Re: The End of my Walmart Years

Was in the Troy Walmart on Maple Rd a week ago. Story wasn't very busy. It was reasonably clean. Decent number of checkouts open. So far, so good...right? Not so fast! LOL First check out I go to: creepy old lady holding a kleenex in one hand then cracks open a bottle of Bayer aspirin in the other h...

Re: Just Announced - Chad & Kristy mornings on The Breeze!

Well, that name is better than "The Morning Show" at least. (Cruz & Julia on the now defunct 98.7 Amp Radio.)

The Ticket West Michigan

Is 106.1 ever going to make it to the air?

The random social media geek at Cumulus (Ken Evans?) two weeks ago blamed the "government shutdown."

That said, the CP was granted February 1. Two weeks ago. Is Cumulus simply waiting on a tower crew?

Re: WPLJ - now the home of God.

Entercom has wasted no time in applying for improved facilities for Nash 94.7 in New York. They have submitted an application to move the TX site to the NE side of Newark near East Rutherford, with improved line-of-site to all NYC Burroughs, Westchester County, far SW Connecticut, and western Long I...

Re: Whitmer vs. Fox2

I missed the Fox 2 story. Is it available online? Would like to form my own opinion.

Even Speaker Chatfield harshly rebuked Fox 2 and defended the Governor. It was a very nice gesture on his part.

Re: WPLJ - now the home of God.

Know why Entercom wanted WMAS in Springfield, MA?

Look at the freq on which it broadcasts; mystery solved.

They still have at least one other station with which they need to contend - 94.3 WWSK.

It's official - Chadd and Kristi is 98.7's new morning show.

Excellent choice!

They sounded great during their tryout.

Re: Cumulus stunner - two heritage Hot AC stations in major markets SOLD (note: WDVD not involved)

Excellent post; I cannot disagree with anything you wrote. They'll look to complete their exit from D.C. and New York sooner rather than later, and I agree L.A. is likely next. Will they also deal KRBE in Houston, one of the few heritage CHR stations Jan Jefferies managed not to screw up during his ...

Yup; the DC land deal with Toll Brothers has gone nowhere.

Toll Brothers needed rezoning; the municipality said no.

Re: Elizabeth Warren to run in 2020

Good discussion! Biden is likable, but he's likable in a drinking buddy sense. He's run twice and fared poorly both times. Plus, he is going to be very aged by 2020. I say there is a low chance at best that Biden runs. If he does run, there is minimal chance of him winning, IMO. Dem voters want new ...

Re: Garry Frank Leaving WXMI

Say what you want about Garry, but from a career management standpoint, he's no dummy. That viral video increased his stock significantly. What a great discussion point for an interview.

Fox 4 is a solid station.

I wish him well.

Re: WPLJ - now the home of God.

Actually, 94.7 in NYC gets good ratings for the signal. It only has effective coverage of maybe two thirds of the market. I'd be willing to bet money Entercom finds a way to move the TX site to Manhattan within the next couple years. Biggest underachieving Nash station I can find is 94.1 Cincinnati....

Re: Cumulus stunner - two heritage Hot AC stations in major markets SOLD (note: WDVD not involved)

Have you guys heard K-Love Classics? It's a bottom of the barrel, ultra low budget format. Not at all something designed for a full power major market signal. It's a backfill format and nothing more. I say there is zero chance of EMF purchasing another full power signal here or trading 102.7 (becaus...
