They will now be known as “Even fewer viewers segment.”
Totally disagree. When my wife passed in May, the only media outlet I used was WNEM. I received a call the same day it first aired from an old acquaintance. Several mentions from others during the weeks that followed from my dentist and others. I believe it gets viewed more than you think.

When a former Bay County Sheriff died recently, His obit was on ObitMichigan, but was not in the Bay City Times/M-live/ site. I had to go here to find the information on him. This is a good alternative site to put them.

It’s gruesome to make money off of viewers grief. Everyone except the bean counters at 5 hate the segment
