Covers all of Northern Lower Michigan (from Ludington to Tawas northward), as well as the Straits Area and Soo Region.
Came across this clip from 7&4 Newswatch Sports. Scott Michael Trager, Charlie Whinham. I'm assuming this is during the "Beam Broadcasting" days, unless Federal hadn't changed the logo yet.
Yes, Dave Barons and (I think) Brian Lawson were also. I have seen a clip of Dave on 7&4. My understanding is there was a change over of Chief Meteorologist at 7&4 that pissed Dave off, so he went to 9&10 when Bill Spencer went to Toledo. Whether that is why it happened, I don't know. Probably more so about money though, as is usually the case.
