Re: Despite Derision Over Demos And An Uncertain Future-WRME Lives!

Not their best numbers ever but certainly impressive nonetheless. They've been in the mid 3's before. The format bills less than $2 million in annual revenue, which places it near last place among Chicago's FM stations. However, that amount of revenue might be adequate to make the station profitable...

Re: WVFM got JACKED up!

I'll also mention that with WKFR now doing pure CHR/Pop, the new Hits 96.5 doesn't stand a chance in hell of earning decent ratings.

KFR will wipe the floor clean with them.

96.5's stationality screams "low budget."

That sucks. I pass along my condolences to his friends and past & present colleagues. I know he worked at WMRR for a number of years before heading up north.

Re: WVFM got JACKED up!

WKFR now plays the Townsquare equivalent of Premium Choice - their playlist is virtually identical to WJIM-FM's song for song. Interesting! Is that the case in all dayparts? If so, that represents a significant shift for WKFR, as for the past several years, the station was very much in the Hot AC l...

Re: Rashida Tlaib is an embarrassment to the state of Michigan

Tlaib is either bat-shit crazy (very, very possible) or she actually does not believe what she said and simply made a calculated move to rally her far left base to raise campaign cash.

Either way, her words are completely irresponsible and absurd.

Re: Putting a ribbon on a turd in LA

100% agree with thatonedude.

I'm sure the name was the brainchild of Michael Martin, whose lineage includes a CHR/Pop station of the same name in San Francisco.

Re: Another Black Eye For The F.B.I.

The Indiana law needs more teeth for sure, but Bryce is completely correct that the FBI dropped the ball.

I guess they are only interested in white collar criminals and drug lords. It's unacceptable, and FBI leadership needs to be held accountable.

Re: Adam Toledo shooting

this one at least for me isn't an example of a cop just going up and murdering someone who was minding their own business. The Dallas example was a perfect example. The fact you choose to disregard it because the officer in question was "off the clock" is ridiculous. Recall, that this is what you r...

Re: Adam Toledo shooting

As she should've been!

Example two: Australian woman in Minneapolis (Justine Damond) calls cops for help. Just witnessed assault and battery outside. Cops arrive. The responding officer shoots and kills her.

Re: Adam Toledo shooting

To answer bmw's early query - that's an easy question to answer. The dumb bitch cop in Dallas, TX who illegally entered the wrong apartment after ending her shift, thinking it was her own, and then murdering the resident inside. She killed a young man who was remarkably kind and embarking on a profe...

Re: Black Diamond Broadcast Group has filed a $500,000 deal to buy hot AC WCFX, Clare, MI (95.3)

The stationality on WCFX - other than a recent change in V/O artists - certainly sounds a lot like it did twenty years ago. $500k seems a little pricey to me. Mount Pleasant isn't quite as over-radioed as a place such as Marquette or Traverse City, but for a signal whose 60 dBu only reaches 150,000 ...

Re: We live in fame or go down in flame................

Did 1340 have any semblance of traction when it flipped to Solid Gold for a few years in the 80s?

Of course, the instant 93.7 flipped to Classic Hits, I suspect the viability of KOOL 1340 was destroyed.
