Here I thought it was the "genius" consultants at Frank N. Magid Associates who dreamt it up. It was probably a collaboration of sorts.
Perhaps what I heard was incorrect. That has happened before :wink:

Re: News Fail

It's about getting the story out quick. Fast-paced society doesn't wait.

Proofreading is not as precise as it used to be.

Re: 9&10 New Graphics Package

Haven't seen it (although I'm on the east side of the state now....). I don't think they'll ever get rid of that logo as long as Mario Iacobelli has control of the station. I heard somewhere that he personally designed the current logo

Re: Low power TVs in Tri-Cities

Re: Low power TVs in Tri-Cities

Curiosity though, at least I've seen it on 38.3, what is "TEST-DT 99" after every show?

Re: Low power TVs in Tri-Cities

I believe Midland, at least that's the name of the licensee. Same with WFKB-LD

I like WFKB. WLLD, not so much

Leave Northern MI for a few months all kinds of stuff changes... Didn't know Bill Froehlich was back, and forgot Melissa Smith is there now.

Re: One person doing news and weather in market 12

I will agree, usually that is a small-market issue. But budgets do make or break.

Re: Roy loses another station....

Why would WTCM-FM be forced to move its COL? Why not move Christian-format WLJN?

He’s already said on that video he’s also staying at Right Brain.

Morning show is going to be music intensive with some old features from his afternoon show
Well with the main studio at WGFN, Smitty can do both the brewery and radio.

Re: TV RF Channel Changes

The station should explain WHY it is changing frequencies. There will be a lot of people asking questions.

Bravo was like A&E was, featuring cultural entertainment programming, though Bravo was more upmarket. Today's Bravo is the same channel which, like A&E, reinvented themselves many times over into a more populist format that's unrecognizable from what it used to be. Interesting. Learn something new ...
