Re: WSYM Hiring It's Own News Staff

I watched Fox 17 this morning when visiting my folks and observed no slippage in on-air quality. If anything, the product looked just a bit better than when I last saw it (early October). What does baffle me a bit regarding Scripps starting up a newsroom at WSYM is why didn't they do so earlier this...

10 MBPS /10 MBPS Verizon
$40 a month seems pricy for just 10 mbps.

Re: Get Matt Patricha fired!!

Adrian Peterson is completely washed up. If you need a guy to power through a pile of defenders for maybe a yard to at most a yard and a half, he's capable. Otherwise, he's useless. The speed is gone. The field perception is gone. If we're talking strictly on-the-field performance, your list is a ve...

95.3 in Grand Rapids has apparently switched to Real Oldies

The translation of 88.5 WGVU-FM's primary signal on 95.3 FM (translator located near US 131 between 28th St & Burton) evidently was very short lived. Today, while driving back home, I heard Real Oldies - with not so great audio - being relayed on 95.3 FM as opposed to WGVU-FM HD1's programming. My g...

Lions made Houston's last place defense look incredible yesterday, LOL.

Nice pass by Stafford straight into the hands of J.J. Watt. WTF was Stafford thinking?

Re: The Breeze Drifts Away

The data would likely be for 2019, and new stations regardless of ratings success generally bill poorly in year one.

In any event, I will see what I can find tomorrow.

Re: Mike Shirkey is right!!!

Lansing and East Lansing combined maybe have 75,000 registered voters. They are indeed dark blue, but the 8th district overall used to be considered a fairly red district. Oakland County used to be pretty reliably Republican. Not anymore. My point is this - the GOP performance in Oakland County was ...

Re: 104.3 WOMC playlist tweak

That's right - they are playing more classic AC material (Elton John, for example) and less in the way of harder edged classic rock (AC/DC, Guns 'N Roses, Motley Crue). They also seem to be leaning into 90's era Modern AC more heavily than before.

Re: 104.3 WOMC playlist tweak

I agree with Steve; there has been a definite playlist tweak at WOMC within the past week and they are definitely skewing more AC-ish.

Fox 17 in Grand Rapids, Fox 66 in Flint, Fox Local 32 in Cadillac are all bad.
Is Scripps running WXMI into the ground?

Re: Trains from AA to Traverse City?

Only 22% of visitors to Vail and Aspen arrive by car.
Many visitors to Traverse City are from Michigan.

Visitors to those two resort towns in Colorado come from all over the country if not the world.

Bad comparison.

Mike Shirkey is right!!!

He hit the nail squarely on the head: “Wayne County didn’t determine the outcome for the presidential race in Michigan. It was Kent County and Oakland County that did,” Shirkey said, referring to the Grand Rapids area and the suburbs north of Detroit. They swung more toward Biden and away from Trump...
