Re: B100 in South Bend fucks up BIG TIME

FedMed's done really stupid stuff in the past (see their botching of WOWO under Gregg Henson) but this is a new one, even for them.

Re: Andy Stuart out?

Picture from the Toledo Blade article today shows the paper can't be bothered by sending someone out to take a current picture. https://www.toledoblade.com/image/2019/10/02/1140x_a10-7_cTC/FEA-stuart25.jpg To be fair, it's credited as "Cumulus Radio building on Arlington Avenue in Toledo, Thursday,...

And....could somebody tell me why those WOHO call letters aren't being used by some station in the state of Ohio?
Last they were used was on the CP for what became WVXG 95.1 in Mount Gilead in the early 1990s. Thought someone would have claimed it by now.

Re: New WKYC logo

This was done by the station itself, not by Tegna. And for those who want to hate on it, I’d take it over the Boring McGraphics from Scripps, Sinclair, Fox and Nexstar, hands down. The promos have a European vibe to them and is unlike anything that has ever been attempted on US broadcast television....

Re: It's official - 105.9 Kiss is now owned by Beasley

I don't hear any difference in the sound of the station whatsoever. Same VO talent/Station ID's, and the evening love show was always there, nothing new. I have a tough time understanding Beasley taking over and are leaving everything the same and not making it their "own" .... Why would a broadcas...

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

Meanwhile the fate of WGN America and WGN 720 remains up in the air. Nexstar is pure-play, they don’t do radio and a cable channel stripped of any/all meaning is not in their best interests, either. Problem is, who’d really want 720? It’s a labor-intensive talk station with an aging audience, in a m...

Re: WDIV delaying today's Tonight Show Episode.

So it's back to the future for NBC. Early on in the Carson era, they reran the Tonight Show on Saturdays and Sundays; a contract renegotiation in 1975 ended the Saturday reruns and necessitated the creation of SNL.

I remember once in the late 70s, they ran "The Brady Bunch" and "Gilligan's Island" in reverse order one afternoon. Boy was I pissed! Perfectly great day RUINED!
it would have been something to see them play the episodes in reverse speed lol

Re: Source: Cumulus Detroit is for sale...

i think the moves they made at KOA will backfire. They own the spoken word format with KOA, KHOW and KDFD "Freedom 760." Plus there was a full month to migrate any KOA listeners over to KDFD, keeping them in the iHeart family. KFI dropped Rush a few years ago and it's not made that much a differenc...

Re: WJR hits another all-time low and takes a big plunge from last month's already terrible numbers!

WJR now has a worse AQH share in ages 6+ than 890 WLS in Chicago!!! WLS is slowly rising (in a market where more mainstream choices for spoken word programming exist than Detroit) and is now at its best mark in probably several years whereas WJR's numbers have quickly plummeted. My PPM encoding com...

WONW, there’s another station that is useless at the moment. Do they even have any local programming whatsoever? Nothing beyond any high school sports (if that). Defiance is a very small market and I don't think that WONW's had anything local since cutting out the last bit of standards music 15 yea...
