Re: Union organizing

Let’s recap, orgasmman. The place used to have a union. While the union was there, members said that they didn’t feel valued, felt underpaid, had horrible morale, and was in last place. Workers dissolved the union. Same environment. Now, someone is saying “Hey, I’ve got an original idea! Let’s unio...

Re: Union organizing

Bringing the union back might also get Sinclair’s attention to make some meaningful changes at the top. I'm going to say that is highly doubtful, but I've never been part of a union. I'm merely basing that off the discussions here. Maybe you're right. And honestly, I hope you are right. From what h...

Not a fan of Terri Ray or Omelette. KLT just sounds too dated IMO. Can only listen to BOC, Journey, Kansas, Foreigner so many times ya know?
Look up and play a bunch of "B-side" songs that most haven't heard. It'll be a nice "fresh start" of sorts. Or new music by same or similar artists.

Re: Multiple City IDs Past, More Recent, and Present

Some past from TV: 9 WWTV Cadillac/Mt. Pleasant/Traverse City 6 WJIM Lansing/Flint/Jackson 11 WBKB Alpena/Oscoda/Tawas City Seems kind of odd (to me) that Mt. Pleasant would be listed before Traverse City. But oh well. But to go with that one, when you have another station simulcasting: 9 WWTV Cadi...

Re: Appalling lack of diversity at NBC 25/Fox 66

Organman: technically you are correct. Ahmad was given the position and responsibilities of Chief Meteorologist without the title. I see. Isn't that what his role has been? Or is just an interim type of thing? I remember Joe Charlevoix at WPBN was doing those duties between Greg MacMaster and Mark ...

Re: Appalling lack of diversity at NBC 25/Fox 66

It’s also been pointed out that I didn’t include Ahmad in my list. Excellent point since Ahmad is one of the first Chief meteorologists of Middle Eastern decent in the US. Another excellent point... Ahmad was hired by Kathy Reynolds, the news director before Sinclair took over. When did Ahmad becom...

Re: 106.7 is no more

"If you stop at 106, you haven't reached THE PEAK. The difference is .7." - Liner from the mid- or late '90s. Peak was the edgier and more fun station (at least until they went Hot AC), but KHQ obviously did something right to have survived as long as they have (they'll be 40 in a few months - as w...

Re: Meteorologist Alana Nehring Leaving WZZM

So I wonder if who they hire in January will be in line to be chief once George retires or if Aaron will become chief? Who knows. A lot of times people are brought in specifically coached to take over a high position. I believe WWTV/WWUP in Cadillac did that with Tom O'Hare (as I recall, he was hir...

I hope you aren't losing sleep over this.
I see the point but the moniker is sort of catchy like 90s, double zeros and today isn't.
"double zeros" lol...

I'd say 90s, 2000s, and today. Although I do agree, doesn't sounds as good as "80s, 90s, and now/today"

Re: Lodging/hospital cable lineups

If I remember correctly, a year or two ago when I stayed at the Quality Inn in Coldwater, they had both the Lansing/Jackson and Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo channels.

Re: 106.7 is no more

When I was growing up in the 90s/early 2000s, it was always a "which is better, KHQ or The Peak??"
