Re: Will There be "Terrorism Alerts" during Tiger Broadcasts?

Sinclair is more likely to run these RSNs on the cheap. Any type of political shenanigans would burn bridges with the teams said RSNs have contracts with. It also should be noted that the main impetus for this deal was their current inability to buy any more television stations (since being placed i...

Re: Big News regarding ESPN 1000, Chicago

WTMJ/WKTI are obviously still Nielsen subscribers via an inherited contract with Scripps, and 540 got carried over. I’d expect that contract to lapse at some point. 'TMJ is a MLB and NFL flagship. I'll bet you a beer that they are required by contract to be a Nielsen subscriber. WKNR doesn't subscr...

Re: Big News regarding ESPN 1000, Chicago

Agreed about Goldhammer. He’s not good on the air either. I used to listen to Rizzo and Goldhammer about 10 years ago when all I had at work was terrestrial radio. WKNR comes in good in Toledo during the day and they were the best of a bad selection in middays, but that doesn't mean they were good....

New FOX 8 set, and graphics package, to debut 8-26 https://youtu.be/ohTlBvd0le0 Looks like the same graphics as Tribune's other Fox stations. See also: WPMT/York, WXMI/Grand Rapids, WXIN/Indianapolis, KSWB/San Diego. Honestly, I'm not even sure why Tribune's going to all this effort when it's going...

Re: Uncensored music on 94.5 WXKR

No one expected the massive Puritanical overreaction to that SB halftime stunt, on the part of outraged viewers or the FCC. And the FCC forced Clear Channel’s hand into firing Bubba Clem and canceling Howard Stern on all their stations by levying that massive fine on them. It was a catastrophically ...

The dumbasses at Good Karma below up a moderately successful country station with a 4 share in favor of an All Sports format at 94.5 FM in Milwaukee that now grabs around a 0.7 share. :lol All five all-sports stations do badly in the 12+ glorified beauty pageant demo. Doesn’t mean they are losing m...

Re: Big News regarding ESPN 1000, Chicago

I am very familiar with their Cleveland station. Curious as to what changes they will make. They’ll charge $10.00 a month for podcasts no one wants and install friends of Craig K. in management positions regardless of the qualifications or lack thereof (*cough* Aaron Goldhammer *cough*). WSCR has t...

Re: WDRV now #1 in Chicago

WXRT has always been a great station in Chicago, it’s to bad no one in Detroit can do a format like WXRT, it could do well. The River 93.9 had the opportunity to do something like that but never really caught on to what a AAA formatted station should actually sound like. It's a legacy brand that wa...

Re: CBSDetroit62

WGPR radio's founder, Ross Mulholland, put it on the air in '61, and the callsign was chosen to signify "Grosse Pointe Radio," as its offices and origination studio were indeed in Grosse Pointe. If I'm not mistaken, it may have been the first station in the market to broadcast in stereo. For those ...

Re: Why Would Local Media Sit On A Story?

It is unethical for news agencies to report suicides and identify victims of sexual assault. Therefore if it is believed to be a suicide then no newsroom will waste resources on it, especially on a weekend with skeleton crews. That is 100% what I've heard in the past. I'm wondering why 4 was even t...

Re: Now we know where WQAN was broadcasting from!

He made a "donation" of $50,000 and lost his CP over the 95.9 license over a decade ago. But that was a result of filing false paperwork to meet a deadline. When he started using STL frequencies licensed to Interlochen, there was no penalty. In this case, he didn't mislead the fcc, he just started ...

Re: Now we know where WQAN was broadcasting from!

Has there been a response to the violation? A STA application can't be the only response. This is a lack of candor issue. It's going to take awhile for the hammer to finally come down, but it will. Roy/Blarney lied to the FCC with the unauthorized transmissions, and you just cannot lie to the FCC. ...
