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...

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

Re: Three CBS-Owned CW Stations Add Nightly News

I hear all the time that there just isn't the ratings and revenue share in Detroit for a fourth news station. If they actually spent real money and tried to bring in a local news team, lets say for argument sake people like Emery King, Christy McDonald, Ron Lewis, Kevin Deitz, Chuck Gadica, etc. and...

Re: Three CBS-Owned CW Stations Add Nightly News

So the return of Emery King to local news has a zero percent chance at happening with this?

Re: Three CBS-Owned CW Stations Add Nightly News

What are the odds that Emery King makes a comeback for this? Also, what are the odds we get Scott Lewis, Steve Wilson, ML Elrick and a team of real investigative reporters on the CW 50 news team? Zero or less than zero?

Re: NOheart cuts have begun

It looks like iHeartlessMedia has removed the DJ profiles from all of their websites, which means they are likely preparing for massive cuts here locally.
