"...bringing some things back to the Weekly..."

Yup. Nothing like looking at the Weekly on line, and seeing Danehy atop the sex toys on the index page.

It's like the earlier versions of the print Weekly, when you first opened to the back pages to laugh and snicker at the "dating" advertisements.

Re: “Media Watch

Last week's Tucson Weekly had a Media Watch article that was dated a week earlier. Today's Tucson Weekly, 1/29/15 has a Media Watch article dated 1/22/15, again, a week earlier. So, Tucson Weekly, WTF, over? Are we now only going to get a dated article each week, and if so, why?? I've seen current articles in the past over a long period of time, so what's happened?

Jan. 15 column still coming up. Did John take last week off?

Re: “Media Watch

I stopped listening to KQTH when Bill White took over. When Andrew Lee was PD, my radio stayed on for hours at a time. The only time that I listen to KQTH now is from 9 p.m.-Midnight, weekdays. So sad that Jerry Doyle, Neal Boortz, et al are off the air. Such good comedy....gone.
Tucson doesn't really have a good radio station now. Top 40 gets too boring listening to a never ending loop of the same old songs. When I want music, I listen to where I have discovered artists that I never heard of. I just can't understand why their songs are not played on any stations.
What kind of label would one give to a station that wasn't defined by a format/style, i.e. hip hop, rock, latin, CW, etc.? Just play an assortment of good stuff, from any genre. Novel

Re: “Media Watch

Then you get issues of Tucson Weekly when the Media Watch column is LAST week's column. Same thing this morning (1/22/15). No new radio, TV, newspaper, yard sale signs, NOTHING.

Radio, radio, radio, TV and TV stories.
I guess print doesn't count as "media"?

Re: “Media Watch

Whoops. We DO have KVOA on DirecTV, again. Guess you'll have to find some other lame excuse to flog KVOA for, John.

Re: “Media Watch

Where was this type of diatribe last fall when KOLD was in the SAME dispute and unavailable on DISH Newtork?

You are such a shill, John. First for KOLD, now for DirecTV.

You badmouth KVOA as often as you can conjure up the call letters then fail to eve mention that
DirectTV has ALREADY sent out notifications of rate increases for February and a commenter has to remind you that DirecTV STILL can't manage to come to an agreement with the PAC-12 Newtwork.

The Column Byline should read "by John Shillster".

Didn't Carly Simon do a song about you? "You're so lame"?

Hope you new editor is proud of this hatchet job.

Re: “Media Watch

I called DTV and added NBC east and west for $5. No more KVOA crap. Ad revenues will slide with loss of audience. Waived off the ADS...goodbye KVOA.

Who wants to be next?

Get a chromecast and watch PAC 12 through Comcast.

Re: “Media Watch

Isn't the Super Bowl exclusively on NBC? Will be interesting for the bars in town that have DirecTV and can't show it ...

Re: “Media Watch

Looking at the comments from KVOA's Facebook page, it looks like that they are losing the publicity war with DirectTV. Let's look at it like this: KVOA's parent company wants DirectTV to pay them what ESPN makes on retransmission agreements. This is utterly ridiculous. Here is a channel someone can get on an antenna and they want premium cash for it?? What's the matter KVOA? Tedesco's contract getting a little too much for you guys?

Re: “Media Watch


While you are in "negotiaing" mode with KVOA at the other stations in that ownership group, how about getting on with the PAC-12 Network? Hey, I love listening to Brian Jeffries coverage on the radio..but it would be nice to SEE those out of town games when Fox1 or ESPN aren't broadcasting the Wildcats.
