    Today in eye-rolling Scripps land:

    How not to use an ad in a weather forecast... it's down there in the corner next to the bug the whole weathercast, even covering the radar... so far it's isolated to their 10pm on WMYD. That bug is so big it covers the bottom of the last two days on their 10-Day forecast too.

    Incidentally the weather logo at the top STILL has the glossy abc logo and is a very fuzzy 720p like the old Scripps package. They say little things (like paying attention) go a long way to making things better...

    I like this subject...

    Here is the Eye Rolling Scripps "Active Stand-up" of the day...
    Don't try this at home kids, and get your parents permission before using a Bic lighter on TV.

    If you think that's bad, KGTV still has that same glossy ABC logo plastered on the front monitor of the anchor desk- 2 or 3 years after it was updated...

    Exactly?!? What is up with that? Actually, Ive seen the monitor updated with the new pearl version of the ABC logo on the weekend newscast a little time ago, I think Preston Philips was still there, but somehow they reverted back to the older logo since then. Typical KGTV.

    Now what's up with this hiring freeze? The station has yet to hire a weekend anchor and weekend weather anchor person.

    They have the correct logo on the weather desk monitor. Go figure.

    And yup, you're correct on the hiring freeze. FTVLive mentioned something about that a few weeks ago. And this month marks a year since Preston left, and the position still hasn't been filled--Dont think it will since they took down the job opening and the weather anchor opening a few months ago.

    And a good 4 years later...
    The traffic ticker is still repeating the same info...every day for the last 4+ years.
    Go figure.

    The traffic ticker is part of the capital expenditures budget. No new traffic ticker for another 4 years. #itsthescrippsway #storiesthatmatter #givelightandthepeoplewillfindtheirway

    Yeah, Give Light And The People Will Find Their Own Way.

    But that light from that Lighthouse is surely sending people in the wrong direction. But yes, that's the Scripps Way.

    Are you suggesting that it's okay to only save one buck when you could possibly save two? Scripps would fire you for such an atrocious statement. :D

    when i was a detroit kid i used to count on WXYZ but i was more and more tuned to WJBK because they were on the spot for breaking news and investigative stuff and WXYZ sometimes weren't as alert or at least i thought they were. i agree with the whole weather thing though really WXYZ?

    I think it's time to change the Scripps LIVE bug to a more traditional location don't you? Change occurred yesterday or today. Not bad.. flexibility is cool...
