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!

Re: WADL is removing Cozi Jan 1

RabbitEars has updated the WADL listing to show that QVC has replaced Cozi there. WDIV's listings still haven't been updated.

Tonight's Blacklist is new. Does anyone know if Channel 4 is going to move it to another time or just not show it? If I was still watching that show I'd
be ticked, (but I stopped watching The Blacklist a few years ago so whatever.)
I can confirm that it isn't on either of their subchannels.

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

Friday night, WDIV will be airing a Live In The D special and an infomercial in place of a new episode of The Blacklist, which won't be moved or delayed at all.

Curiosity though, at least I've seen it on 38.3, what is "TEST-DT 99" after every show?
This "TEST-DT 99" screen also pops up from time to time on WDWO 18.1 here in the Detroit DMA.

Re: WZPX (ION) files app to move closer to Grand Rapids

Reception of WOTV will not guarantee reception of WZPX even once it's broadcasting at full power. Bear in mind WZPX will be broadcasting with a highly directional signal that will favor areas to the north of Gun Lake (GR, Ionia, Holland) and disfavor areas to the south (Kalamazoo, BC) . Those areas...

...they have been on a slow decline for a long time.
That's due to a number of new competitors launching within the past decade stealing away the rights to major shows that were once held by Retro TV.

Controversial Kevin Adell news

Feel free to move this to Political Potpourri if need be. As of today, there's very controversial news coming out regarding Kevin Adell in the sharing of a meme that's being seen as racially offensive. https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2019/10/15/kevin-adell-nabj-bishop-george-bloomer/...

5) The scenario that got the previous owners in FCC hot water, ie., unlocked doors leading to unauthorized station access.
I'm surprised no one actually tried to attempt to pull off a Max Headroom or Captain Midnight on WMNT back at that time.

Re: Cable systems that do not carry all network affiliates from their home DMA

Obvious thread bump as this got brought up in another thread. Comcast Xfinity in Sandusky is missing several stations from in-market Detroit (most notably WWJ), but it does have the Big Three from Flint/Saginaw. This system's lineup, overall, is straight out of 1990 -- it has only 40 channels and is...
