Re: Burger King old logo

Fast food options in this part of the country flat out suck. I am extremely jealous of the great state of Texas, which has Whataburger and Taco Cabana. Burger King was awesome until the early/mid 90's. Decent for another 5 to 10 years after that. The turning point was a horrendous new recipe for th...

Re: Melissa V on WTVG

Ha, she does kind of have arms like Lex Luger.

But I'd still rather watch 13 than 11. I saw 11 just hired Jeff Smith, boy can't wait for Hairpiece and Spray Tan together. Miraculously now his broadcasts with Sashem Brey will seem NOT vapid.

Re: Melissa V on WTVG

Or maybe it's just age? She's been around for awhile. It's nice to see she's still going after the heart condition she had a few years back (during which WTOL quietly fired her). Besides, even if she had work done she's not even the fakest-looking Melissa in Toledo news. Mel andrews on 11 could stan...

I always thought Smog, Potholes, SR-22s, GEDs, and White Flight would have been a better name for the hockey team than "Walleye", guess we can also add your suggestion to the list

Re: Lions are returning to 97.1 The Ticket

The yenta allegedly responsible for the move to WJR in the first place was fired by the Lions this past January. I have no idea if that decision contributed to her dismissal. Was that the same PR woman who called the Allen Park police on Jeff Moss back in the day because a photoshop of William Clay...

Re: WTOL (CBS) Toledo approved for power increase by FCC.

It's really frustrating because if you go back 10 years, WTOL was a quality operation for this size market, WTVG was a solid ABC O&O instead of a Gray happy talk station that downplays local pandemic stats so as not to make great holy sponsor Promedica look bad, WUPW while low budget employed good p...

Re: Tigers on WMTR

They seem to be all-Christmas music currently. Not my cup of tea except on Christmas Eve night and Christmas Day itself, but it might be yours if you want an alternative to the River playing Mariah Carey and Paul McCartney endlessly.

Re: WTOL (CBS) Toledo approved for power increase by FCC.

Great!!... Now there’s signal will be able to travel to Findlay, Ohio. 😂🤣 Cracks me up when Toledo stations cover out of market cities that have their own local news stations. In this case, "Your News Now" from Lima and WTOL/13abc. It's kinda like Blade Holdings never created the 1 station with 2 n...

Re: Tigers on WMTR

Of course this situation is infamous for blocking the Tigers from airing on FM in Toledo, but it's not really worth bitching about anymore since nobody has made an effort to pick up the Tigers even elsewhere on AM in Toledo since 1470 was shut down. Since I moved from Oregon to Maumee I've gotten to...

Re: Speedway gas stations going bye bye

I probably haven't been able to pay after pumping in 20 years. In 2000 when there was the first big spike in gas prices in a long time stations even in good areas started having problems with drive offs after filling up and most became pay inside first or pay at the pump. at least around Toledo, Spe...

Re: Slogans not matching stations

Pretty sure Green Bay's black community is much smaller than Holy Mother Toledo's Hispanic community, yet the only Spanish language radio heard in T-town is a couple of hours on the weekend on WCWA. So it's not like Green Bay is uniquely racist. You want every market to sound like San Francisco. Not...

Re: Slogans not matching stations

Most of the people in those markets are white and Christian so yes, the radio is going to match that.

I like rock, both have very good rock stations that play new music as opposed to stale old WIOT, WRKR, WLUP before it was put out of its misery, etc.

Re: Slogans not matching stations

Ten years ago, there were two fewer country signals in Toledo. 98.3 was spinning CHR/Pop and 107.7 was broadcasting to the boonies. I've got news for ya - radio sucks in Detroit, too! And Chicago, and Cleveland, and Milwaukee, and Kalamazoo, and South Bend. Frankly the only two markets I find decen...

You guys are all too young when WIOT was the top mid-market AOR station in the entire country...one of kind and Frazier Reams (RIP) let them make him the cash and do whatever they pretty much wanted to.
