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.

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!

Re: “Media Watch

Tired of PC, the media is no longer worth watching. They are extensions of political parties controlled by the big money foundation frauds.

Re: “Media Watch

Why is this the last media watch, or maybe I should say radio only watch, column? This used to be a good column.......& maybe that's why it's the last.

Re: “Media Watch

Sony Wasu was totally biased in her reporting on a student fight at Sahuaro HS relying on a "source" who was the mother of the "victim" who started the fight. Good riddance.

Re: “Media Watch

"Best Buy," "about 20 employees." Face it — John likes to make stuff up.

Re: “Media Watch

Let me help with clearing this up.

Yes, the building was a LaBelles. They also had a a location on the NW corner of 22nd Street and Craycroft Road, long before there was a titty bar in that same "strip mall" (chuckle) that has changed names probably more times than I bothered to change my underwear this week. (I know, ewww! At least I don't go commando; but I digress...)

The location at the NE corner of Fort Lowell Road and Oracle Road (or possibly still very much considered HWY 77 at the time, I'm a bit fuzzy on that because I grew up on the east side of town outside of city limits. Sorry!) changed their name to Best at approximately the same time as the 22nd Street location, which as far as I'm concerned indicates either a buyout or a corporate name change.

If my fuzzy memory serves me right, this all took place at least 25 to 35 years ago; oddly enough, the year 1986 strikes me as correct. Sorry that I'm not more exact on those numbers, this is something that hasn't crossed my mind for years. Although, not all to long ago, possibly about 3 years ago, Mr. Schuster made the same mistake when labeling this area as a former location for Best Buy. Shame on you John! You should read the comments that accompany your articles, you might actually learn something.

Re: “Media Watch

I believe the building at Ft. Lowell & Oracle began life as LaBelle's, a Catalog Showroom store, and became a Best & Company for a while (another catalog showroom) before it began to house radio stations.
