Re: WZZM Morning Anchor James Starks Leaving Station

There newscasts look like a public access channel. Stark set and graphics. TV 13 never recovered from being owned by Price Communications. A long way from the ownership of West Michigan Telecasters.

Re: Linsey Davis

Good things happen when you can get out of ABC12 where careers go to stall. Pretty sad when after many years your demo reel is just Snowfest and Back to the Bricks

Re: Kylie Miller leaving WNEM

It would be nice to see Leslie Toldo replace her. Leslie is much better than NBC 25.

ABC 12 Weekend Newscasts

In ABC 12 is just going to run reporter packages from WXYZ, why not simulcast their weekend newscasts.

Re: Always New Faces on Doppler 9&10 Weather

9&10 is a starter market. You get experience and move to a larger market for a better position. Northern Michigan is a non destination market
Nobody should spend money to go to school and want to spend a lifetime making low money at 9&10 or 7&4.

Re: WJRT is taking a beating on Facebook

I saw the same newscast. Totally unacceptable unless Gray wants to run a high school public access channel. TV 6 in Marquette does a better job.

Re: Stephen Clark out at 104.3

Detroit never brings in new talent, just recycles the air talent already in the market.

Re: Gray wants to buy Tegna (WZZM parent)

Gray owns ABC12 in Flint. No change here. 13 will still look like cheap public access channel. That is what 12 has become.

Re: Return of the Grilled Cheese

Find a better job in a bigger market. You don't have to throw your career away in a non destination market like Angie and Matt.

Re: Painful to watch

Gray should sell ABC 12. They don't appear to have the money to run it.

Re: ABC 12 new slogan

The slogan should be " Your Trusted Public Access Channel for News".

Unless they fix the lack of experienced talent, unenthusiastic anchors and the weekend news, they will be that public access channel.

Gray is showing they should not own TV stations.
