Re: “Media Watch

"If he is a doctor (which I doubt), I hope the "plastic surgeon" is more careful with his patients than he is with his grammer or spelling."

Yeah, but you misspelled "grammar."

Re: “Media Watch

As I look back, it is clear now. Time reveals the truth. John C. Scott is a failure. None of the major stations wanted him. He failed at all the other stations amid lies, manipulation and deceit. All who worked with him were just as dishonest and the end always came justly. Every station he was at and paid to be on eventually showed him the door. John C. Scott and the others got what they very well deserved. There could not be a more fitting end to such devious, dishonest individuals.

Re: “Media Watch

Greetings Jess and VETS,

What a bittersweet joy I had in discovering TOP. You started it a year after I retired in South Korea. Initially a draftee to three tours in Vietnam and ended up retiring as a 30 year Army Veteran. My wife and I have a small balloon twisting ministry to disabled homes and orphanages and hospitals and anywhere where people need cheering up. Hopefully, a fellow Vet - Dr. Mike Foley will resume his trips to distribute free hearing aids. Good Lord willing, we will join him. I know of Christian missionaries working throughout Vietnam in helping disadvantaged people and English training. Please allow us the privilege of any future partnerships with VETS and TOP Legacy. Grace and Peace, Chris and Eun Young (Sally) Vaia BRIDGER46@HOTMAIL.COM

Re: “UA Cutting the Funding Cord on AZPM

AZPM has survived Teri Thompson and Ann Weaver Hart. Plus viewers and listeners seem to be responding and ponying up at least as much, maybe more, dollars than these two mean girls took away.

Also worked with Allen in Las Vegas. I'm pretty sure it was the same company. I was startled when he did reporting when I was working at a station there considering I had worked with him here in Tucson for years.

Re: “Media Watch

April 2017: I see the other posts are from a now 3-year old, different programming model. Well, I really appreciate the current one! KEVT is now on the air with progressive talk ~ YAY! Love Thom Hartmann & Stephanie Miller ~ it's been way too long. And John C. Scott & Steve Leal are usually on-target on big local & state issues. a call-in
show? Or the station admin??? Fuggedaboudit. What is the problem? Thank you.

Re: “Media Watch

I just learned that this is the last Media Watch and I'm super bummed. It was a regular go-to column.

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.
