FOX 17’s Darren Cunningham to Detroit

A little fresh content for the board... Last week, when the Governor announced the K-12 rest of the year closure, WXMI did a sidebar after Darren Cunningham’s live report, wishing him farewell. Cunningham was their long-serving “Problem Solver” reporter, probably most impactful on a piece regarding ...

Re: Longtime Detroit Radio, TV Host Bob Allison Dies At 87

I can’t recall the particular service that Bob was pitching, but 40 years ago, or so, an ad would run in the Tri-Cities where he would allude to “my radio program” with no graphic acknowledgement to who he was, or where his program could be heard. Regardless, he was smooth and engaging, even in that...

Re: WLAV Tower Relocation - new update 7/29

I was surprised how well the Delco held "Rewind 99.1" on my travels south, Tuesday. It was listenable down to the Howard City exit, about six miles further south than my Prius' reception. LAV presented very similar signal parameters to what I had noticed on Monday. Still no meat on the bone, funny-w...

Bill was rattling the cage about changes coming on social media on Monday and posted a picture with his new on-air partner today. Best of luck to them.

Re: WLAV Tower Relocation - new update 7/29

Got a little distracted by car trouble last evening, here's my take on LAV's signal range. In the city of Big Rapids, Ferris State campus area, not really listenable. Knew it was LAV, my RDS wasn't saying so. Several miles south, where Old 131 approaches the Muskegon River, patchy, stereo light flas...

Re: WLAV Tower Relocation - new update 7/29

You will have a report regarding Big Rapids reception on 96.9 in a matter of hours. I remember working as a kid in Cadillac, in the days of Aris and Prudence and shows like Clambake and Music to Watch Cartoons By, where you could pull LAV when you came down 131 to Reed City, and over north of Mount ...

Re: Jay Allen has cancer

On MLive just now, Jay passed away earlier today.

God Rest and Welcome his soul. I remember him doing Hoops public address in Van Andel 20 years ago, where he sounded great on that job. Wish I had heard him at the task at Comerica.

Re: 2020 predictions

You should have called for the iHeart Staff Ax, and your credibility needle would have made a Super Jump.

Not picking on any of the presumptions you have made above, just a bit of gallows humor from someone who spent 14 years in a Clear Channel/iHeart newsroom, until that blade caught me.

Michelle DeSelms Takes the Evil Gary Cooper Job at WOODTV...

She will be the Community Strategy Manager, a couple of years after her departure from WXMI.

Aguirre-Cooper left for Miami and Univison in December, and there's a title change with the new hire, as EAC was the Community Affairs Director.

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

Beaten by "The River." Lordy, sounds like a simple message someone might key-scratch into the door of an 'LAV boss' car, so that the concept finally sinks in. I started tuning in the "Q" in the last month, owing to general boredom with the known quantities elsewhere on the dial. Enjoying most of the...

Re: AM 810 rockford

It is still a slipshod operation, technically, as I can attest to, thanks to listening while on my morning commutes to Big Rapids. Right now, the Prius' antenna is broken and the bleed AM 810 creates across the spectrum is noticeable as I get up by 10 Mile and continue toward the M-57 interchange. I...

Re: Veronica Meadows

Congratulations to Veronica.

She was a pleasant visitor when 9&10 News was seeking story content from my employer. They're running a fine shop from the old Kysor headquarters in Cadillac, with people moving on to Grand Rapids, Detroit via the Tri-Cities and Minneapolis.
