Re: Iheart Disloctation

The COL is little more than legalese, as far as anyone’s concerned. The vast majority of people in the market consider KISS FM a Cleveland station. If your station was located a little outside the market, but put a full signal over the larger metro, wouldn’t you want to claim that market and the inc...

Re: Iheart Disloctation

Simple. WAKS puts a great signal over virtually the entire Cleveland market. There is WAY more money to be made in Cleveland than Akron, so if they can market it as a Cleveland station, that is what they’ll do. By Cleveland’s hit music station, they mean for the people of (Greater) Cleveland, not th...

Re: The End of 107.3 The Wave Cleveland

RCRG stopped subscribing in Cleveland about five years ago, but when they did, the Wave got between 1.5 and 2.0 6+. Given the target demo for Smooth Jazz, I can’t imagine the 25-54 was anything above a 1.0. The only good thing I can think of relating to this is that if numbers stall out, they could ...

Re: The End of 107.3 The Wave Cleveland

Cities 97 in Minneapolis gets decent ratings, but other than that, Modern AC has flopped everywhere it’s been tried in the last decade or so. This sounds a lot like SiriusXM’s The Pulse. Will be interesting to see how long this lasts.

Well, the secret to the “Jeny” will be revealed between 10 and 11 tomorrow. If this is indeed link to the 107.3 format, we’ll have an answer then!

Re: The End of 107.3 The Wave Cleveland

Well, it’s a simulcast of WQMX. At least for now. Radio insight believes this is temporary, so I guess we’ll see how long it lasts.

Re: The End of 107.3 The Wave Cleveland

Ahh, yes I forgot all about GKB flipping their Country station in Milwaukee to ESPN. Mr. Karmazin loves his ESPN, for better or for worse. I could’ve sworn C-Bus had another Country station....well, maybe Saga should be seeing a Yuuuuuge format hole then! Rewind has horrible ratings anymore. I still...

Re: The End of 107.3 The Wave Cleveland

My guesses are either Country of some form or Soft AC. While WQMX puts a nice signal into the western part of the market (I don’t travel much into the East parts anymore so no idea there), Cleveland is the only PPMmarket in the Great Lakes region that doesn’t have two Country stations that specially...

Re: End of The Road for WBAI 99.5fm NYC pt 2

Per WBAI’s Twitter, Pacifica ‘s Board has agreed to restore the station to its local programming. Of course, Pacifica leadership claims that the vote is not legal. What a (not surprising) mess as this drags on. No matter how bleak things look for WBAI, I will never consider them dead or dying until ...

Re: End of The Road for WBAI 99.5fm NYC pt 2

Yup. Pacifica even took out the EAS equipment, leaving the WBAI staff no way to (legally) run the station themselves. It’s amazing how dysfunctional the relationship between Pacifica and WBAI has been for YEARS and they’re both somehow alive. It’s as if the same business ineptitude that has placed t...

Re: KFOG Bites The Dust

Meh. KFOG was seeing eroding ratings as a AAA even before going the “Music Matters” route in 2016 and going full-blown Alt last year. The execution of the format never did anything for me, though Cumulus has done a great job with AAA in Ann Arbor. Simply put, KNBR had to go to FM. KGMZ was gaining o...

Re: New Rock Station in Indianapolis

I'm going to really enjoy seeing this station humiliate Alt 103.3 in the ratings in the coming months. Only took two books for X to top Alt in the books! Indy has needed a good hard rock station for years! Overall, the station sounds really good. My only complaint is that their current/recurrent li...

Re: 106.5 Toledo

Although I still always wonder why they bothered heavily tweaking the Zone's format from alternative to (shitty off the bird) active rock for like a month before 1470 was shut down and the talk shows moved onto 100.7. It was a pretty odd move. Unless Cumulus really wasn’t going to move the talk for...
