Re: Ken Evans Out at 105.3

I wonder if Cume-U-Less is going to pipe in The Bert Show?

If so, 105.3 is absolutely doomed, and Cumulus has given up attempting to compete with SNX.

Re: AAA - can it still work in Detroit?

WKLQ is largely modeled after Ann Arbor's 107One, which has been around much longer and can be heard across many of Detroit's western suburbs (and even some downriver suburbs). The AAA format is best reserved for non-commercial frequencies in the immediate Detroit area. Would be nice to see WDET int...

Re: 2019 Detroit Lions

I realize Stafford hasn't played yet - but I'm going to make season prediction here & now anyway!

5 - 11.

I also will predict that Stafford will have a lousy year and that the Lions running game will be atrocious.

Every administration has had thugs and liars.
Not sure I agree with the "thugs" part, but I definitely agree about the liars part!

Re: Make no mistake about it - the media is rooting for a recession

I'm a straight white Christian man and have NEVER been "held down by the system." My pay is terrific. I periodically get calls from other companies trying to recruit me. Perhaps those being "held back" have poor social skills or simply do not stand out with regard to job performance? Those who feel ...

Why on earth is this vile Maxwell woman not already in federal custody awaiting trial ?!?!

The fact she remains a FREE WOMAN is absolutely sickening!!!

Re: Make no mistake about it - the media is rooting for a recession

It's the inverted yield curve and the tariffs largely responsible. Period. MW is also correct about cash flow leverage multiples and the labor pool. Next thing to watch for is falling corporate earnings. The Trump tax cut has already been played out. In essence it was a one-off shot that is no long...

Re: K'zoo / MKG / BC - Spring '19 Nielsens

Radio does a terrible job promoting itself and its own brands.

If I were an outside business - especially a local business - looking for proper marketing, I don't know why on earth I'd trust radio to do that job for me. Radio's incompetence at marketing itself is a bad reflection on the industry.

Re: The WLLZ Fix List.

Saturday is the only day of the week they do as you say. Generally, all I hear is a bunch of stuff WRIF has played into the ground over the past 25 years mixed with a bunch of stuff WCSX has played into the ground over the past 25 years - with a surprising lack of overall artist variety. Once in a w...

Re: CICO-32 in Windsor

WTVS should consider the same approach. They don't need PBS kids in HD. Flip it to 480i and take the main signal to 720p. Add about 4 subchannels that bring them revenue. Then they won't have to beg for money as much as they do. I disagree. Adding extra channels would largely cannibalize their exis...

Re: WPON testing again ?

I may have been mistaken, fuzzpower.

Looks like WCXI is broadcasting with 250 watts non-directional from Milford Twp. under STA.
