Re: RSNs dragging down 25-66’s parent company

Sinclair would like to have a new branding to cover all the different sports properties they’ve purchased in the last couple of years. No word yet on what name or timeline for that consolidation. They currently own the Fox Sports regional sports nets, the Cubs and Yankees, Stadium. Let’s just hope ...

Re: Unbelievable, ABC12!

I'm not voting Harris in 2024 and I'm all for a female president. I was glad that Billary Clinton didn't become the first female president in 2008 or 2016 oh I mean Hillary. Maybe time will prove me wrong, but for now it's startling how different Biden and Harris are from each other. As the debates...

Barf!

Thank goodness for Sirius XM.
Amen.

Re: Christmas music 2020

I hate it. I guess I'm not the target audience. When I have to travel around Northern Michigan, I usually end up listening to MAC FM 106.3, primarily because it is the only station I've found that has as clear of a signal in St. Ignace as it does in Petoskey, and plays a reasonably decent mix of son...

Re: Linsey Davis

That is indeed good to hear. I didn't realize that Nightline was even still on. I guess I don't watch ABC very much.

Re: RSNs dragging down 25-66’s parent company

It was impossible to know that this would be crippling at the time of the purchase. I was kind of hoping that Comcast would take more of them, because I like the NBC branding. I like the FOX branding also --- so does anyone know what kind of agreement Sinclair has with FOX to use the "Fox Sports" br...

Re: Remote Control

There used to be an unsaid rule that you had to live in the DMA where you were reporting. It enabled you to better understand the issues, gave you a chance to make more contacts, allowed you to participate in community events and charitable causes, etc. However, management at last place 25-66 doesn...

Re: WNEM’s New GM

DAC: I doubt there will be much change. Ken is part of the old guard at TV 5. But at least he knows the market, station and people. Better than the GMs at 12 and 25-66 who are just flown in to mid-Michigan with the corporate playbook. Morale should improve at 5, as long as they keep Ken around long...

Re: Predicting a Trump Loss

DAC: the only poll that matters is the one that happens tonight — Election Day. Everything else is just noise. Polls, like endorsement stories, are worthless as an indicator of voter sentiment. And yet the media has bombarded us with polls since the close of the conventions. Why? What are they tryi...

Re: Kylie Miller leaving WNEM

Gee Stink, From all your posts about 26-66 you want everything given to you also! YUP, these Whine & Cry stories are getting boring. I agree they are getting a bit tired. The cycle here seems to have fallen into a form where Sink makes a post bitching about something, then 101 responds with a good ...

Re: Predicting a Trump Loss

Yes, R Bedell. What nobody in the media seems to get is that many voters, particularly those who are closer to the center than to extreme left or right don't participate in polls, rallies, or have tons of political signs everywhere they can plant one. If this elections were being decided on Twitter,...

Re: Trying to Swift Boat Joe

Have you noticed that most other media is slanting in FAVOR of Biden? Not one of those pricks care about democracy. The media is at the heart of the division of the country, and they seem to revel in it.
