Re: Soccer coming to WMYD 20

When are the contracts up for the major sports teams? I agree- it would be terrific if 20 steps up and grabs even a handful of games. Only way that happens is if the teams produce the game broadcast, sell the adds and then buy the time on 20. That would depend on how hardball Sinclair tries to nego...

Re: Under representation in TV news

Hispanics are 17% of population and African Americans are 13%, why don't I see more Hispanic news anchors?
Because you don't live in Texas, California or Miami. I would hope the local stations would attempt to recruit Yanet Garcia for weather caster.

In order to claim some political money, they will need to generate a rating point. Hash marks won't cut it.

I wonder who they hired to be the MMJ's? I'm sure I'll see them out in the field soon enough.

Nice having Deena back. She is the glue holding that mess together.

Re: Kid Rock

It is Kid Rock's right to be a drunken buffoon and I doubt the Oprah cares one bit about Bobby's opinion but the Pistons and Wing's are trash teams and to the people who actually put $$$ into this restaurant probably wanted a reduction in rent due to the reduced foot traffic that an empty arena brin...

Re: Another glaring example of the PATHETIC news media in the Detroit market...

It would be interesting to know what happened to that State Trooper, but if the victim was paid off and can't speak about it, then it's very hard to do a story on it. The media securing that security footage guaranteed the guy who was wrongly arrested a nice payday and made that State Trooper very u...

Re: Another glaring example of the PATHETIC news media in the Detroit market...

The state must have offered the victim a very large out of court settlement with a non-disclosure clause. That was very embarrassing for MSP.

Perhaps you should challenge JJ for morning supremacy by getting a job at 4 or 7 as the morning EP.

There is no mystery here, the new boss didn't want Elrick working for a competing local media platform.

Re: Which Metro Detroit cities are declining and which are improving?

Fun fact about Berkley, it has the highest number of TV employees per capita of any city in Metro Detroit. A very large number of employees from 2,4 and 7 as well as televised sports PxP technicians are Bears.

Re: Which Metro Detroit cities are declining and which are improving?

What are you basing these judgements on? I'm going to add Hazel Park to the improving list and Roseville to the declining list. I actually think Taylor is improving.

It seems like a good time to look at the Judgemental Map of Metro Detroit and see how the area has evolved in 5 years.
