Re: The updated sound of 103.3 WKFR

Will a Kalamazoo-based FM give Adult Contemporary a try, or will all of the local stations cede the format to out-of-market stations, as is the case with Country? With Nielsen changing listing rules this spring, we'll start to see Grand Rapids stations being listed in publicly published Nielsen 12+...

Re: WVFM got JACKED up!

Has anyone noticed that Midwest labels Hits 96.5 as a Hot AC station on their corporate website? https://mwcradio.com/station/106/. Their website has had some issues with accuracy in the past. Back in October, the website listed WVFM as a Classic Hits station: https://web.archive.org/web/20201028144...

Re: WVFM got JACKED up!

Wow, this is a shocker. I agree with MWmetalhead's prediction for 96.5. I would prefer to hear a music format on 96.5, but rebroadcasting WKZO is a fiscally prudent move as radio attempts to survive and emerge from the COVID downturn. Detroit Tigers broadcasts on 96.5 should not be an issue this yea...

Bobby Guy moved from afternoons to mornings. Eric Meier is now listed as the afternoon host.

Re: WMUK finally responds to sluggish ratings; major programming changes underway!

WMUK has very detailed write-up about the changes on their website: https://www.wmuk.org/2020 . They did not go into detail about the ownership status of the 89.9 frequency. From what I can find online, 89.9 is still owned by Kalamazoo Public Schools. For those of you not in the Kalamazoo area, the ...

Re: 930/102.7 in Battle Creek flips to Classic Hits

Hopefully Midwest does the format justice in Battle Creek unlike their piss poor attempt at Classic HIts in Lansing @ 92.9 FM. I wouldn't count on it. I have been tuning into AM 930 this weekend and it sounds like they are just piping in the Classic Hits format from Westwood One. The Westwood One f...

WZUU is much more tolerable now with the "Hometown Music Authority" branding than the old "Real Rock" branding when we got heavy doses of Winger and Ratt deep tracks. I agree - it still stinks, but it's not as terrible as a few years ago. Is Bob Brink ready to cash in yet?

Re: 94.5 The Q - new format is Adult Album Alternative

I should have clarified. The current station ID on 94.5 is "WTNR Holland and WBBL Greeneville/Grand Rapids." Why include WBBL in the ID if 94.5 and 107.3 are no longer simulcasting? I would give them a pass if it was a generic ID that they forgot to replace after the format change, but they actually...
