Re: Iheart Disloctation

Ok, can WNCI use the "Chillicothe's #1 hit music channel?" To me, there is no logic. And it's not number 1. Like I said too many prefer Adult CHR on Q104 instead.

Re: 13.6 and .7

Noticed last night a color test pattern with WTVG, old style tv font from 1984, in the middle on 13.6. WXN moved to 13.7.

Also, the complete listings for 13.6 are on 13abc.com already. Was told they were there for a few weeks.

Re: 13.6 and .7

Weird that its the same program cause TitanTV and Rabbit ears listings say that 13.6 is "Dabl" but its not what is on the channel. I am just glad they didn't squeeze the bits out of MeTV. Flintstones looked respectable last night, lets hope it stays that way. They can go alittle further down on WXN...

Re: 13.6 and .7

There is now a 13.7 tonight. It is airing WXN. So 13.6 and 13.7 are both WXN for now.

Re: Iheart Disloctation

WAKS has had weak ratings and a seemingly skimpy budget forever; they have long been the red-headed step child of iFart's Cleveland cluster. My ex, who still lives in Lakewood says that he hears that 96.5 and 98.5 (Munroe Falls) both have way too many spots. I talked with a friend in Valley View, a...

Re: Iheart Disloctation

In Cleveland word is all but one gone from CHR WAKS/CLE. Chuck.... did something happen that the WAKS COL is no longer Akron? As far as I know, they're still licensed to Akron, but they don't act like an Akron station (they're " Cleveland 's #1 Hit Music Station"). Thought so. That's like saying an...

All this technology has been in existence since the early 90's. iHeart is simply treating medium markets like small markets now.
That would be great... but it's even the big markets. Did you see all the names fired in big cities?

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

iHeart just had a slaughterhouse 5 day; will Cumulus be next? Local on-air talent going, going, gone. If it ain't local, nobody will listen. I have a radio diary this week (from last Thursday) and there isn't a whole lot of local stations being listed, a whole lot more from elsewhere, like WSM Nash...

Re: Iheart Disloctation

WNDE Indy dumped their afternoon show, meaning no local programming left. 1430 canned their only local show last year. Three sports stations in that town, with only 1070 having any sort of Indy sports talk. The afternoon team in Indy should have offered to buy that time slot, and continued with the...

Re: Iheart Disloctation

Allot of you remember Nick Gnau as GM of Cumulus Toledo. He will head up the "Community" platform for iHeart, with a few others.

Schedule portions of the Toledo cluster are all missing/blank. No names listed. Seems that the "Schedule" links are gone too.

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

One thing we need to keep in mind... To Cumulus, ratings mean nothing. Cash does. Format will not change. Cumulus refuses still today that higher ratings say "ching ching!" Yes, old radio will never come back. There is no such thing as local service. No local decisions. Cookie cutter radio is here t...

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

Cumulus doesn't know how to fix failing stations in non-PPM markets, and they've had mixed results in doing so in PPM markets. Since taking over WZPL in Indy, the ratings have sunk. Also, Mix 107.9 is only starting to recover after suffering the Cumulus plunge (and is still performing below pre-Cum...

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

Yet another example of how unimportant to the 25-54 P1's+ Q105 seems to be.... Guess the rap song! Yes, the studio mates engaged the audience by themselves guessing urban and rap songs today. BTW, music they do not air. Woke up Saturday morning at 7:16 am to this tripe. But as you all know, that was...
