We’ll give you three… er, two minutes.

We’ll give you three… er, two minutes.

From Jim Metrock: Channel One has never been popular in Massachusetts.  Does the name “Billerica” sound familiar? It’s hilarious how the Dudley-Charlton school district in Dudley, MA “honors” their Channel One contract. Channel One’s contract states: 4) The School agrees to receive the Channel One News programs from Channel One and to show the...

Channel One News not hiring, as if you were interested.

Channel One News not hiring, as if you were interested.

From Jim Metrock:  Houghton Mifflin’s controversial Channel One News is not hiring. Summer is a bad time for this dinosaur of a youth marketing firm.  The summer months are a perfect time for schools to end their contract with Channel One.  When a TV show is losing their audience, why hire more people?

Maggie Rulli leaves Channel One News

  From Jim Metrock: Channel One’s on-air personality Maggie Rulli is leaving. Her last day was Friday, May 27.

Sadly she stayed with this...

Schools continue to disrespect Channel One News

    From Jim Metrock: Schools continue to show Channel One before school starts.  Schools that are serious about academics will not allow Channel One News to interfere with their school day.  The remaining advertisers on Channel One have to know that the TV show doesn’t have the audience it once had.

No one cares to watch Channel One News at the Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart

From Jim Metrock:  The Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart knows its students don’t want to watch Channel One News.  That’s why the school shows the controversial TV show before school starts.         This school like many others that still have Channel One have been breaching Channel One’s contract for years.  http://www.obligation.org/2012-10-10-catholic-hs-refuses-to-honor-channel-one-news-contract

What Mullins, SC thinks of Channel One News.

 From Jim Metrock: Channel One should at least be happy that Mullins High shows their TV show “between the bells.” There is no before-school or after-school showing at this school.  What Mullins does do is cut 1/3 off the daily program. Only 8 minutes of Channel One News is shown and that means one...

What Millersburg, OH thinks of Channel One News?

    From Jim Metrock:  West Holmes Middle School in Millersburg, Ohio begins their school day precisely at 7:28.  If you aren’t in class when the 7:28 tardy bell goes off you are, well, tardy. Students can be in the hall or outside at 7:15, 7:20, and 7:25, but at 7:28 school starts.  ...

What Mission, TX thinks about Channel One News.

  From Jim Metrock:  We can assume few Sharyland Rattlers are watching Channel One or its commercials.  It has to be irritate the marketing executives at Channel One to know schools are showing their TV show before school and then on top of that to be allotting 10 minutes for the 12-minute program. What’s...

What Hudson, NC thinks about Channel One News.

  From Jim Metrock: Signs of Channel One’s ruin are everywhere. Is there a school ANYWHERE in the U.S. that is honoring Channel One’s viewing requirements?? I don’t know of any, but there certainly could be a school somewhere that does.  South Caldwell High in Hudson, North Carolina shows Channel One before school. The...
