Re: WDIV delaying today's Tonight Show Episode.

So it's back to the future for NBC. Early on in the Carson era, they reran the Tonight Show on Saturdays and Sundays; a contract renegotiation in 1975 ended the Saturday reruns and necessitated the creation of SNL.

I remember once in the late 70s, they ran "The Brady Bunch" and "Gilligan's Island" in reverse order one afternoon. Boy was I pissed! Perfectly great day RUINED!
it would have been something to see them play the episodes in reverse speed lol

Re: Source: Cumulus Detroit is for sale...

i think the moves they made at KOA will backfire. They own the spoken word format with KOA, KHOW and KDFD "Freedom 760." Plus there was a full month to migrate any KOA listeners over to KDFD, keeping them in the iHeart family. KFI dropped Rush a few years ago and it's not made that much a differenc...

Re: Source: Cumulus Detroit is for sale...

Here is something to think about...In Chicago, Good Karma Brands , a media outfit in Wisconsin [owner of WTMJ AM]just signed a Long Time Local Marketing Agreement with ESPN Radio,Inc. [a unit of Walt Disney inc.] to basically take over the operations of WMVP am 1000.. Could something like that take...

Re: WJR hits another all-time low and takes a big plunge from last month's already terrible numbers!

WJR now has a worse AQH share in ages 6+ than 890 WLS in Chicago!!! WLS is slowly rising (in a market where more mainstream choices for spoken word programming exist than Detroit) and is now at its best mark in probably several years whereas WJR's numbers have quickly plummeted. My PPM encoding com...

Re: WJR hits another all-time low and takes a big plunge from last month's already terrible numbers!

WONW, there’s another station that is useless at the moment. Do they even have any local programming whatsoever? Nothing beyond any high school sports (if that). Defiance is a very small market and I don't think that WONW's had anything local since cutting out the last bit of standards music 15 yea...

Re: Will There be "Terrorism Alerts" during Tiger Broadcasts?

Sinclair is more likely to run these RSNs on the cheap. Any type of political shenanigans would burn bridges with the teams said RSNs have contracts with. It also should be noted that the main impetus for this deal was their current inability to buy any more television stations (since being placed i...

Re: Big News regarding ESPN 1000, Chicago

WTMJ/WKTI are obviously still Nielsen subscribers via an inherited contract with Scripps, and 540 got carried over. I’d expect that contract to lapse at some point. 'TMJ is a MLB and NFL flagship. I'll bet you a beer that they are required by contract to be a Nielsen subscriber. WKNR doesn't subscr...

Re: Big News regarding ESPN 1000, Chicago

Agreed about Goldhammer. He’s not good on the air either. I used to listen to Rizzo and Goldhammer about 10 years ago when all I had at work was terrestrial radio. WKNR comes in good in Toledo during the day and they were the best of a bad selection in middays, but that doesn't mean they were good....

Re: Uncensored music on 94.5 WXKR

No one expected the massive Puritanical overreaction to that SB halftime stunt, on the part of outraged viewers or the FCC. And the FCC forced Clear Channel’s hand into firing Bubba Clem and canceling Howard Stern on all their stations by levying that massive fine on them. It was a catastrophically ...
