Re: 94.5 The Q - new format is Adult Album Alternative

I completely agree with you, Riggs, regarding Cities 97. Cities 97 was a real Triple A until late 90's (they were unmistakably Triple A in 1994 when I first heard the station)...then they become Modern AC and then Hot AC outright. They even joined some Hot AC reporting panels. I presume iFart / Clea...

Anyone else feel the earthquake this morning? (6/10)

Just before 11a this morning, I left my desk to get a drink of water, and a feeling of motion sickness suddenly came about me. The wall-mounted TV down the floor looked like it was oscillating. Turns out I wasn't losing my mind after all! :) 4.2 quake centered just northeast of Cleveland. https://fo...

Re: WJR vs. WWJ Fields at Utica, MI

Yup; disappears rapidly (even during daylight hours) from Jackson westward. Their signal is probably stronger in Mt. Pleasant than it is in Jackson.

Predictions as to who winds up with 107.5 WGPR?

OK. So we all now know that Urban One says it has no interest at all in extending its current LMA of WGPR beyond 2019. Beasley says it wants at least a 30 percent revenue share in the markets it operates. My best guess is they are now at 25 percent (give or take a percentage point or two) pro forma ...

Re: URBAN ONE is selling Urban AC WDMK

Wait - they're running Hughley in afternoons, too? If Urban One keeps a good chunk of the ad inventory in both drive times, this doesn't look like such a good deal, if you are a Beasley shareholder. Not to mention, Beasley will now have the burden of maintaining all those shitty translator sites and...

Re: URBAN ONE is selling Urban AC WDMK

I knew it was only a matter of time until Urban One exited Detroit!!! $13.5 million seems like a fair price for 105.9, assuming Beasley actually retains decent inventory to sell in A.M. drive. Would like to see 105.9 skew older and play classic soul and Motown again. I'm very anxious to see what bec...

Folks in the Bay Region have two fine country stations - 98KCQ and 94.5 The Moose. You're lucky. :)

Re: Warren High School TV station signing on for the first time in years this Fall.

F-Squared, are you also involved with 89.1 WPHS? Curious to know when the station is going to boost its transmitting wattage, assuming it has not done so already. Thanks!

Re: Deleted Users?

There is one very good suggestion on this thread. I agree that some people might be changing user IDs to circumvent the ignore function. Rules /Terms of Use will soon be updated. I will be checking suspected instances of this going forward.

Oh well. At least they don't suck half as bad as their sister station in Grand Rapids. WBFX is a disgrace.

Re: Biden's Done...

Buttigieg's resume is much lighter than that of Obama or even (gasp)...Sarah Palin.

I simply cannot see the mayor of tiny South Bend, IN becoming a major party's Presidential nominee. Someone else will emerge and steal his momentum.

Re: Biden's Done...

No Cory Booker? I think either someone from the "everyone else" column, Sanders or Warren will be the nominee. If I were to make a guess today, I'd say Warren (same pick I made a year ago). She is just far enough left to appeal to young progressives but is tenured enough to appeal to the establishme...
