March Nielsen numbers are out for Detroit radio

The impact of the new 106.7 WLLZ so far is pretty close to what some of us expected. I was thinking the station would debut with about a 3 share and grab a couple shares away from WCSX & WRIF on a combined basis. WLLZ performed even a bit better than that - grabbing a respectable 3.4 share. There ma...

Re: CUMULUS MAJOR SALE , The sequel..

Makes one wonder which other major market stations Cumulus is willing to dump!

All stations sold so far are weak billers in their respective markets.

Re: 2018-2019 Pistons

With his "career season," the Pistons were one game away from missing the postseason in a lousy eastern conference altogether. His propensity for injury - especially late in the season - is one of the reasons the Pistons should've never made the deal!!! That backcourt of theirs is an abomination. Dr...

Re: 2018-2019 Pistons

The L.A. Clippers / Pistons trade from last season will go down as one of the worst trade deals in Detroit sports history, IMO. The Blake Griffin contract is like an albatross around the Pistons' necks. SEE, I TOLD YA SO!!!! :horns The team is filled with lazy slouches who don't like to play defens...

Re: Is Bill McAllister voicetracking mornings at 106.7 Fake Wheels?

You may want to study your history here. The original Wheels was heavily staffed with former WRIF talent. Some jumped ship, others were, as you say, cast-offs. So it's not that big of a stretch to see it happen again. Of the current staff at 106.7 Fake Wheels, only ONE individual (!!!) ever worked ...

Re: Is Bill McAllister voicetracking mornings at 106.7 Fake Wheels?

Mega is correct. Lest there be any doubt - I absolutely loathe the fact Dave Dahmer handles afternoon drive, and Jerry Tarrants at night - the guy who hired Dahmer - is a no-talent bore. I actually like Juline Jordan's on-air work, but Donielle Flynn (who handles weekends) would sound better in that...

Re: WHNE needs your Help........

Hopefully, there's less home shopping and more in the way of quality programming in store.

GET was a terrific addition a year ago. I wish it were available on cable. Having to haul out the antenna whenever I want to watch Married with Children is a pain.

I don't believe Tom Izzo covered up anything and isn't a dirty coach either. The list of players of his accused of - or actually charged with - sexually assault through the years is a mile long. He also had an assistant coach accused of multiple infractions while with the program, which was well pu...

Re: Is Bill McAllister voicetracking mornings at 106.7 Fake Wheels?

If he's live - that's rather incredible. He does next to NOTHING on the air. Sometimes, 45 minutes or more pass without him saying a single word. Trudi was a midday jock at 105.1 up north for all of six months (maybe a little longer) - voicetracked, of course. I believe that is her only prior music ...

Re: Spreading the hate

Tom Joyner is definitely hateful. He doesn't just have an aversion toward conservatives; he has antipathy toward "White America" in general. He makes little if any effort to hide his feelings. Even the audience to whom he attempts to appeal, I think, is turned off by his attitude. This is why Tom Jo...
