Re: Nielsen audio ratings roundup: WLAV's ratings are at multi-decade RECORD LOW levels! WTNR remains a dumpster fire!

The Ticket has Dan Patrick and Jim Rome but their am signal is so weak / iffy at least on the southeast and south west ends of town I end up streaming. Got spoiled by strong FM signal for years.

Re: WOOD TV's Susan Shaw Switching Shifts

Short term, did NexStar decide to give Shaw a raise and reduce head count or did Marlee Ginter’s departure notice catch management without a replacement?

Re: Very sad news regarding Aris Hampers

Its too bad Hampers had to post about his medical issues because others were creating a false narrative for whtever reasons. Always wondered why he didn't do more voice over work with his distinctive delivery and sense of timing. Wish him well. Many years ago an uncle died when he was 89-90. He had ...

Re: WWMT's Kate Tillotson Leaving Station

No mention of her shoplifting charges? Looks like the m-live reporter simply copied and pasted her goodbye letter. It’s probable the reporter didn’t think misdemeanor charges from an event more than a decade ago that was addressed to the retail establishment (victim), the court’s and her employer’s...

Re: 2018 GR Holiday Radio Ratings?

Star 105.7 and 100.5 The River started November 1 and my wife asked if we could re-assign the car radio buttons at least until after Thanksgiving.

Is it cheaper to switch to the holiday pre-recorded than their regular programming?

Re: Lee Van Ameyde Dies at 66

I was surprised Lee Van Ameyed was just 66. Remember when he came to town to be WZZM’s anchor in 1977. Was aware that he was a diabetic and heard that his overall health had been affected because of his condition. Saw a Go Fund me account had been set up for funeral expenses. Knew WZZM was never a l...

Re: WWMT's Kate Tillotson Leaving Station

My wife watches CBS Morning and sometimes we see the beginning of channel 3's 5 and 11 news. Sinclair has brought in several new faces for WWMT News desk in the last few months. I thought it was a prelude to Sinclair setting up to make some changes. Erica Mokay isn't doing all the morning news updat...

Re: Nexstar in Flap With DIRECTV and AT&T-UVerse

Insomniac question. How did TV stations who get their licenses from the FCC get to charge cable, streaming or satellite services for carrying their signal when anyone in the stations broadcast radius can get it over the air with an antenna? Are the rebroadcast entities inserting their own commercial...

Re: The Ticket West Michigan

I was out of town for 3 months.

When did 106.1 go back to sports talk? Today I heard Jim Rome then Simonson talking about his drive time show on 1340 AM and 106.1.

Re: WBBL gone

Had listened to Rome and Simonson was on after my 3:00 sales call.

He was talking about his "network" and saying they needed the Federal government to get back so they could add an FM signal in GR.

What is available with any power?

Re: WBBL gone

Shep Shower and Shave went on the air in the GR market in early January (around January 7) and Shep will be gone no later than March for Spring pre-season. Matt Shepard may still be the voice of U of M basketball. Mario Impemba was able to be the voice of Oakland basketball and do Tiget broadcasts f...

Re: Spectrum subscribers lose access to WXMI

I have digital antenna and Hulu Live. Between FS1 on Hulu and WXMI on antenna you really only need an internet connection and say good bye to local channel fees.
