Re: Evolution of Cable TV Channels.

Sadly, the Weather Channel has gotten worse - not better - under its new ownership.

Re: What does it take to get banned from this board?

I have better things to do than to babysit (i.e. censor) on behalf of a handful of overly sensitive adults.

Re: Evolution of Cable TV Channels.

How about The Nashville Network, which became The National Network (with a stupid emphasis on pop culture), then Spike, and now is the completely forgotten Paramount Network? VH-1 is another example of a network that's kept the same name over several decades but does not even remotely resemble the o...

Re: Andre Drummond thoughts

The fact Langston Galloway, Reggie Jackson and Markieff Morris are still here mystifies me. ALL THREE should've been moved, even if it was for a series of second round draft picks several years from now! Not a big Luke Kennard fan, but he's young, relatively cheap, and still has upside. As for keepi...

Re: 106.5 Toledo

How many people does that radio station directly employ? About 2, perhaps?

Re: Windows 10 upgrades are still available for free!

Not yet, and I regret not doing so previously.

My PCs are already so old that I don't feel like investing more money in them. Once they hit the skids, any replacement I purchase will definitely be SSD equipped.

Re: Democrats rigging Iowa results

Reportedly, a lot of people who were running the Caucus sites had no prior experience in doing so!

What a complete disaster!!!

Iowa should just move to a primary election. This Caucusing stuff is stupid and is a large reason Iowa has a mixed track record at picking winners.

Anu Prakash is leaving WXYZ

Decent air talent who has arguably been underutilized. 7 does have a pretty deep bench of desk worthy female air talent. The male anchor lineup there is a different story (channel 4 is world's better than channel 7). https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/wayne-county/2020/02/06/longtime-chann...

Re: Democrats rigging Iowa results

I certainly think Bloomberg's odds are better than Biden's at this point.

The Biden campaign is in panic mode. Interesting articles posted at Politico, Huff Post, and other sites. Tons of finger pointing. I would say the main problem is the candidate himself!

Re: Cincinnati holiday book

WEBN is active rock, it's been active rock for years, and it sounds nothing like WLLZ. WEBN is a great radio station.

The format descriptors on web sites that give ratings data are often outdated or flat out wrong.

Re: History In Grand Rapids

I guess ratings don't matter!

Political correctness does.

Are you guys done driving WLAV off a cliff yet? What you've done to destroy such a great station in such a short period of time sickens me.
