Re: On a scale of 0-10, how worried are you about coronavirus?

I did read through the entire order. While it starts out as sounding very strict, once you get into the exceptions list, there are holes so big you could drive a truck through them. I'm not sure this is really going to help much. Same thing here in Ohio. Except I’ve read that disobeying the order c...

Re: “I’m in the media, I can’t stay home”

The DHS disagrees with you which is why letters went out last week for broadcasters to keep on their person or in their vehicle explaining that they are considered essential . Mine is in my glove compartment. So, how has your work environment changed to keep you safe? One person plus cameraman per ...

Re: KROQ cans entire morning team

Jeeze.... Wasn’t the morning show propping up KROQ for all these years? But, surprisingly, Woody over at KYSR has been cleaning their clocks, so maybe it’s time for a change. Probably the only place where The Woody Show is having success. I know Entercom has an unhealthy love of the Alternative form...

Re: Clown show at MSU (WXYT related)

LOL! They can’t get any of their targets to defect to that shitshow! It really doesn’t help that Dantonio left at a horrible time, so it would be very hard to recruit for next year.

It’s gonna be a tough few years in East Landfill.

Re: Iheart Disloctation

The COL is little more than legalese, as far as anyone’s concerned. The vast majority of people in the market consider KISS FM a Cleveland station. If your station was located a little outside the market, but put a full signal over the larger metro, wouldn’t you want to claim that market and the inc...

Re: Iheart Disloctation

Simple. WAKS puts a great signal over virtually the entire Cleveland market. There is WAY more money to be made in Cleveland than Akron, so if they can market it as a Cleveland station, that is what they’ll do. By Cleveland’s hit music station, they mean for the people of (Greater) Cleveland, not th...

Re: The End of 107.3 The Wave Cleveland

RCRG stopped subscribing in Cleveland about five years ago, but when they did, the Wave got between 1.5 and 2.0 6+. Given the target demo for Smooth Jazz, I can’t imagine the 25-54 was anything above a 1.0. The only good thing I can think of relating to this is that if numbers stall out, they could ...

Re: The End of 107.3 The Wave Cleveland

Cities 97 in Minneapolis gets decent ratings, but other than that, Modern AC has flopped everywhere it’s been tried in the last decade or so. This sounds a lot like SiriusXM’s The Pulse. Will be interesting to see how long this lasts.

Well, the secret to the “Jeny” will be revealed between 10 and 11 tomorrow. If this is indeed link to the 107.3 format, we’ll have an answer then!

Well, it’s a simulcast of WQMX. At least for now. Radio insight believes this is temporary, so I guess we’ll see how long it lasts.

Ahh, yes I forgot all about GKB flipping their Country station in Milwaukee to ESPN. Mr. Karmazin loves his ESPN, for better or for worse. I could’ve sworn C-Bus had another Country station....well, maybe Saga should be seeing a Yuuuuuge format hole then! Rewind has horrible ratings anymore. I still...

Re: The End of 107.3 The Wave Cleveland

My guesses are either Country of some form or Soft AC. While WQMX puts a nice signal into the western part of the market (I don’t travel much into the East parts anymore so no idea there), Cleveland is the only PPMmarket in the Great Lakes region that doesn’t have two Country stations that specially...

Re: End of The Road for WBAI 99.5fm NYC pt 2

Per WBAI’s Twitter, Pacifica ‘s Board has agreed to restore the station to its local programming. Of course, Pacifica leadership claims that the vote is not legal. What a (not surprising) mess as this drags on. No matter how bleak things look for WBAI, I will never consider them dead or dying until ...

Re: End of The Road for WBAI 99.5fm NYC pt 2

Yup. Pacifica even took out the EAS equipment, leaving the WBAI staff no way to (legally) run the station themselves. It’s amazing how dysfunctional the relationship between Pacifica and WBAI has been for YEARS and they’re both somehow alive. It’s as if the same business ineptitude that has placed t...
