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.

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

Comeback presumes some previous level of ascendancy. I had a feeling it was time bought on The Patriot, but, I appreciate the delineation. I do remember reading about RC's market presence in the Free Press sports section, 40 years ago. He did predate Frank Beckmann on WJR's Sportswrap, if I am remem...

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

Forgive me for not wanting to search through a thread with nearly 1,200 responses, but, where is Cameron buying his time, and can we in the self-torturous realm get a stream of Ron's show? Just in case Advent is also about suffering, prior to a reward, I want to catch some here, this coming weekend ...

Re: Congratulations to WSJM alumnus, Jason Scott

I've heard Jason on the Michigan News Network casts that filter out to affiliates in Ionia and Grand Rapids. Solid as a rock in his delivery, congratulations.

Re: 101.9 wldr

I'm backing up a bit, where comments were made about Fleetwood Mac tunes before the mid 70s, and this is a post to back up "Spare Me A Little Of Your Love" and "Bare Trees," which was the title track of their album in '72. I do remember the days where WLDR and Don Wiitala was carrying TC St. Francis...

Re: Tis the Season

I appreciate knowing this, so I don't try to tune in "The Bay" on my way into Saginaw this Thanksgiving. I can ride Dan and Lomas as I roll past the former Silverdome site, thinking back to Gary Danielson's flat pass one Thanksgiving that LT took in for the day's only touchdown.

Re: The Blarney Stone Broadcasting Legacy

The Leetsville Cafe was their lunchtime show when I was working in the region, mid 1980s.

Terri Ray was there then, and apparently continues now.

Old habits are hard to break, and in time, may become hard to like.

Re: Hoss?

I checked with someone who would know, and the Hoss' work on WTKG ended in 2015, some irreconcilable differences between himself and management, and an attempt to carry on by buying time on WJRW lasted only a short while. Those were some days, though...

Re: Can You Tell Me Before Friday Night...

To update the notion, as the late Joe Falls would do, writing for a small audience, MSU-Illinois is on 101.3 The Brew Saturday, Nov. 9, as Western has become your Bowl-eligible Tuesday night MAC team again next week. Michigan fans sit idle and WOOD carries the middling Griffins.

Re: Find "Waldo" Finster

Living too far away to hear, not satisfied by the Detroit Lions ALERT offered on Facebook that says "will be broadcasted" from this weekend. It's a communications business, with multiple media a constant these days. Endeavor to do it well.
