AM Anchor

AM Anchor (4/8)



  1. This is about the debut of the weekend newscasts. I was told this from someone who works at the station. It’s this summer. They already have the anchors for the weekends. Summer was their target date a month and a half ago. Have no idea about the ratings. Last I’ve heard, ratings were improving each week. Again, I heard this a month and a half ago.
  2. They just finished hiring all the spots for the weekend newscasts. They are supposed to debut this summer. Heard this from a couple of people who are involved with the station.
  3. There’s a good reason why WCBS, WBBM, and KCBS are all in last place in their respective markers. All are a complete and utter clown show. On the other hand, we can clearly see why all the former Westinghouse stations like KYW, KPIX, KDKA, WBZ, and WJZ are all the better performing CBS O&Os based on their handing of the new CBS I&O graphics rollouts.
  4. Also, would WWJ dare go to the call letter box, following KDKA, WBZ, etc? I didn’t think so a month ago but now, I don’t know.
  5. Don’t know about you but I think WKBD going independent is going to benefit the station. Not only can CBS News Detroit expand which will only mean more advertising revenue for the station, WKBD can go back to its roots, which is to do OTA live sports again. I for one am excited. Looks like CBS is putting a lot of money into WWJ which only helps its sister station.
  6. I still feel WMYD will pick up CW programming.
  7. If they cancel Superman and Lois, which happens to be a great show, than I’m done with the CW.
  8. I also think they dumped MNTV because they are a bad network. I can see them affiliating with the CW. As for sports, Ch 20 can work around the CW schedule as they don’t offer nearly as much network programming.
  9. In Detroit, I really do think the CW will end up on Channel 20. I doubt it goes to 38. I also think we are going to see sports OTA again on WKBD 50. Furthermore, I do think we are going to see live newscasts again on Ch 50.
  10. All I’m going to say is the newsroom format WWJ uses is looking better and better. Stations like KCBS and WBBM are just a hot mess. My goodness!!!
  11. Hate it! Hate it! Nothing authentic about what WBBM did at all. KDKA, KYW, WCCO, and WWJ are all authentic! WBBM is just a mess.
  12. It’s all good. Can’t say what the exact numbers are, but again, I’m going by what I was told from someone who actually works there and is a well known on the air personality. The fact that they expanded so quickly is what’s most surprising, especially to the local competitors. This isn’t even all that I’ve heard but from the looks of it, CBS is heavily invested in Detroit news. Agreed!!!
