Re: I do want to pay our local news media outlets a compliment!

I must not have listened the day they were broadcasting live from the island. Their coverage seemed tempered compared to usual, which I was happy to see.

Re: I do want to pay our local news media outlets a compliment!

I'm fine with the conference being used as fodder for the Sunday shows. That's where it largely belongs.

Interesting. When did he exit 106.5?

Re: Mike Valenti and Juwan Howard

Could it be partially motivated? Sure, but not for the reason you suggest.

An African American with an accomplished NBA career could help Michigan tremendously at recruiting players from the inner city.

Re: Townsquare GR scores big name as new OM

Here's the type of playlist WGRD *should* feature (minus the crappy "Elevate" song from Papa Roach):

If I hear...

...WGRD's untalented Sunday morning jock, Justin Katz, say "Sunday Funday" one more time - I'm going to go fucking ape shit ballistic. GET SOME NEW FUCKING CONTENT!!! The guy literally has ZERO creativity with regard to his on-air content. What's the point of having him on the air? It's not as if th...

If he comes up just short of Ken's record, that would really, really suck.

Re: WCSX

In the last couple days, the audio processing on WCSX seems a bit cleaner than usual and I'm hearing better bass response.

Re: How Wheels 106.7 programs by the hour

Agreed. 106.7's normal playlist is garbage. Music for factory rats in their late 40s & 50s with bland, superficial taste in rock music.

When the station does Deep Cut Saturdays, the playlist sounds a helluva lot better.

Re: How Wheels 106.7 programs by the hour

The latest numbers show that they have lost market share and they are clearly altering their programming to confront a new competitor. Why is that? An FM music station will ALWAYS lose some market share when a new, in-format competitor hits the airwaves. WCSX's market share has slid only a tiny bit...

Re: Fox 2 Weather - Missing in Action?!?!

My guess is Lori Pinson's shift started at 2PM and the weather department at Fox 2 was completely unstaffed prior to then. Once Channel 2 started to actually dispense weather warning info, they did a great job. Too bad this good coverage didn't occur on a more timely basis. As a point of comparison,...

I do want to pay our local news media outlets a compliment!

For the first time in many years, I did not see any of our local news media outlets go head-over-heels orgasmic over the Mackinac policy conference. WWJ's morning team stayed in town. I don't believe any of the Big 3 on the TV side of things (2, 4, 7) sent any A-list anchors up there for extended co...

Re: Jason Dixon Exits ‘Detroit Sports 105.1.’

Drew did not want to do AM drive. In that case. 105.1 should've either went general talk instead of sports talk or should've never put Drew on the air in a prominent daypart (no pun intended!) like afternoon drive. I don't believe you answered my earlier question, btw. Drew would sound good on AM R...
