he left 7&4 for a couple years. I believe most of his 'filling-in' was during a period that Giacamo Acardo became a parent, and then again when he left. 7&4 went through some really odd scrambling for fill-ins under Barrington.
