Re: “Media Watch

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.

Re: “Media Watch

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."

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.

Re: “Media Watch

KVOA is behind the times and so left leaning, that I don't watch them anymore. This whole debacle says a lot about the company.

Can I just say this is a station who employs a climate change denying meteorologist?

Re: “Media Watch

Sorry, SonoranWinds, but your statement is completely inaccurate.

Why else do you think Shuster hasn't mentioned local TV News ratings in this column in more than a year?

Re: “Media Watch

"According to Mendelson,..."

"Well, according to Mendelson,... "

"Mendelson says..."

"At that meeting, says Mendelson, ..."

Well, at LEAST you confirmed the facts of this story with Multiple sources.

This is weak, even by YOUR standards, Shuster.

This is a blatant smear job.

Shame on you. Shame on your Editor.

BTW, readers, I looked it up. The firing occurred more than 2 months ago.

Do you file your stories via Pony Express, John?

Re: “Media Watch

Traveling Man..Consultants hapened to radio. Bunch of know nothng but sales radio owners hired consultants to program their stations and these consultants sell the same thing (format) to different stations all over the country.
Someone who knows and loves music and is capable of programing their own show doesn't have a chance against the corporate mentality.
Remember how fine radio was when FM first hit ?
