Re: Canned national programming coming to WYCD

What a trainwreck the former CBS radio portfolio has become in Detroit between WOMC, WYCD, and WWJ. WOMC and WYCD were two of the strongest stations for years and had great, live and local talent and airstaffs that have now been stripped down to the bone. That was always one of CBS Radio's biggest s...

Re: 97.1

Matt Dery seems like another obvious choice given his connection to Stoney.

Re: 97.1

I'd like to see one of Herman Moore (former Lions WR), Sean Baligian, Jordan Strack from WTOL TV in Toledo, Tony Paul or Kyle Mienke from MLive get consideration for the shift. Matt Dery used to have Kyle Meinke on Detroit Sports 105.1 for Lions roundtables and I always thought Kyle sounded good on ...

Re: The "New" Mike Valenti Show on 97.1

Why not give Tony Ortiz a shot at being a host/co-host? I don't know how well Ortiz would pair up with Valenti given his softer, less aggressive personality. That said, Ortiz is certainly better than some of the dopes currently on the station and in the past. You're telling me Ortiz would be worse t...

Re: CSX back to #1

What caused the bounce back for 99-5 'YCD? Is this a normal summertime bounce due to people listening to country more in the summer?

Re: Nielsen May 2020

Other than being cheap and not wanting to pay the guy, why wouldn't you want someone like Chuck Edwards if you're the PD at 93.1? Chuck Edwards and the late Linda Lee were one of the top rated afternoon drive shows for over a decade in this market. Additionally, until recently, I believe Chuck was p...

Re: Nielsen May 2020

Cume is still down a good 35% to 45% from normal levels for most FM stations. 97.1 The Ticket is down about 50% from normal. Ditto 104.3. 93.1's AQH share has surged over the past couple surveys. Their 3.9 is the all-time best for 93.1 as a country outlet. Will be interesting to see if that trend h...

Re: WXYZ branding

I strongly dislike how "7 ABC" sounds. Completely unnatural. "Channel 7" and plain old "7" sounds just fine to me. Get rid of the miliquetoast anchors behind the desk (reassign them to other roles), devote a lot of resources to hard news & investigative reporting, hire Charlie Le Duff and Murray Fe...

MW, do you think there's any chance he ends up at Wheelz to replace Casey?

Re: Screaming Scott blown out at the RIF.

Paging iHeart Radio Detroit Market Manager Nick Gnau, Doug Podell and anyone at WLLZ. Screamin' Scott should be on the WLLZ airstaff ASAP working 7-12pm. Move Casey to middays and put Trudi Daniels on in the mornings with Bill. If WLLZ does not bring on Screamin' Scott on board that's going to be a ...

Re: Gnash FM 93.1 to rebrand - probably on or near February 22

If WLLZ can be brought back after over 25 years to a different spot of the dial there is no reason to think Cumulus can bring back the W4 Country brand to Detroit. The W4 brand that was around longer in Detroit than Wheelz was. No reason either a simulcast could happen or one station is branded WFOR...

Re: Gnash FM 93.1 to rebrand - probably on or near February 22

Why not brand it 93-1 W4 Country and bring Bubba over to do mornings with someone like Roxanne or a Renee Vitale?
