Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

I have to ask, and this is serious: of what value are the WWWM calls to the Toledo market? Or WLQR? I really don’t think anyone is itching to bring “3WM” back to the market so it’s parking on “Love 105” is quite unnecessary. Even with diaries, call letters shouldn’t be necessary when logging statio...

Re: Uncensored music on 94.5 WXKR

For decades, WMMS played Funkadelic’s Maggot Brain at 1:30am on Sunday morning. Then WNCX picked up on that tradition in the late 1980s, playing it at 11:50pm every Saturday night, which continues to this day. Not one complaint has or had ever been lodged against either station for the big ol’ S-bom...

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

Why was WJLB counted in the 6+? Usually stations in adjacent markets don't get counted, you don't see Cleveland stations in the Akron book and vice versa. The problem for 105.5 isn't in the 6+ or 12+ we see... I betcha they're getting beat by KISS pretty badly in the key demo. Fact of the matter is,...

Re: WPAY

One problem, and it's no surprise, WPAY has a programming issue, it's paid religion. Is it not? It's a very small niche of the program spectrum. And, there are literally hundreds of stations. Not exactly mass appeal! WPAY is a high-band AM in a market that has almost entirely abandoned the band for...

Re: WPAY

Any word, if WPAY has been bought, yet? Nothing so far. It's telling that EMF has been unable to unload it while every other AM station they've had to buy (as a throwaway with an FM purchase) have quickly been disposed of. They seriously don't want AM signals, and presumably have had it on the bloc...

EAS Test oops?

From one of my friends, who monitors EAS alters and tests from all over as a hobby: WWJ was supposed to have issued this months' EAS test for the Detroit region, alternating responsibility with WJR (and the Michigan State Police in Lansing, who issue tests twice a year)... but it didn't happen this ...

Re: I want to compliment someone who doesn't receive nearly enough kudos on here...

Is there anyone else in TV as an on air news talent with similar longevity at one station? Dorothy Fuldheim had a very long career as a newspaper writer before embarking on a 37 year run at WEWS Channel 5 when it signed on, ultimately retiring in her early 90s. Dick Goddard was WJW Channel 8's chie...

Re: WPAY

hmmm? Just weird they ditched K-love classics and put UFT talk back on for like a week and then now airing American Family radio. Unless they are possibly planning on selling the station to AFA. I've mentioned this before but why don't they swap with family radio? Move Family radio to 1520 and put ...

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

From FTLive that the Nexstar & Tribune merger could be approved any day now. I also read from Plaine-Dealer that Nexstar wants to keep WJW but Fox wants it back again so some TV stations could still be in limbo after the merger I say Nexstar should sell the TV stations that Fox wants if they want W...

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

For evenings, bring back the one-hour "WJR SportsWrap at 7pm. Followed by Warren Pierce, Hal Youngblood, or David Newman from 8p to 11p. Followed by the "WJR News Final" at 11pm. and end the evening with the 11:15 "WJR Sports Final" with Bob Page, Paul Carey, or Bob Reynolds. Now, that's great radi...

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

Levin hasn’t changed one bit of his “old man hyperventilating at a cloud” routine over the past decade. It’s old, tired and boring. It’s so predictable that you don’t even need to tune in, you can easily guess what he’ll say. He’s also one of the few other top-tier hosts in the format, which does a ...
