Re: Patty Kolb Out as General Manager at Fox 17!

This is hilarious, and entirely off base. No one in the GR/Kzoo market has or will make anything near this number. 450K is a ridiculous numer in the lower top 25 markets, let alone GR/Kzoo
You did not understand. The market I referred to is San Francisco, California.

I worked with Kim years ago in Kalamazoo. I think she will do a fine job.

Re: Patty Kolb Out as General Manager at Fox 17!

And I think you'd be surprised how little the talent in most places gets paid. Im sure some of the former TV GM's that grace this site can expound on this topic better than I, (Gil) but I would guess very few "big price talent" exist in GR/Kalamazoo. To be honest, I don't remember much about talent...

Re: Explain local T.V news to me

why would 17 have their lead M-F anchor team work the Sunday night following the shootings in Florida, but they were nowhere to be found the night of the Kalamazoo shootings? There has always been a school of thought that the main anchors should be on the air Sunday through Thursday, because Sunday...

Re: 3-WJMN and Charter to end on soon.

I never really understood the whole retransmission consent thing. Wouldn't it be to a station's overall advantage to be carried on every platform available and reach as many potential viewers as possible? That has always been the cable side of the argument. One cable manager even told me he felt we...
