WXYZ DETROIT — Once again, it’s time to see what’s on the minds of our viewers. We begin with some reaction to our 2024 Brightest and Best high school scholar’s editorial. Laurie Swier said:

“I was hoping my son would have made this, but he was #5 of the top 10 graduating seniors.”

Channel 7 Facebook friend Linda Johnson Robb replied:

“Congrats to your son. Sounds like he’s going to have a great future ahead of him!”

Iris Woods wrote:

“Help me congratulate my grandson Kelvin for making Michigan’s Brightest and Best. WXYZ Channel 7 will feature all the 2024 scholars who made the list. Congratulations Kelvin. We are so, so proud of you.”

Five hundred and eighty-nine TV-7 Facebook friends “Liked or Loved” Ms. Woods’ post. They sent us oodles of congratulatory images.

Our station editorial congratulating the Michigan Central Station team on their grand re-opening triggered these responses. Andrew Higgins remarked:

“Now all we need, is a train.”

All in time Mr. Higgins. We have to crawl before we run!

David Hamilton wrote:

“Restoring part of Detroit’s past glamour.”

Carl Brooks said:

“Thank you, Ford Motor Company!”

Another viewer simply said:

“So beautiful!”

- Anna Welke Trionfi

Carolyn Stanley Wixson declared:

And finally, two quick reactions to the Rocket Mortgage Classic gold tournament. One viewer wrote:

“Love the DGC (Detroit Club Club).”

- Judithann Otto

And Jaden Hidalgo said one word to describe his feelings:


That’s it for now. Thanks for writing and watching.
