Re: Comcast Removing Detroit and Lansing Channels

LPTV network affiliates are usually owned by one of the full powers in town. They require the cable company to carry them as part of compensation. Otherwise, they are not must carry. That's retransmission consent. To say "otherwise" low-power stations cannot get must-carry is incorrect. There are p...

Re: Comcast Removing Detroit and Lansing Channels

Took them 23 years to finally realize that the Cable Reform Act of 1996 exists. That was why WNWO was dropped from TCI's Downriver systems, which were based out of Woodhaven. I'm not 100% sure whether the act you're mentioning applies to PBS members and other noncommercial stations It does. Non-com...

A marvelous example of a veteran pitcher reinventing himself to extend a career. I congratulate him!
Just like Scherzer, Verlander, Porcello, Garcia, Rodney, et al.

Re: Ignorant UAW story

Nobody out of High School can live on $250 a week. Everybody that says what they make says it by the week or annually. Everybody pays their mortgage payment montly. Its easy math. The UAW member is probably comparing his on the job weekly wage versus his on strike wage. An average mortgage payment i...

That wasn't Beasley. That was entirely under Greater Media.

I rooted for 105.1 to work and they kept screwing it up and didn't do the obvieous.

The only way you're going to get another sports station to work is to get Valenti away from 97.1.

Channel 7 claiming #1 at 6pm

Channel 7 is running promos that it won the A 25-54 demo for September for its 6pm newscast.

Wonder if they can hold over the audiance for November sweeps???

Re: This Is Us tonight lasts 8 minutes longer than usual

They probably wanted to get the first 10pm quarter hour meter hit and get a carry over audiance into the next show. I'll bet both shows have similar demos.

And if there were more commercials they know they could pull it off because it was the season premiere of that show.

Re: New WJW graphics and set!!

Pretty much the same blueprint as WGN.
Not the most creative set design and the basic pattern and footprint is a throwback to the 80's.

- Big slide for 104.1 WVGR (WUOM)
I'm pretty sure I heard recently that WVGR would be off the air or even on reduced power for tower maintenance.

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

Start looking for the lighthouse on Fox17.

In a 3-2 vote Monday the FCC approved the Nexstar purchase and the divestiture of stations to Scripps and Tegna.

Re: ABC12 & Imlay City Accident

Wow!  Yeah, that was rough. To be fair his actual live shot on News 12 at 6pm was better. Not great but, much closer to reality. Its clear he hasn't had much on-air experience if any before this, at least based on his resume on the station website. But you can get better with practice. I'm pretty su...

In case you didn't hear, Fallon is going to be doing Tonight Show episodes right after football games on Sundays now. WDIV will be tape-delaying today's episode because news is on immediately after the game. WDIV didn't delay anything. NBC has scheduled the Sunday night Tonight Show s to air after ...
