Re: WWMT is building a new studio and control room

Watched News 3 this evening mainly out of curiosity on the new set. Alot of copycat elements. Monitors on the front of the desk like 8, couch area like 13 and 17, monitor matrix wall like 8 and 17, anchors stand like 13. What caught my eye most was at the end of the newscast. Besides the copyright, ...

Re: WXMI Fox17 Got Scripps Blue Design

I did see a Facebook post from meteorologist Erik Kostrzewa showing the new look. The icons for the 7 day forecast look alot like what 13 used the last time I watched that public access level newscast. The morning news on Sunday still has the old look. Although the blue background stripe for lower t...

Re: Well this is slightly embarrassing Fox 17

Does anyone know how long did the bars and tone stayed up? I flipped back as late as 7 minutes past the hour and the 10 oclock news had still not started.

Re: Broadcasting From Home

Curious is Susan was wearing a lapel mic or using her computer's built in microphone. Forget what reporter at Fox 17 it was that bad audio during his/her first few at home report days but then I noticed a major improvement and also saw a lapel mic. Want to say it was Candace Montacelli (sp?) but I m...

Why would anyone watch 13 instead of 8 or 17? Is there anything ZZM excels at?

Re: Kamady Rudd Leaves WZZM

We know Alana Nehring and Aaron Ofseyer both left WZZM (and Tenga) on their own with Aaron's FB post making it sound like management was a big factor in his decision to leave. Kamady's FB post makes it sound like she was terminated. Wonder how long before George, Juliet and Catherine are shown the d...

Re: WZZM Hires Meteorologist

Interesting moving in the middle of this mess. But we don't know the back story, maybe he was let go. George's Faceboook post contained a brief bio about the new hire. Sounds like Michael last worked at Tenga-owned KYTX CBS 19 in Tyler, Texas. He will be working from there until the COVID-19 crisis...

Re: Meteorologist Aaron Ofseyer Leaving WZZM

Will be interesting to see where Aaron winds up given his statement they are staying in the area but does not say what he will be doing. Gut feeling that once the non-compete clause expires, he'll wind up on WOOD doing the 7pm weather segments and become chief meteorologist there when Bill Steffen r...

Fox17 Blitz adds Dan Harland

Fox17 has announced that former WZZM sports and morning anchor Dan Harland will be joining their Friday night Blitz sports show. No idea if he is joining the station full time or as a part timer while maintaining his post-13 gig as a Realtor. This makes three former WZZM staffers that have later wou...

Re: Any good skips caught today?

92.7 The Van was completely ripped up by some station playing "Happier" by Marshmello/Bastille (wasn't able to ID it). WYVN was off the air for part of the weekend. The storms that roared through early Saturday took down power lines in the Saugatuck area that resulted in the station going off the a...

Re: Janet Mason to Retire...

That station is beyond a train wreck. Why Gannett/Tenga kept her around is beyond me. Shocked nobody at corporate saw that despite all the changes, two things remained the same: low ratings and Janet Mason was in charge. One bonehead move MW missed in terms of Janet Mason's incompetence: failure to ...

Re: Meteorologist Anthony Domol joins FOX 17 Morning News

If he's going to be Tuesday-Saturday, I assume Candace Monacelli (sp?) will be Sun & Mon? Odd way of doing the anchor team scheduling. Then again way back Fox 17 used a Sun-Thu and Fri & Sat anchor schedule

Re: What ever happened to WZND Zeeland?

Actually the WZND tower on 96th Ave (literally right next to I-196) has not been used for FM broadcasting in at least 25 years. By spring 1993, the transmitter had been moved three miles east to 72nd Ave and I-196. The old WZND tower blew over in the May 1998 windstorm but was rebuilt for cellular a...
