Re: 30 Rock Special preempted

Did any of the NBC affiliates in Michigan air it? I was wondering why WILX was showing Full Court Press at 8:00 on a Thursday. Ironically, despite being what started this thread, WEYI ended up airing it at it's normal time. Here's what the other NBC affiliates in Michigan, including out-of-state-ba...

Re: "30 Rock: A one-time special"

WNWO is also preempting the special. In it's place will be additional reruns of Family Feud. WNWO won't be delaying it either.

Re: 30 Rock Special preempted

WDIV and WNWO will not be airing the special either.

WDIV is airing the local special Something Good in it's place, while WNWO will be preempting the reunion/upfront with additional reruns of Family Feud.

Re: CBSDetroit62

Unlike today, where a corporation can share call letters among different stations it owns in different parts of the county. KCBS-TV in Los Angeles was initially KNXT because the KCBS call sign was already used by it's FM station in San Francisco. When the FCC relaxed the call letter requirement CBS...

Voyeur alert! At the bottom of a Detroit News story about storm damage, it reads: Send us your photos or videos of storms and damage in your area (only if it is safe to do so) at online@detroitnews.com. The story already had many such pictures, but I guess that wasn't enough... ...and so they went ...

Toledo's most surprising event!

I just read that WNWO will eliminate their affiliation with NBC after 25 years and become an independent station for the first time in 50 years. As a result, it will now air 22 1/2 hours of test patterns, with the rest of the day filled out with their preexisting out-of-state newscasts. Where will N...

Re: WDIV in Ireland

It was carried in the strangest of places, so it wouldn't surprise me. According to the 1994 TV Factbook (posted on americanradiohistory.com), WDIV may have been carried in the following communities outside of Michigan (these communities are all in counties where WDIV had a 5% or higher net weekly ...

WDIV in Ireland

It was brought up on a Discord server today that at one point WDIV was carried in, of all places, Ireland. However, very little is currently known about this. There aren't even any mentions on if it was carried on NTL or Cablevision, which were two of the major cable companies in Ireland back around...

For some reason, the Oakland Press and Macomb Daily associated themselves with that abortion. Not sure why.
I also remember the Downriver News-Herald being part of that association.

Re: Three CBS-Owned CW Stations Add Nightly News

The newscasts will be produced at another CBS-owned station, which will add national news, sports and weather, then sent back to the station where it will air. In Detroit's case, it will be produced at another CBS-owned station that has a full news department. WKBD Detroit will debut 10 p.m. news J...

Re: WADL is removing Cozi Jan 1

WDIV 4.4 is now on the air and is airing regular Cozi programming (right now The Munsters). Three days earlier than predicted!
