Re: Ingredients for a morning news show

CBS This Morning, when they first relaunched the show with Charlie Rose, Gayle King, and Norah O'Donnell had the best approach with a more hard-news angle to their morning show. I'm tired of hearing about the best back-to-school recipes or what some celebrity did last week, which is what you get fro...

Re: Source: Cumulus Detroit is for sale...

If Entercom acquired 106.7 would it be a dumb move for them to put Wheelz on 98.7 and the Breeze on 106.7?

Re: The WLLZ Fix List.

Does the Program Director actually have any say in what artists and songs are added to the station or is it all just a pre-programmed, corporate selected, premium choice playlist? It seems like the latter to me for sure.

Re: WJR hits another all-time low and takes a big plunge from last month's already terrible numbers!

So are we stuck with Nash-FM until Cumulus decides to divest itself from the Detroit market? Is there no hope for a re-brand with new imagining and a live morning show or a new music format (dance hits of the 80's/90's, rhythmic CHR, a return of the old WDRQ)?

Re: Big changes in just released June ratings survey; WJR hits all-time record low

We are constantly told by the far right in this country that they are the silent majority and that here in Michigan, Trump is sure to win again. Well, if they are a majority, they sure aren't tuning into WJR and Pills Limbaugh or No Degree Hannity all that often.

Re: Source: Cumulus Detroit is for sale...

If WJR were sold to Entercom and 93.1 and 96.3 were sold elsewhere could the Lions end up back on the Ticket defacto through the sale or would the team have the right to block that?

Re: Source: Cumulus Detroit is for sale...

If Cumulus is selling their stations how do the Lions and MSU Football/Basketball broadcast rights work out? Would those be sold along with one or more of the stations?

Re: 93.1 DRQ

93.1 flipping to sports would be AMAZING! However, it must have at least these three things to be successful . . .

1. A live and local morning drive
2. No Ryan Ermani hosting a weekday show
3. Some fresh on-air talent that aren't just rehashes of the past

Will the Ann Arbor cluster be sold with Detroit or is Cume-less planning to hold onto those stations?

Why are we blaming Doug for the WLLZ playlist when Casey is the PD and corporate makes them use a premium choice playlist?

Re: My 2 Cents on WLLZ

Is Fake Wheelz widening their playlist beyond what corporate approves because the last few days I have heard several songs in the mix that they haven't played previously. Also, it wasn't a deep track weekend to my knowledge. Some of the songs in the mix include . . . War Pigs - Black Sabbath Tom Saw...

Re: WCSX

How long has WCSX been playing Collective Soul, Candlebox, and Red Hot Chilli Peppers? They played all three of those artists today. Are they trying to tweak their imaging towards more of what WLLZ is playing? If so, is that a big mistake on their part?
