Re: 2020 Presidential Polls

You're 100 percent right, Rate This. I had a brain fart and forgot to adjust both sides of the equation, and I also failed to consider the 270 threshold required to win.

Sorry about that.

I am going to stick with my outcome prediction, however. I think Trump will barely eek out a victory.

Re: WTCM-FM 103.5, etc.

Irresponsible Leveraged Buyout transactions, tone deaf social media strategies, greedy recording industry royalties, and incompetence in the C-suites of certain companies by far have been the most detrimental things. Format changes are a mixed bag.

Re: WTCM-FM 103.5, etc.

Breaking the stations up today doesn't do the current business climate justice. The "business" should be valued, not the "station". This cluster (that includes WCCW-FM and now WKLT-FM) has one engineering staff, one sales department, one back office operation (traffic, billing, etc.) that allows it...

Re: 97.1

What I expect is Entercom to fire 75% of it's air talent in Detroit across the board, including WWJ, which will start broadcasting national news in all dayparts except mornings and afternoons, with part timers cutting in for Traffic and Weather. Expect 97.1 to air national syndication 10am - 2pm an...

Re: 97.1

Yesterday afternoon, the station was airing an Ernie Harwell-era broadcast from the 80's with horrendously poor audio quality.

Re: What The DEMOCRAT PARTY Hath Wrought

The Orion Twp case should be malicious destruction of property + assault.

The example involving your friend, based on the limited info you've provided, sounds like assault as well.

Re: From my Facebook feed today...

You want to know why I don’t wear a mask? Because I have asthma and COPD my doctor says it would complicate my breathing and suggested not to wear one, so because of my medical situation I don’t wear one. The fact you failed to state so in your dozen or so previous posts on the topic and bragged ab...

Re: WCXI 1160 Republican Talk Radio

I tuned in briefly on the 4th, and their network audio was so distorted I tuned out.
Whatever network program has been running in early evening does indeed have horrendous audio.

Re: Whitmer Misses The Mark

A lot of folks in the medical community and the governors of California, Texas and Florida seem to agree millennials are a big problem at the moment. They are not social distancing, they are not wearing masks, they gather in large groups often, and then they visit their parents or grandparents while...

Re: WTCM-FM 103.5, etc.

WTCM-FM: $600,000 to $800,000 today; $1.2 million to $1.6 million once the economy returns to normal. On a good day in a good economy, if the tower site is tossed in free & clear, maybe even upper $1's would be attainable (that'd be a stretch in my eyes). WTCM (AM): $125,000 to $200,000 today; $250,...

Re: 2020 Presidential Polls

Those states represented 46 electoral votes in 2016 and will represent the same number of electoral votes this year. Trump won by 77 electoral votes. He could lose all three of those states PLUS Florida and still have two electoral votes to spare! If I had to make a prediction straight-up this minut...

Re: Booming in from the north

Here's one booming in pretty strongly from the south at the moment:

92.1 WOHF from Bellevue, OH. Confirmed via RDS. Heard Motley Crue "Smokin' in the Boys Room" moments ago.

Re: Media Driven Racial Hostility

They all do. Fox News included.

TV news no longer exists to inform; it exists to dramatize and create conflict.
