WIKY in Evansville, Indiana still broadcasts from the house he grew up in - the house where his dad launched the station from. Overall good guy.

Re: Is radio relevant anymore in a crisis?

On WLXT, we've spent time every morning talking about the latest developments. This morning, we talked to school superintendents about the implications of the Governor's Executive Order. Two Fridays ago (which seems like a long time ago) we spent all morning interviewing experts in every aspect of t...

I'm a little disappointed I wasn't invited back to the big going away shindig today.
That would have cost an extra $12.95.
I don't charge that much... Listening to it now online, interesting choice of songs.

92% is Nielsen stat.

Another company says 72%. I’ll take either.

Re: School closings on local radio

how come adults can't get information about snow conditions and "backroads" just as easily? The answer is, they can. Obviously they can. But why can't people CHOOSE how to get their information? In the same way they can CHOOSE how to get their music... People who choose Spotfily and playlists figur...

Re: School closings on local radio

As one who faces this challenge every snowy morning, let me offer this: School closings are not to tell the average student it's a snow day - they probably already know. But it does give an average listener a general idea of what the world is like outside their house. The idea of news on a music ori...

Re: Gnash FM 93.1 to rebrand - probably on or near February 22

Ive never listened to WYCD on 99.5, prob. since WOW FM. So it's true - someone actually DID listen to Wow FM! So that makes three. This person, and the two middle school students who would call in and do prank calls. We did have a lot of prank phone calls... WOW-FM was an unmitigated disaster. I wa...

Re: Could a Breeze Format make it in Toledo?

In a recent suggestion, our fearless leader wrote:Where would Soft AC work best? I hereby nominate 98.3! :)
Don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen. I believe that 98.3 is going to stay committed to being a Monroe focussed station, whatever the format.

Re: Could a Breeze Format make it in Toledo?

Remember, an HD2 or HD3 signal can be rebroadcast on an FM translator, and I think iHeart has a couple in the market. (Interesting that there is no "Breeze Toledo" on iHeart Radio however.) Based on what is being played on Toledo radio today (based on my last visit in November) a Breeze style format...

Re: Broadcaster Mark Elliot (Nils Johanson) Has Passed Away

This Mark Elliott is alive and well... although I never worked at WNIC - did work in Evansville after a stint in Northern Michigan.
And now back on the air Saturday mornings on Lite 96.3 - Petoskey Traverse City. This Mark(Nils) was a great jock on CKLW.
