Re: WHNE needs your Help........

I like Red Green and appreciate the info!

His program is one of the reasons I wished Comcast still carried WCMU here in Metro Detroit.

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

I disagree about Sinclair being a "horrible, cheap company." They certainly are not cheap, as they infused considerable money into WEYI up in Flint and consistently deliver quality newscasts in Kalamazoo (WWMT) and Traverse City (WPBN). Even their duopoly in Dayton puts out a decent product these da...

Re: Is Bill McAllister voicetracking mornings at 106.7 Fake Wheels?

He grew up in Warren, so it's nice having a true Detroiter on the radio. LOL - all he does is read liner cards!!! Drew would've been nothing without Mike being a local guy from Rochester. Now, THIS I agree with. Drew & Zip were a ratings dud. Without Mike Clark, the dynasty would've never happened.

So then, how do you explain B103.9 in Big Rapids?

Re: WOOD TV Hires New Meteorologist

How on earth do my earlier comments represent "WOOD bias?"

Care to post something constructive, or do you wish to continue trolling this thread?

Yes, I absolutely believe Kyle's contract was not renewed, and I suspect compensation is probably the biggest reason why it was not renewed.

Re: Will URban expand in Toledo?

My guess is they are looking to sell their remaining stations to exit the radio business completely and wind down operations.

Don't be surprised if an outside operator comes into town and scoops up stations from existing indie owners in the area.

Re: Clueless meteorologists in West Michigan

Yup. I knew something was amiss when my Google weather app (which sources local weather forecasts from The Weather Channel) was calling for snow showers in Oakland County late Saturday night into Sunday morning! The cool, crappy weekends in SE Michigan are becoming rather tiresome at this point. The...

Re: WMOM shuts down

It would be difficult - but not impossible - to run profitably as a standalone. My guess is 45 North Media (operator via LMA of Eagle 101.5) is probably one of only two or three for-profit broadcasters who I could see being interested in WMOM. Dom & Jen Theodore - who have two stations in Cadillac a...

Re: Rare white deer

The photo was snapped at Kensington Metropark, just west of Milford, near the Oakland/Livingston line.

I have no idea what the hell "M-155" is, but I know for a fact no signed state highways run through Kensington. I-96 does traverse the south end of the park, though.

Re: Socialism fails in Ann Arbor

A new article published today on MLive said undisclosed "family issues" are responsible for the closing of the four stores. One of the owners is quoted as saying personal family issues outside of the business became too overwhelming to allow for adequate devotion of time to run the stores properly.

Re: WOOD TV Hires New Meteorologist

He was likely shown the door due to budget cuts. We've already discussed that here.

I like Kyle, and I think it sucks ass his contract was not renewed.

17 follows the same course as 8 when it comes to hiring young people for weekend weather duty.

If they do indeed file an app for a new permanent TX site, my gut feeling is that it'll be located in Cannon Township.

This stupid radio station plays "My Own Worst Enemy" by Lit and "Santa Monica" by Everclear several times a week but never touches White Zombie, Tool or even Megadeth.

I would like my crow bbq'd please.

I tip my cap to the professional weather geeks. Other than for a few hours of mid and high level clouds this morning, they nailed it! I - on the other hand - was way off the mark.
