Fox strategy is working

Post by CircleWXYZ » Tue Feb 18, 2020 3:03 pm

I know people complain about Fox 2 showing so much news in the morning. I get that frustration, but this is all apart of the Fox strategy, from a corporate perspective.

Fox wants all of its owned and operated stations to show a lot of local news. Look at stations like WTTG, KTVU, in addition to WJBK, all airing a lot of local news. Not only is this to make up for Fox not having daytime programming. This is so Fox has a big local presence in its major markets. So, in an election year or when national news breaks, the station can break into the national news feed.

Fox News wants to be in every major market, including Detroit.

Look at how much WJBK covers the Fox national news feed. It’s a lot. I believe it’s the same for all of the Fox owned stations.

Fox has a brand!! From where I’m standing, Fox’s strategy is working. The Nine isn’t going anywhere, lol.

I certainly wouldn't call their 9-11 segment "news", unless you tag it 'social news'.

I do like that they frequently lean on FoxNews for any national segments and let the local folks do local or regional stuff directly.

I wouldn't consider Detroit a major market either.

Detroit is a major market, as is Cleveland. Detroit is number 14.

There are a lot of people who appreciated that Fox 2 was not tinged with Conservative bias like Faux news, myself included. Given that Fox News is such garbage, I do not like WJBK's reliance on the national feed. In my opinion, especially during an election cycle, this can alienate half of your viewers. Dumb move to me, but I totally understand their strategy as laid out in Circle's first post.

Fox News is the only true and real news out there.

I thought this was sarcasm, but then I saw who posted this. Nice to see our very own Archie Bunker has risen from the dead. Image
