Re: “Media Watch

Too bad they don't have a signal that reaches my home or work area. I would definitely give this station a listen, they seem to have their thumb on the pulse of my music preferences. I wish them well whether I get a chance to listen or not.

KMSB's news presence would have looked "significantly more professional" when it was an independent operation if Belo had actually invested in the product and hired a production crew that could handle live broadcasts competently.

Re: “Media Watch

Interesting format for KWCX, considering that most of the demographic in that area are farmers and ranchers. I remember when the KWCX hit the air in 1975 or 1976. It was a big thing for Willcox at the time.

98.1 KTBX in Tubac which is I think also owned by Ted Tucker.

Rumor has it that it's a better possibility now that DirecTV and AT&T have merged.

Is it true that Directv is adding Pac 12 next week for AZ opener?

Re: “Media Watch

I worked with Brett ("S!ick and Brett tha Man", after "The Houseparty", on http://Power1490.com )...best partner I ever had. We were the last morning show before they changed format...had A LOT of fun...and got away with many things on-air (and off-air). I always hoped he and I would do another show together...

And Ms. Germano didn't have a Midas managerial touch- just ask some of her current & former employees. Many of us are "former" for a reason.

You're just jealous that Shuster looks better in a cheerleader sweater than you do.

Re: “Media Watch

Take off the KOLD Cheerleader sweater and put down the Pom Poms, Shoe.

KOLD hasn't been "...a consistent No. 1 in the market ..." for more than a year which is why you haven't referenced the local Nielsens for even longer than that.

Re: “Media Watch

When Clearchannel became I heart whatever, I knew nothing good would ever come out of it. It just makes sense that Dub found a new home on a much better station.

DavidW has done more research to back his point than John Shuster has done during his entire tenure for this column..

‘The 213 months without global warming represent more than half the 425-month satellite data record since January 1979. No one now in high school has lived through global warming.’

Re: “Media Watch

I'm happy to see her go. She was a terrible journalist who preyed on mentally ill individuals and pandered to low brow intersts. I would be surprised if this were the only reason she got canned, but apparently nobody reached out to KVOA for comment. She was clearly defiant and entitled.

Re: “Media Watch

David - I tried to find a story where NASA announced that temperatures have been cooling the last couple years. All I find when I search is that 2014 was the hottest on record, and that the oceans have been slowing temperature rises. I would love it if you could point me to this fantastic story. Thanks

Re: “Media Watch

"Go ahead but NASA announced Monday that temps have dropped the last two years."

Come on now, David. Why and cloud that issue with things like facts?

Re: “Media Watch

Sue the hell out of them. Get a good (greedy) lawyer and go after them.
Kvoa has a history of this kind of crap and it's time they get nailed for it.
