Re: “Media Watch

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.

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! :-)
