Re: PP on Crack

Abortion kills an innocent human being. What if that innocent human being is born into a abusive, drug addicted household and no one to take care of it? And to be clear, I'm not advocating abortion. I'm suggesting that we need to think past the birth if the true goal is to save the live of the inno...

Nielsen No More?

Nielsen cancels 9 small markets.
Townsquare cancels Nielsen in ALL their small markets.
Is Traverse City/Petoskey/Cadillac heading for the trash bin?

Re: DeBlasio's Communism Doesn't Work In NYC Either

I could get into your misleading headline and your lack of understanding of what Communism is.. but I'd prefer a different route - In 1774, people living in in the New World (most of whom weren't born there) began protesting because they didn't like the way their country/territory/colony was run.

Re: WTCM-FM 103.5, etc.

if you can believe what's left of the newest public Nielsens, WUPS is doing great in TC. Are we reading the same numbers? 1.5 share shows that they are NOT doing great. In fact, this very censored report shows that over 80% of actual radio listening is not listed - which means it's not subscribed. ...

Re: WTCM-FM 103.5, etc.

but, in order for ratings to be locally-relevant (IMO), the market needs to be split. Ratings in a market like Traverse City/Petoskey will never be locally relevant. Markets are defined (as TC Talks explained) to make them as large as possible to attract national advertisers. I can remember markets...

Re: WTCM-FM 103.5, etc.

If Nielsen were to drop TC/Cadillac/Petoskey, would that affect the ownership cap? In non-market areas, ownership limits are based on 70dBu contour overlap. I believe that will not change the ownership cap, as the actual market definition will not change. It's still considered a Nielsen Radio Metro...
