Metro Detroit: Newsmakers May 29, 2009




Detroit Free Press:

The Alumni Room was packed with revelers by the time the elevator doors opened, delivering a smiling Budd Lynch from his perch high above the ice after three-plus hours behind the microphone as the Red Wings' public-address announcer. His plan -- and Lynch always has a plan because he has remained, at 91, perpetually organized -- was to go in for a drink, maybe one vodka on the rocks, then head home to Wyandotte after the traffic cleared. But he needed to reach the entrance first. Lynch was stopped by a fan, then two more. All because, he would say later with a gleam in his eye, it was a "night worth sharing." Longevity is not the reason why Lynch has been among the most beloved persons associated with the Wings for the last 60 years. Still a fact remains: No other soul has witnessed more hockey in Detroit. The Red Wings have won 11 Stanley Cups, and Lynch's river-smooth baritone voice can be linked to all but the first three... Budd Lynch, 91, remains the voice of Wings' championship history (Fri, 5/29)



Detroit News:

The May sweeps book has closed, and WJBK-TV (Channel 2) has once again emerged as the No. 1 station at sunrise. That's in large part because of WJBK's top-rated a.m. offering "Fox 2 News Morning," which ranks No. 1 with viewers 18-49 years old and adults 25-54. The largest audience tunes in from 7-9 a.m. weekdays with 18-49-years-olds delivering a 3.3 rating/24 share, and adults ages 25-54 giving a 3.9 rating/25 share... 'Fox 2 News' delivers in a.m. ratings race (Fri, 5/29)
