Flint City Bucks

Post by sinklair » Wed Aug 19, 2020 1:38 pm

If you were one of the five fans of the Flint City Bucks soccer team and were depressed that, due to COVID-19, you aren’t able to watch the games in person... congratulations! Following the lukewarm success of Cornhole tournaments, CW46 (it’s a real station) will be televising upcoming Bucks games.

Here’s the announcement (which was not posted on thecw46.com as of this posting — wanna bet that changes after one of the ASSistant GM who monitors the Buzzboard religiously sees it?):

If you think there was a H*** outcry for this type of live local sports programming, think again. If there was an audience, it would have been put on one of their main channels, not CW46. In addition, funding was secured after the station and team received a handout from the Community Foundation of Flint. (A good story for Mlive or another outlet to pick up!)

While TV stations are hurting from the lack of advertising, with as many problems that Flint currently has, is this really the best use of charity funds? Broadcasting soccer games? If the Director of Declining Sales can’t do his job and find advertisers, maybe we shouldn’t go through the enormous effort to broadcast six games.

Somebody please wake up the CW46 web “team”. We have big breaking news about airing local soccer games... but when you go to our website, it shows Big 10 cancelling fall football from a week ago. (No B1G football airs on CW... but local soccer does!)

I'm sure CW46 aired the Tigers opener VS the Reds a month ago they did on CW7 in the West Michigan TV market they don't air local sports in West Michigan thou.
