Re: Tri Cities Ratings

A few observations: I’d love to know what the ratings are for the McDonald Broadcasting stations. KCQ used to be #1 or close to it. Wondering also where Joe FM comes in No idea where Joe FM falls but for KCQ your words "used to be" is the operative phrase. Except for one or two dayparts here and th...

Re: "We cannot play two females back-to-back"

Keep in mind this is the same station who's music director created a similar controversy by equating female artists to tomatoes. http://www.cmt.com/news/1754800/men-are-lettuce-women-are-tomatoes/ The current dust up wouldn't surprise me if Keith was still working for them or if Greg Cole were still...

Re: What happened to Jennifer Profitt?

By "actual employment records" I did not mean to imply that I had access to an official document ...but there is a record of when she began working, thus a record of when her employment began.

Re: WILZ Tim Brandow mistake??

Who thinks that air talent has a say in what is played anymore? Even with a special feature such as this where the talent may have a smidgen of freedom to pick a song out of rotation, you are at the mercy of a selection of songs approved by the consultant in the playlist so you do the best you can.

Re: What happened to Jennifer Profitt?

The promo began in September of 2018. She left less than 8 months later. Instead of a promo why not look at actual employment records...Jennifer started at 25/66 in 2015 as did her segment. And, to put another of your fantasies to rest, there were only one or two syndicated packages per week on the...

Re: 40 years ago in 1979

I remember running a reel-to-reel automation system similar to this one in 1979-1981. I worked on an AM station and the FM was automated easy listening. I had to go in every hour or so and swap out the commercial cartridges in the carousel and change the reels around when necessary. There was some s...

That song fades out at the 3:50 mark!!!
Because it's nothing but fade out from that point on. Even then, they begin repeating the chorus starting at the 3:00 minute mark. I know some programmers who would say to end the song right there.

They sent it because there was a fire at a Consumers Energy facility. Natural gas production is shut down and they are asking people to reduce use as a rationing measure.
