Gray(WILX) purchases WLNM-LD

Looks like Gray is growing their brand in Lansing, purchasing Tri-State Christian TV's low power WLNM, Channel 27:

Agreement permits Tri-State ro program one of the WLNM sub-channels.

Re: Soccer coming to WMYD 20

I may be wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised if the team was paying for the airtime. I have the impression they might have money to burn.

Re: How to fix CNN

The cable news business today is not about news, just opinion and sensationalism. CNN today was not the era of Ted Turner...and thats very unfortunate. CNN, back in its infancy, wasn't always exciting. Lots of time it was repeating the same, sometimes boring headlines over and over. Then they'd str...

Interlochen temporarily using WSRJ 105.5

Looks like 105.5 is back on the air, helping Interlochen Public Radio restore its classic music programming to much of the region while WIAA resolves their antenna issues.

Re: Fm translators

Been a while since anyone's mentioned anything about this. A query of the FCC database indicates there are no currently pending FM translator applications related to Lansing. Only active app appears to be an FM translator for WJML in Petoskey. Wonder if the applications were either withdrawn or wip...

Re: FCC repack

Now that the 17th is past, how are you all receiving WSYM and WLAJ and WLNS? WSYM is on a temporary antenna, but are expecting to be all done this week I am told. In Lansing, WLAJ/WLNS and WKAR are both solid, even though my indoor directional antenna is not pointed in their direction. With the ant...

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2019

I don't know what this license is for exactly, but did anyone notice this on it: "This license expires 3:00 a.m. local time, March 08, 2020." That's just over 2 months from now!

Re: Cuts at Beasley Detroit

What a shame. Anne was there for so long, it seemed. I agree that Wheelz needs to pick her up ASAP. Only question is, what timeslot would they put her in? Don't count on it anytime soon. Usually a decent severance package is tied to a non-compete for a period of time. Might have already been in the...

Re: Cuts at Beasley Detroit

In what crazy, fucked up world how does a company fire the PD who has brought your station (November 2019 PPM) ratings #1 18-34 Adults, #1 18-49 Adults and #1 25-54 Adults?
