According to the website,
Is that the Tamron Hall Show website, the WXYZ.com website or some omnipotent website?

I though that show was airing on TV20 in this market.

Re: 737 Max Jets. Take a seat?

Fly by wire...bad idea. The 737 Max is not fly-by-wire. Rudder and stick control is connected by cables to the flight control surfaces. The spoilers are electrically controlled though. I seem to remember a pilot making a successful water landing in the Hudson River in a fly-by-wire airliner with no...

Re: Sinclair Seen As Top Bidder At Fox Regional Sports Network Auction

It looks like Sinclair is the "handshake" winner of the Fox Sports RSNs. The final price appears to be $10 billion. http://www.sportspromedia.com/news/sinclair-fox-rsn-disney-handshake-agreement Sinclair has also taken a majority stake in the YES Network with Amazon and had announced a joint venture...

Re: Sinclair Seen As Top Bidder At Fox Regional Sports Network Auction

Yeah, that political garbage interjected into a sports network topic doesn't really matter. Sinclair is now in talks with Amazon to get financing to complete the Fox RSN purchase. https://nypost.com/2019/04/25/amazon-may-join-sinclair-in-bid-for-regional-sports-networks/ It also appears that Major L...

Re: Sinclair Seen As Top Bidder At Fox Regional Sports Network Auction

Wellllll...y'all dont have to worry about comcast buying the former fox sports regional networks, because they couldnt anyway, same reason as Disney has to sell them "regulatory and anti-trust concerns". Where is this from? Comcast has taken itself out of the bidding for months and DOJ argued this ...

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

just read that DOJ has approved spinoffs for Scripps TV Stations from Tribune from DOJ. Which means TEGNA spinoffs will be approved sometime soon from Nexstar & Tribune merger. Got it from B&C website. The interesting thing about the sale of stations to Scripps is that Nexstar retains an option to ...

Re: Sinclair Seen As Top Bidder At Fox Regional Sports Network Auction

Sinclair seems to need to double mortgage the farm to buy things these days. I think that's going to be a major consideration. Then there's the possibility teams could not renew with a new owner and go with their own network, like the idea that's been tossed around in Detroit, or go with a new entry...

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

WFXT dropped the Fox branding an[d] it’s still a Fox affiliate. It was the best decision that station has made. “Boston 25” identifies with Boston viewers. Not yet. Its ratings are spiraling. WFXT's 10 pm newscast is running second to WHDH and in fourth place at 6pm and 11pm. Its also losing talent...

Re: Comcast and NBC in Detroit

I'm sorry your premice doesn't make sense. Fox is shrinking its presense in Detroit. It sold Fox Sports Detroit to Disney who is in the process of divesting FSD and its sister RSNs I don’t think Graham is doing well financially. Where do you get this from???

So watching the 11pm WDIV newscast and happened to catch a missed edit/blur of a non-pc shirt worn by an Ann Arbor student. I’ve edited this but if your imagination isn’t “quite there”, it says “F—-k T*****”, but clearly spelled out. Just wondering if WDIV’s editor missed this or was it something e...

Its also a great time to air in the thick of wedding planning for June brides. These shows are for the "bride-zillas" of 2020 and beyond. Any June bride for this year would have had that planning stuff already locked down for at least a year or two. No it wouldn't. By this time next year all that s...

Re: I would like to commend all broadcast meteorologists in the Detroit market..

The stations in this market do not spend enough on weather forecasting. 20 years ago they were dropping big money on marketable toys like their own doppler radar but, not enough on forecasting. In a state where most news viewers tune-in for weather you need a full time weather producer to coordinate...
