Re: “Media Watch

Another column down the drain. Same direction the weekly is going.
You took a good community paper and started ruining it right after the sale. You should be proud of yourselves.

Re: “Media Watch

Talk to the 13 announcers who have left Downtown Radio in less than a year. I'm sure you'll hear plenty of negative feedback.

Re: “Media Watch

No negative comments about the station??? But a multitude of people mistreated and dismissed by a control freak of a station manager at Downtown Radio. Plenty of internal complaints about the manager but no board to address as he controls everything. There's quite a lot of complaints about unprofessional-ism even harassment of female announcers. Slander, defamation seems to be the go to of the station manager after he mistreats and wrongfully dismisses people. LOTS of complaints. It's a 501c3 being run for the profit of the GM. Dig a little deeper, Schu
Sad this is your last column and that this is the subject matter.

Re: “Media Watch

So video really HAS killed the radio star, as well as print journalism, and it will likely soon kill journalism itself. Now only Jim Nintzel's work distinguishes the Weekly from the lifestyle mags /rags that litter the Republican areas of town.

Re: “Media Watch

I wonder where you'll end up? Could it be the hokey web site you spent the whole column plugging? As always, fantastic journalistic integrity, bub.

Only reason I came to this site was to read this column, sad to see it come to an end. +1 on the blog idea!

Re: “Media Watch

Good luck John. I have enjoyed reading your coverage and occasionally even your odd opinions. I will miss this feature, which has been the only regular visit I've made over the past couple of years.

Re: “Media Watch

This is one of the few sections of the Weekly that has actually involved reporting/journalism and not opinion. Sad to see you go. Write a blog and let us know what really happened behind the scenes with the end of this column! It would be fitting! :-)

This is what happens when out of town conglomerates buy up local media outlets.

Re: “Media Watch

I always looked forward to your column, so thanks for writing. Sadly, there's nothing much worth reading in the Weekly any more.

Re: “Media Watch

Hansen may be pining for Utah, but he's taken plenty of pot shots at the University of Utah's teams over the years -- most recently denigrating their men's basketball coach. Anyway, thanks for one of the better written columns in the TW and good luck with whatever's next!
