Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2019

2p Monday 11/4, Well, well... WPON 1460 is on, playing soulful oldies and a live DJ, saying "This is the 20-Grand Review show on WPON 1460, we're back, we're glad to be back home." Quizzing about a song, asking listeners to call 248-557-1460 or web wpon.com. WCXI 1160 is on, playing French language ...

Re: Turner Classic Movies on Comcast

My biggest issue is I really only have cable companies to choose from for my internet access, and those prices seem to be always going up. Or they want you to sign a contract for a discounted rate that will ballon up later. The chances of getting fiber in my area is slim to none. And once you (or I...

Re: Warren Pierce

Warren Pierce is boring and talks about absolutely nothing. It takes him five minutes to ask a guest a question because they are so wordy. He’s a great cure for insomnia. It's only by the occasional accidental tune-by that I've ever caught his show. When I have, it's been pretty much like stumbling...

RetroTV changes in the works?

Earlier today I went to "myretrotv.com" to see if I could find what actual movie was being aired on RetroTV, WHNE 14.7, as the film did not match in any way what the EPG or TitanTV listing showed. The retroTV site was Not Available, it turned out, for many hours. Later this evening, the RetroTV home...

Re: TCM

A recent billing statement from Xfinity/Comcast mentioned that TCM would be removed from whatever "tier" I'm on and become part of a higher-priced bundle of stuff I won't ever want to watch. Sure enough, It's now unavailable both from the cable box and from TCM streaming app. Getting ever closer to ...

Re: Fillings

The metallic amalgam in old style fillings could act as a rectifier diode (like that in an old crystal set, detecting amplitude modulated (AM) signals. You would have to be nearby a strong RF field for that to happen. Same for any metal-to-metal junction. Besides kitchen appliances, there used to be...

I gotta rescan!
If a station's RF channel has already been scanned in on a receiver, any added-on "dot" subs should just appear and not require a rescan. Some sets might want you to check off in tuner settings whether or not you want the new sub as a "favorite" to be in your Ch. Up-Dn selection.

Just so long as they get rid of the fill in that is on there now.
There's more than one fill-in at Fox2. What or who "now" are you talking about? IMO, two I"m aware of, Lori Pinson and Jill Washburn, are excellent, both are degreed meteorologists and know their stuff.

Fox2 job postings

WJBK Fox2 has posted a number of job openings. Some in sales, technical and graphics areas, but interesting that one is for "Meteorologist, Regular, Full-time."
Adding on, someone leaving, or part-timer/temp changing status?
