Re: WOTV - Virtual Channel 4?

I thought GR was the only market that had 2 ABC'S. It would be interesting to see if any other TV market has 2 NBC's, CBS'S, etc. The Lincoln-Hastings-Kearney market has two ABC stations (KLKN in Lincoln and KHGI in Kearney). Until fairly recently, only the CBS affiliate (KOLN/KGIN) covered the ent...

Re: Oh Shit! May 15th!? Gov. Whitmer to extend “Stay Home – Stay Safe” into May

The good thing: She didn't extend it through Memorial Day (yet), like what Wisconsin and Illinois have done (Wisconsin's ends May 26 while Illinois' ends May 30). If she were to go much longer than May 15, there will be money leaving the state (assuming IN and OH have fewer restrictions by then, peo...

Re: 2020 National Cherry Festival canceled due to coronavirus

Any word on the status of the 4th of July fireworks in TC (which has been operated and funded separately from the Cherry Festival in the past)?

I do know Lake City came out a few weeks ago and said they'd sacrifice most of their planned 4th events in order to save their fireworks.

Re: Remember When What Is Now Comcast Cable, Cost $5.00 A Month?

From newspaper archives I've seen (and the 1980 edition of the Broadcasting Yearbook), Traverse City never had WJRT, but did have WKBD (on cable 3!), as well as WBAY, WFRV, WLUK, and WZZM. Side note: 7&4 was on 4, 9&10 was on 10, 29&8 was on 8, and WCMU was on 6, as they all are to this day. Some no...

Re: Great Lakes Reception Maps

Well done! I haven't seen FM DX data presented quite like this before. The map answers questions that I would never have thought to ask. Back in my formative years, I was intensely interested in the correlation between TV DX conditions--especially on UHF--and severe weather. I had several interesti...

Re: No mass gatherings in CA for at least another year?

Semi-related is what Cembalest's boss Jamie Dimon told analysis today: “A rational plan to get back to work is a good thing to do, and hopefully it will be sooner rather than later,” Dimon said Tuesday on a conference call with analysts. “But it won’t be May. We’re talking about June, July, August,...

Re: Best/worst announcers of all time.

I know Pat O'Brien's voice and I know what he looks like. I remember his sportscasting days fairly well. He was mostly a roaming reporter / studio host. The CBS play-by-play man whose name escaped me was Tim Ryan. Absolutely hated his work on NBA basketball and NFL football. He was a rock solid spo...

Re: Covid 19 Media Layoffs Begin - Entercom

To Cumulus' credit, they did prepay a good chunk of debt via asset sale proceeds and free cash flow from operations in 2019. However, that momentum has now come to a grinding halt. Because of the election and great economy coming out of 2019, all expectations were for 2020 to be a good year from a ...

Was this on the car radio, or a portable?
Portables (the Tecsun PL-390 and the Sangean HDR-16). In Orlando, with the HDR-16, I was able to get a nearly-consistent HD lock on 93.7 WOGK despite being two miles from a 93.5 translator.
