Re: 1660 Kalamazoo "The Fan" flips to Urban Format

Don't understand this at all. Guessing maybe the licensing agreements with the various sports talk shows and networks was up and they didn't want to renew? And honestly, I listened to most of them on satellite anyways. And while H*** isn't always my cup of tea, it was nice to have local talk in the...

Who's it going to hurt more? Townsquare or Midwest?

Why Midwest hasn’t flipped one of their garbage frequencies and taken on KFR is baffling. Just match them song for song, lean it slightly rhythmic and KFR is done.
I agree. Don't they have that CHR is GB that's top of the ratings?

If a station stunts in woods, and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

Also, the PD for their country station is handling their rhythm ac? Huh.

Re: K'zoo / MKG / BC - Spring '19 Nielsens

About Jack: have they even done anything to promote it? When I was out there, I didn't see any billboards or any sort of advertising about the station. You'd think they'd want to promote the hell out of it... It's a shame, because I think the station sounds pretty damn good. Sent from my Pixel 3a X...

Re: They cannot fill this position in Lansing...

Looks like the previous Brand Manager (Joe C.) Jumped ship to become an OM for a cluster down in Iowa. Must be really bad in that office to want to move to Iowa.

So, taking into account what you guys said, We're down to WKZO and WIBM as the last two standing.

Re: Longest Tigers Affiliate?

So, this is what my digging has found. First tigers game was broadcast on WWJ in 1927. Ty Tyson was the announcer. That fact is well known. The Wikipedia article on tiger announcers actually lists two announcers starting in 1934. Harry Heilmann shows up. I googled his name and the Tigers and found o...

Re: WKZO nighttime signal

Being in one of the nighttime nulls and trying to listen to the tigers on 590, I can confirm that they are back on the directional.

Longest Tigers Affiliate?

I tuned into WKZO to listen to the Tigers game, and I heard them talk about how they have been broadcasting the Tigers for over 50 years. So, being the history buff, I wondered if there was anybody who's been doing it for longer. I know that Fetzer owned the Tigers and WKZO in the 50s, but I think t...

Re: Fall 2018 Nielsen Audio #'s for Kalamazoo

Well it looks like WKZO lives and dies with the Tigers. WVFM also dropped in BC. I wonder what their morning drive time numbers are...

And I hope that this book kills the Christmas music push. I used Pandora way to much this last couple of months.

Re: WBBL gone

Wait, they are calling the new sports stations "The Ticket"? I wonder if they talked to Entercom before hand. Because didn't Midwest get into trouble with when they tried to take WQTX back to "The Ticket" and instead called it "The Team"?

Could 106.5 be flipping formats after the holidays?
Oh, so close. I just heard WZOX switch to Jack FM. That makes it now 5 formats since Midwest bought the station?
