Re: Sean Baligian?

You can join me in my monthly quest to beg Cumulus (or whoever ends up owning it) to flip 93.1 to sports. They have the Lions and Michigan State broadcasting rights can could get University of Michigan over the next couple of years to add to it. There are solid personalities out there, like Baligia...

Re: The Neilsen #13 Detroit September PPM

Exactly how bad does it have to get ratings and billing wise before Cume-less dumps GNASH-FM? What does rock bottom look like before they either change formats or rebrand the station?

Re: Sean Baligian?

New member here. Excited to join y'all. Why did 1130 drop Sean's show? No local sports show in Detroit morning drive is a shame. I don't count 97.1 Also where can you find Sean on Iheart.

Re: It's official - 105.9 Kiss is now owned by Beasley

99.9 MHz has been broadcasting nothing but dead air ever since Beasley took over. The Praise Network's ratings have dropped by more than 60 percent over the past several months. I think listeners are getting fed up with the unreliable reception and the even worse sounding audio fidelity. Interestin...

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

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

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