Sold! $110,000.

RadioInsight has the report.

A nonprofit purchased the station.
This goes to show where the values really are on these rimshot facilities. I may be wrong, but didn't Dan Dudley get a couple MILLION for this clunker?

Re: CKUE 95.1 Interference?

The dead air carrier is present at 95.1 MHz as we speak. Is it completely overpowering CKUE at your location? Where I am, west northwest of you, the dead carrier is in the background, making CKUE sound fuzzy. This has to stop. There is no FCC rule that allows a station to broadcast a dead carrier, ...

Re: Who will.replace Frank Beckmann

Chris Renwick in for Frank today. Much better show, with hard hitting questions. Big improvement over Frank's usual bloviating. Frank's replacement should be obvious to anyone listening.

Re: CKUE 95.1 Interference?

I've been noticing intermittent interference to 95.1 with a dead air carrier at random times for nearly the past two months. I didn't notice it yesterday, but today I noticed the interfering signal was particularly strong in the vicinity of the Troy Motor Mall, Maple & Crooks area. CKUE's signal wa...

Re: Frank Beckmann to retire from WJR

He had a great career in sportscasting and to blast him because of his politics is just what Lib's do. Nice try, but I'm not a "Lib" and never have been. My political views are pretty much even with Frank's. Regardless, he still puts on a very uninformed, uninspiring show. Chris Renwick would be th...

Re: Will WJR Soon Drop Talk For All News?

The Cumulus "All News" experiment in Atlanta flamed out badly. I can't see all news coming from Cumulus. Something similar to 99.7 in Nashville, would be an improvement over what WJR is now...a stodgy, tired old station that makes most of it's money on infomercials.

Frank Beckmann to retire from WJR

Frank announced he will retire March 26. If I still worked in the Fisher Building, I'd gladly hold the door open for him on his way out. :lol Chris Renwick, Frank's producer, is a great talent, and should take over the show...if there's still a show to take over. Now, if they would only get rid of G...

CKUE 95.1 Interference?

There seems to be what sounds like a dead carrier, on 95.1, interfering with CoOL FM. Could it be that 1440 WMKM Inkster has built their shitbag translator? If I point the antenna in the general direction of Lake St. Clair, the interference seems to lose the battle. Strangely enough, I pulled off La...

Re: 1090 now Fox Sports

WCAR, previously WIID, WTAK, and originally WERB, WBRB's sister station, was a cash machine when Walter Wolpin owned it. WTAK was metro Detroit's first all talk station, and made Lou Gordon famous. The day and night patterns on this facility are very different, and the station actually increases pow...
