Re: Epstein Will Be Trump’s Banana Peel

At least two well known politicians have been named by one of Epstein's victims as partaking in sexual acts with human trafficking victims. One is former Senate Majority Leader and Disney Chairman, George Mitchell (D-Maine). The other is former New Mexico Governor, Energy Secretary and failed Presid...

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

Ron’s either a complete nonentity in this market or so superior that no one would ever consider him to be Detroit’s worst sports media personality:
He's been a non-entity for at least three decades. Purchases his air time from WDTK.

Re: This Thursday: Kimmel, Colbert, Fallon, Conan, and Seth Meyers all having a secret

Wow. You take that disdainful of a view of someone in show business just because of their political leanings? Perhaps it is you who is overly sensitive. Lighten up!

I will say this - the whole "Ron Burgundy" thing jumped the shark for me some time ago. Do people still find his shtick amusing?

Re: LED Lighting

I have to confess - I have 5000K ("daylight") LED bulbs in multiple rooms in the house. They emit less heat than yellow LED and incandescent bulbs, and as such, I like to use them during warm weather months. LED bulbs do emit bright light and it seems at times their incandescent equivalent wattage i...

Re: Black Lives Don't Matter?

How about we figure out how to stop the mass murder of people in Chicago that happens almost every weekend? None of the major political figures are or have ever cared enough to tackle this. We need more undercover officers to arrest drug pushers. That's step 1. We need Indiana to toughen its gun la...

Re: Black Lives Don't Matter?

I guess some of you don't like to read details closely. Did you see this line from Bryce's article? But many of the illegal weapons seized in Chicago come from across the state line in Indiana , where gun laws are less restrictive. East Chicago, IN & Hammon, IN are about a 10 - 20 minute drive from ...

Re: Ratings are out!

Sounds like KHQ may have seen a nice gain? I bet Lite 96 fared well, too, given the weak performances of The Fox FM, WCCW-FM, etc. 96.7 The Bull can be a wild card depending on where diaries get distributed. 101.9 fucked up when it dumped country. Classic country centered on the 90s and early 2000s ...

Re: WJR hits another all-time low and takes a big plunge from last month's already terrible numbers!

Some WWJ transmitter work could be ongoing. HD has been off the air for close to three weeks now.

As a reminder, AM ground wave is always worse during hot, dry weather. This could be a factor in reception issues, too.

Re: WSB Atlanta

Frequency has never been part of the FCC's mandatory ID requirements for as long as I've been following broadcasting (20+ years). Cox will keep AM 750 probably as-is. Same strategy as WBBM AM & WCFS FM in Chicago. Once AM radio is truly on death's doorstep (it's getting closer day by day), they'll p...
