Val Demings (rumored Biden running mate) has a checkered past relative to dealing with police brutality cases

Some context: Ms. Demings was the chief of the Orlando, FL Police Department for four years and was deputy chief prior to that. In prior interviews when she was still in those positions, she poo-pooed use of force and excessive force incidents, essentially treating them like mathematical rounding er...

Re: "King Of All Media" Will Have To Step Down From Throne

Indeed, he received a mechanical engineering degree from MSU. He loved hanging out in Ann Arbor, though (he used to go there for the weed).

He hosted Jackie's Joke Hunt on Howard 101 for a number of years.

Re: Surprised It Took This Long

I thank you both for describing the area for the rest of us. At least for me, your descriptions give perspective to what we're seeing on TV. In my view - the people who live in the CHOP zone should be given the opportunity to vote on secession from the city of Seattle. If the people who live there w...

Re: WWJ sounds great right now! Full 10 kHz analog bandwidth!

Not sure how long ago it happened - but another AM station in Detroit has turned off its I-BLOC hiss machine! :) AM 1340 WCHB is now solely broadcasting in analog. The audio chain sounds nice and clean, but I do not believe this station is using a full 10 kHz of bandwidth. If I had to hazard a guess...

Re: Trump's First Klan Rally of 2020

McCain's age was a factor in 2008, which is why the Palin pick mattered so much. Biden is even older and not as mentally sharp as McCain was then. I'd argue there are even higher stakes for Biden than there were for McCain. On top of all that, Biden is facing an incumbent President. This country gen...

Re: Trump's First Klan Rally of 2020

I agree that Biden's VP pick could be a deal maker or deal breaker. Harris would be a horrible choice for Biden. She is polarizing, slimy, and I would not at all trust her with border, social welfare, or foreign policy decisions.

Re: Lew Dickey UPDATE

Cumulus does not deserve special treatment. Either allow all broadcasters who are subject to SEC regulation (i.e. shares are publicly traded and/or bonds are publicly registered, and therefore, all quarterly & annual financial reporting is of public record) to have majority foreign ownership or allo...

Re: "King Of All Media" Will Have To Step Down From Throne

Yup, TikTok, Instagram, and Snapchat are the popular social media platforms among youths these days. As for the whole blackface saga - there is certainly a double standard. Remember all the faux outrage over comments Megan Kelly made several years back? (The real reason NBC wanted her gone was weak ...

Re: Surprised It Took This Long

Is the CHOP area historically known for high crime rates?

I do hope that the insurgents / rebels/ whatever the hell you wanna call them allow police detectives to conduct a proper investigation.

Re: Ron Cameron

1460's piss ant signal barely makes it to Royal Oak. One has to have a tolerance for a lot of fuzz or an unusually good AM receiver to hear the station in this neck of the woods. I guess AM 910's rates are too expensive for Mr. Cameron. I would be stunned if his typical broadcast on 1460 has more th...

Re: 2020 Presidential Polls

Trump appears to be gaining ground in Michigan, based on the CNBC poll. I predict Trump will win Michigan in a squeaker.

On TV in Detroit, a ton of ads from Trump have been airing for about the past 10 days.
