Re: Listeners are abandoning local radio in droves in the Lansing market

The Lansing radio market is no longer relevant. The days of Tim, Rich, etc.. with something interesting to say is gone. There is nothing that distinguishes Lansing from Sirius. Everything is voicetracked, sometimes they even have the wrong days voicetrack airing. The TV stations are the only place ...

Re: Guy Gordon - Epic FAIL

Believe it or not, Guy himself has admitted, on-air, that he almost never listens to WJR, outside of his own show! While I am sure Guy is a decent person, rarely have I heard so many gaffes, factually wrong statements, and a situation where a host is constantly being verbally spanked by his own call...

Guy Gordon - Epic FAIL

Just heard Guy tell a caller in his usual condescending tone "the Dayton shooter had no prior contact with police"...

Does this fool do ANY show prep at all???? The Guy Gordon Show is turning into a daily radio trainwreck.

Re: WJIM stations

You mean Harold Gross? After Gross was Lee Licinger Grant Santimore bought WJIM-AM & FM from Gross. Santimore sold the radio stations to Licinger, who later sold them to Bob Liggett. WJIM-TV (WLNS) was sold to John Backe, who eventually sold it to Young Broadcasting. I never knew Gross, but Grant S...

Re: The Breeze

Right, by all means, let's just keep recycling the same old, tired acts, and tired voices. Ian sounds just fine. As mentioned before, he lacks the overdone "Ron Radio" voice that many of you rubes are accustomed to. That's where the problem is. I've worked with Sandy, but her voicetracked, John Tesh...

Re: IHeart Outages

Microwave STL's, where possible, are the best way to go. If you don't believe me, try to listen to WWJ during a severe weather outbreak. The STL drops multiple times. As I recall, WWJ's "phone line" STL has to pass across 3 different telco carriers between Southfield, and Berlin Township. With Chann...

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

WJR should be carrying Phil Valentine. He's in the Cumulus stable of talkers, and they recently renewed his contract. Listening to Guy Gordon get his ass handed to him by his callers is only going to be funny for so long. Get rid of the 7PM "infomercial dujour" which is nothing but a giant tune-out ...

Re: Robert Liggett passes...

I did not expect to hear the news about Bob. The last time I saw him was a couple of years ago. He seemed to be doing okay. You just never know. 99.5 Class-FM was quite an adventure. When you would bring it up, Bob would usually change the subject. Ken Monicatti (the car dealer) was also involved in...

Re: Local Radio Newscasts - Terrible!

I supposed there is a reason for the 3 posts on the topic. My bad on that one. While trying to post, I got the "504" gateway time-out error several times. And no, it was NOT Greg Bowman. But seriously, "MAHN-row" "ROE-tunda" and "Buh-DELL"? It's pathetic, to hear that we need a pronunciation guide ...

Local Radio Newscasts - Terrible!

I won't name the station or newscaster, but OMG, if you can't even pronounce "Monroe" "Rotunda" or "Biddle" correctly, you may be in the wrong line of work. It would be funny if it were not so sad.

This is a good idea, and perfect for Q106. Let's hope the sales geeks can sell it.
