Re: Kevin Sanderson

He's been doing morning traffic reports on Fox 2 News for many years (aurally only; he doesn't appear on camera). I believe he took over those duties the moment Rhonda Walker bolted for WDIV. And, yes, on the radio around here - he's spent appreciable time on the airwaves of V98.7, Newsradio 950 WWJ...

Re: Matt Shepard as the new Tiger play-by-play TV voice..

I'm stunned that no nationally renowned play-by-play man wanted the Tigers job! What's not to like about calling games for arguably the worst team in Major League Baseball and working in a "beautiful" city such as Detroit? I thought for sure Lynn Henning and Carlos Monarrez's predictions would come ...

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

Hey - I want more Chris Ilitch sound bites about how great the rebuild is going! :rollin 2-17 over the past 19 games at home. Who the f*ck would pay to see this flaming dumpster fire of a baseball team? No one within that organization knows how to successfully execute a rebuild. Mike Ilitch was gett...

Re: It's finally happened!!!

Why dilute the quality of your own product over something so trivial? Incubus at that time would've been a more important band for 89X to play than for WRIF to play. Brookshaw for quite a while was playing garbage from No Doubt (long after the band abandoned any semblance of being a rock group) and ...

Re: Flint Water trials cancelled

I don't believe MDEQ told them not too. The MDEQ advised local officials that additives were not necessary, that only "monitoring" for a period of six months was required. That has been a highly documented fact. Read all the articles about the MDEQ's (non)-understanding of the federal lead & copper...

Re: Flint Water trials cancelled

Yes, a lot of them do think water should be free. But suburbanites and Flintites aren't the ones subsidizing non-payment of those bills from Detroit; other Detroit residents are the ones subsidizing the delinquencies of their fellow Detroit residents.

Re: Flint Water trials cancelled

Forgetting to add anti-corrosive agents was due to a boneheaded consultant firm. Had they added non-corrosives there would have been no story. But by then damage was done and the switch back to Detroit water supply was only way to gain public trust again. You are half right. Yes - proper non-corros...

97.3 Grand Rapids

Evidently, the LPFM once known as "97.3 The Beat" is now called "97.3 The Heat." Longtime WJNZ and WYGR personality Robert S. Womack is now General Manager of the new 97.3. His daily "Pulse of the City" radio show, long heard on the two aforementioned stations, is now found on 97.3. https://973thehe...

Re: Flint Water trials cancelled

Would you at least agree that the charges were bullshit? Want to investigate? Fine. The real culprit was decades of local mismanagement in Flint. Most of the charges were warranted, in my opinion. Some of the involuntary manslaughter charges may have been an overreach. The Judge who presided over t...

Re: It's finally happened!!!

:razz Thanks, TC Talks. Mega - they ditched WRIF for (the now defunct) WRZX in Indianapolis, not 89X. I am 100% certain of my recollection of that fact. X103 at the time did a massive annual concert at the speedway. Sirius XM plays material from the S.C.I.E.N.C.E. album on a regular basis. Yet anoth...

It's finally happened!!!

Within the past week or two, WRIF has added multiple songs from the band Incubus into rotation. :) I like most songs by Incubus, so I'm rather pleased by this development! I believe this marks the first time in many years WRIF has played the band. There was an embargo on Incubus airplay for what mus...

Re: May 2019 ratings

Wow - just a few short days after I bitch about how lame & lifeless 93.1's voiceover guy sounds, I randomly heard a V/O cut for some sort of concert ticket giveaway from a different V/O guy than the usual one. Sounds somewhat like former Grand Rapids radio personality Dave Justus (who worked at WGRD...

Re: 106.5 Toledo

The Zone should've never been dropped from 106.5; that brand drew decent ratings given 106.5's signal limitations.
