Re: RePack Phase 8 started

That is indeed terrific news; I look forward to their return! I enjoy the Get TV channel, and the Drive-In Movies channel has greatly improved in recent weeks. By the way, I did crack out the $20 flat panel antenna from Amazon this morning. Other than WPXD's signal being stonger and WADL's signal be...

Re: Wayne County / Detroit Covid 19

The population density of Wayne County coupled with packed churches, high percentages of public transit usage, and the fact it is home to a "hub" airport with high passenger traffic are all contributing factors. A lot of Detroit residents have retail and service industry jobs. That, too, is a factor...

Re: A Small Change Might Help WJR, Cumulus Ratings

Your suggestion is a terrible idea for reasons that should be obvious.

The time to "get back to that" is after Rush hangs up the headphones, not now.

Re: Big 95.5 Chicago

While I agree that Big 95.5 might be dead man walking, you're forgetting that iHM already owns a gold-based AC station in Chicago, 93.9 Lite FM. https://939litefm.iheart.com/music/recently-played/ Lite FM's playlist is much closer to Detroit's 98.7 than Detroit's 100.3. If 95.5's classic country wee...

Re: ABC12 Great Lakes, Bay Region, News Room

I never saw what the damn problem was with "Tri-Cities."

Are there any organizations more useless than regional chambers of commerce?

Re: Whitmer Misses The Mark

Why do hospitals need approval from the state or feds to procure COVID-19 tests? Perhaps the supplier in question from Southfield either (a) hasn't received FDA approval or (b) hasn't done an effective job of marketing itself to regional hospitals and other health providers? Similarly, maybe health ...

Re: New Nielsen Audio ratings survey for Grand Rapids - a few interesting twists!

They tried when The Fox first launched in 2000 (or was it 2001?) and when the station relaunched as The Brew. Bob & Tom was not a cheap show to run and earned very respectable ratings for several years when 101.3 carried it. You are correct; the playlist is a nationally developed playlist with zero ...

Channel 7 looks very flat footed with its news coverage this early evening

June 2020 Auto Show relaunch - CANCELLED! Channel 7 devotes a 10 second mention. Zero mention of the fact that the reason it was cancelled is because FEMA will be using TCF Center (Cobo Center) as a field hospital for six months. President Trump is considering declaring a mandatory shelter-in-place ...

Re: Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer expected to issue coronavirus ‘Stay at home’ order

I don't have "King Chuck" in my banned names list. I could be mistaken, but I believe he chose to discontinue posting voluntarily.

Sorry for the mix up, Colonel. My compliments from earlier were indeed meant for you!

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

Worth noting, however, is that while I can't find the entire Taiwanese study without paying for it, the abstract indicates that the suicide rates are somewhat mitigated by government welfare. Meaning, the stimulus package that was just passed will actually reduce suicide rates. Financial ruin does ...

Re: 102.7 wmom back on air

Over 400 *new* Facebook postings to the WMOM page from folks who missed the station and are excited to see it come back to life.

That is a phenomenal response. I've seen new station launches in Grand Rapids that have garnered no more than a few dozen Facebook postings!

Re: Trump administration blocking PPE and other supplies to Michigan

Not sure if this is a case of the Feds blocking orders or suppliers picking & choosing whose orders get filled first.
