AAA - can it still work in Detroit?

I am surprised WKLQ hasn’t been brought into this discussion. They are a laid-back AAA, relaxed imaging (it could be a little more upbeat... I do like the music mix. And yes, it’s a GR station, but I figured someone would have used it for comparison. WXRT flat out rocks. Basically a P2 for me. Sent ...

Re: Big changes in just released June ratings survey; WJR hits all-time record low

1130 or 1270 will not switch unless the stations are sold. The only other station even trying talk is 910, and that’s barely. 910 is comedy radio. That’s right, tough guy! Hoooooooo! USA, USA, USA!!!

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

Another week, and WOOD and WOTV are still off. It’s interesting that AT&T Uverse has removed both NBC and ABC from On Demand, even though there’s another ABC (WZZM) not involved in the dispute on the system. Why does one supersede the other? WOTV is owned by Nexstar. Sent from my iPhone using Tapat...

Re: Why is Sanilac part of the Detroit DMA?

Many stations include counties outside of their DMA on their weather maps. For example, WZZM doesn't include two in-market counties (Branch and St. Joseph) in their weather maps, but includes four Traverse City-Cadillac market counties (Lake, Mason, Mecosta, Osceola). That may be partly because the...

Re: Avila Gets Contract Extension

Please don't compare Theo to Avila.. that's laughable.. Avila is banking everything on mize.. we'll see, but this rebuild could last 5 or 6 more years... Theo’s rebuild with the Cubs started in 2011 and didn’t start to pay off until 2015. Rebuilds take time when done right. Sent from my iPhone usin...

Tell that to Theo Epstein and the 2016 Cubs. Quite a bit of that WS team was homegrown.

Re: 101.3 The Brew

How would a station like KDRB Des Moines fair in this market? Good question. The same “Jack” format is on 96.5 WZOX in Kalamazoo, but it hasn’t been on for a full ratings period yet to have numbers to work with (Kzoo is a diary market, fall and spring ratings). Our humble host MW seems to like the ...

Glen is currently with WMU overseeing WIDR and the Western Herald, IIRC.
