Brianp. I’ve spent a few unfortunate moments reading some of your whiskey induced abnormal posts on this board. You, my friend, are one sick piece of shit.

On a side note, K-Zoo is losing a legendary broadcasting professional in Mike McKelly. Consummate pro. Humble guy. Had the talent to work in the majors but decided his family was more important. Glad to see him go out after 30 years with some great memories of doing some great radio in a pretty dece...

Re: Nielsen audio round-up - #'s published on July 21

Midwest would half-ass it, though. I do not at all trust them to perform the job properly. For some reason, WVFM and WNWN-FM are the only stations where they seem willing to invest $$$. Even 590 WKZO has become a steaming pile of garbage!!! It's a disgrace what they've let happen to 590, frankly. Y...

Re: Nielsen audio round-up - #'s published on July 21

Why Midwest hasn’t flipped one of their garbage frequencies and taken on KFR is baffling. Just match them song for song, lean it slightly rhythmic and KFR is done.

Re: Upward Mobility

MW answered the question 100% correctly. The attitudes of most talent has become based more on job security rather than upward mobility. Sure, you might not make 250k working at a union shop in Chicago, but the trade off of making 100k in GR with stability and less pressure is the way the game is pl...

Re: April Nielsen Audio #'s for Grand Rapids - WOOD Radio soars; worst showing for WSNX in years

If I were iHeart, I'd consider either taking WSNX into more of a Rhythmic direction or flipping 101.3 or 96.1 to Urban WSNX has always had the reputation in the market as the rhythmic alternative. They have shifted to a more pop leaning CHR recently, probably to protect themselves from mainstream W...

Re: April Radio Ratings

WJR increased bigly because almost all the other stations, TV and Radio, have a Hate Trump/Blame Trump Political Agenda. A lot of people put the blame where it belongs, on the people who were responsible for creating and/or isolating and exporting the virus, lying about it at every turn, and they a...

Re: WYCD's ratings fall to worst non-Holiday levels in MANY YEARS due to stupid programming changes

Couple of points about Channel 95.5 performance. One, they can thank Entercom for flipping AMP and handing them the format. I don’t consider ‘DVD to be a direct competitor. ‘DVD’s slogan “Today’s best music and more“ screams Hot AC. Two, Top 40 and Rhythmic Top 40 artists and their music are very st...

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

Maybe I’m just over thinking this. How ‘bout pick a target demo and play the hits. Scheduling rules from the 70’s just don’t apply anymore. There are reasons TSL is down across all formats. Streaming, satellite radio, and podcasts or digital audiobooks are our competition. If we continue to devolve ...
