Re: Liberals Wanted Biden To Shake a Leg - Given Boot Instead...

Unfortunately, trips and falls are very common in folks with dementia. Hopefully he’ll have more than just his service dogs watching him when he enters the White House.

Re: More LGBTQIAMM+ garbage at Macy’s Thanksgiving Gay Parade

LL, is a semicolon good enough for LGBTQIAMM, or do they really need the whole thing?

Re: What are you thankful for?

I’m thankful for the police, who keep my family and community safe.
I’m also thankful for the FOP, who protects the people that protect us.

My wife and I brought a frozen turkey to the precinct last night to show our appreciation. They loved it!

Re: RIP 89X

No way. Of all the country stations in town, 99.5 is king. I’d rather have the dominant Subway in town than be the only Indian restaurant in the blue collar white suburb.

Re: RIP 89X

Been streaming on and off for the last couple hours and it’s not bad. The gold tracks are good, but hearing quite a few currents that had me racing for the off button. This sounds like a low 2-share at best, but I’ll preset it for when I’m in the area again. And I agree with Mega Hertz, the sweepers...

Re: 98.7 Alternative!

There is literally no chance this gains anywhere near the ratings The Breeze got. But, as MW said, this is likely a cost-cutting move, as Entercom will likely only have one local jock (at most). Strange move here, as the ratings for Alt, 89X (back in its alternative days), and The River really don’t...

Re: Soaring Eagle to stay open

Exploitation of Injuns? What a ridiculous comment. The employees are members of the general public. Casino gambling at mega casinos such as this one generates tens of millions in net profits for the tribe annually. As someone 1/4 Ojibwe, I’ll pretend you’re just ignorant to the fact that the casino...

Re: RIP 89X

The fact that they’re both flipping at the same time makes me wonder if part of the plan is to merge the formats- Perhaps a rebranded Alternative format on 93.9? A rebroadcast of Virgin radio makes sense. Maybe even a Hot AC in the vein of CHUM-FM in Toronto. Same for an FM simulcast of CKWW. I work...

89X and 93.9 will continue to bore audiences everywhere but will trudge along.
Well, one or both of these stations will be boring their small audiences with a different format come tomorrow.

Re: CD 102.5 Columbus

So far, it sounds pretty gold-heavy, even compared to iHeart “Alt” stations. This will be iHeart’s FOURTH attempt at Alternative in Columbus (Radio and X on 106.7 and X and Alt on 105.7). They all attained low to mid 2 shares, though I remember it getting low-mid 3s in 2012-13 when the format sounde...

He’s also a Jew. I’m sort of surprised the media isn’t hyping him as the first Jew to hold this position.

Wow! It looks as though Trump is gonna take every swing state except for AZ. I was expecting a much closer result, either way!
