Nowhere was it more noticeable than at this month’s upfronts presentations in New York, where the “r” word on everyone’s tongues wasn’t “ratings” — it was “reach.” Sure, everyone still touted their No. 1 status when they could — … [Read more...] about 100 Most-Watched TV Shows of 2018-19: Winners and Losers

Ryan Ford Detroit Free Press Published 12:41 PM EST Feb 25, 2019 [This is our weekly Detroit Tigers email newsletter, bringing you everything you need to know throughout the season. Sign up here in a matter of seconds.] He’s the (No.) 1? After months of suggesting they were done with free agency, the Tigers made, well, not a splash, but a spattering in the market by signing second baseman Josh Harrison to a one-year, $2 million deal. The Freep’s Anthony Fenech thinks it’s a good deal for Harrison and the Tigers (Read it here), and it’s tough to argue that. (I know Jordy Mercer agrees, and maybe Justin Verlander does, too.) The bigger — and potentially upsetting — news is that Harrison will wear No. 1 for the Tigers. Harrison wore No. 5 for most of his career in Pittsburgh; the Tigers retired that in honor of Hank Greenberg more than 35 years ago, so, no. Such a shame to see Jose Iglesias (who signed Saturday with the Reds!) already … [Read more...] about Detroit Tigers newsletter: Harrison No. 1 on field, lineup?

The deep, friendly voice and black frame glasses that have meant sports for Minnesotans for 50 years is retiring from WCCO-TV. Sports broadcaster Mark Rosen started at the television station when he was a junior in high school. That’s long before Twins favorite Joe Mauer was swinging his baby bottle. Before the Timberwolves and the Wild were found in Twin Cities arenas instead of in nature. Before the Twins scored World Series victories in 1987 and 1991. Before the Vikings were wearing Super Bowl rings (oh, wait …). Rosen is in the Minnesota Broadcasting Hall of Fame and leaves as the longest-tenured sports personality in any major U.S. city. Minnesotans have seen him on their Magnavox home TV consoles with built-in hi-fi, on black-and-white portables with rabbit ears on the porch at the cabin, on thin, flat-screen HD TVs in the living room and on the phone in their hand. He’ll continue to talk sports on the radio, but jokes he can get rid of his sport coats and ties, … [Read more...] about For 50 years, WCCO-TV’s Mark Rosen brought sports into our living rooms
