Re: Can You Tell Me Before Friday Night...

Spot on handbanana! My Spartan work buddy couldn’t recall if at least one or two hoops games were off 107.3 FM & only on AM before Cumulus got pressed hard from East Lansing and/or Tieman’s group to honor the expectation of having the full coverage area that 107.3 affords. I’ll dare to guess that Ti...

Re: Can You Tell Me Before Friday Night...

MSU sports cancelled their deal with Cumulus after they dumped sports. They're now a part of iHeartRadio. I imagine ESPN 96.1 or the Brew on 101.3 would be where it lands. Unless perhaps WOOD would run the games when there's no UM conflict. Hi All, Bret on the WOOD 1300 morning show has been toutin...

Re: WHTS 105.3 FM morning show

Sorry to be meticulous, but isn't the release noting that the morning show changes will be on WHTS 105.3 FM?

Seems like Ms. Gronda led with the mention of WKLQ, even though every other sentence was about 105.3.

Would an edit to this topic heading be in order?

Re: Now we know where WQAN was broadcasting from!

FCC today approved the low power from the usual WQAN tower, but denied the STA for the WLDR stick.

Naughty, naughty.

Re: The Ticket West Michigan

I was out of town for 3 months. When did 106.1 go back to sports talk? Today I heard Jim Rome then Simonson talking about his drive time show on 1340 AM and 106.1. Hi OneBigFan, Since GR's 106.1 FM went live in early March 2019, it's been all sports. It's an "FM Translator" from 1340 AM. (So a low ...

Re: Rescan WEYI 25

25 comes in way better. 46 is about the same. 5 is weaker, but it's no big loss. Hi All, I'll plagiarize my own posting on another site as a reply here, as (virtual) channels 5, 49, and perhaps 46 aren't concluded with construction efforts: In watching the recent FCC filings, some of your area's re...

Re: TV RF Channel Changes

You're welcome Nelson, albeit very belatedly! A bit of the above information in the thread has changed, but not much: These three full-power non-repack station ERP increases remain pending FCC approval: WWTV RF 9; WGTU RF 29; and WFQX RF 32. WFQX is still not back broadcasting on RF 32 after the fir...

Approved! As of yesterday, the FCC granted both the WLAW and WLAV Construction Permit applications. So WLAW will go to that small tower that MWmetalhead summarized as, "...the 97.5 MHz signal is really going to turn into one big pile...".

Re: WLAV Tower Relocation -- filings today

Well, now we know "the rest of the story". This morning's filings from Cumulus for both WLAW 97.5 FM and WLAV 96.9 FM advise of their game-plan, with notation that both are contingent on the other being approved. My layperson read of the documents seem to indicate: * WLAW's broadcast will move to a ...

106.1 FM on the air right now

I can confirm that 106.1 FM is on the air right now. Jim Rome is talking NHL. I missed the top of the hour ID. Solid reception on my car’s radio at 68th St. & 131. Is it geeky that I was catching up over lunch on mibuzzboard postings, saw this tread being bumped, & could offer real-time status info....

Re: WATT

No, the Watt Motel has been gone for decades. Although, perhaps you're thinking of the resort complex that is across the street (Mackinaw Trail) from the WATT studios. It lives on as Evergreen Resort, as the McGuire family sold it off only a few years ago. Watt Motel was actually east of the towers,...
