Re: WDRV now #1 in Chicago

ook up radio is still strong from Jacobs Media 91 percent of the population listen to radio,
Many Jacobs Media surveys have sample bias and are not conducted in scientifically sound fashion.

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

WJR now has a worse AQH share in ages 6+ than 890 WLS in Chicago!!! WLS is slowly rising (in a market where more mainstream choices for spoken word programming exist than Detroit) and is now at its best mark in probably several years whereas WJR's numbers have quickly plummeted. My PPM encoding comm...

Re: WDRV now #1 in Chicago

The Drive's stationality has always been too laid back for my taste. They do have a decent morning show, though. With most of the market having no access to Active Rock on the FM dial and the market's other longtime classic rock station being long gone, grabbing a 5.4 share frankly doesn't impress m...

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

Holy shit. Some PPM encoding equipment must be malfunctioning for the once almighty WJR to have age 6+ numbers this piss poor! They are now barely outperforming 91.7 WUOM, a station whose city grade signal reaches maybe 25 percent of the market's population. Seriously, how does a venerable talk stat...

Re: Guy Gordon - Epic FAIL

Look at JR's ratings (just released)... Talk about trainwrecks!!! Mr. Gordon perhaps is a large reason behind the ratings plunge? I cannot recall the last time I've seen so many FM music stations in Detroit with a 4 share or better. The recent format changes certainly seem to be succeeding. On top o...

Re: Server response issues when posting

Quick update: I've done everything I can do (short of completely disabling Cloudflare) and my hosting company has done everything it can do at this point to improve server response time when posting. While I think complete disablement of Cloudflare would help greatly, it would make the Buzzboard far...

Re: WSB Atlanta

750 will stay as-is and when AM radio becomes widely unavailable in newer cars, they'll basically sell the station for scrap value. That's my prediction.

Re: My endorsements for City of Warren primaries

Sadly, I think Fouts will win easily.

There are no statewide or federal races on the ballot. That means turnout will overly consist of Caucasian senior citizens. Most of those folks adore Fouts and cannot reconcile what they hear on those tapes with the man they think they know.

Re: Dayton Shooting

I find it interesting that by and large the press has ignored the fact he was a Warren supporter and continue to heap blame on the current president. Wonder why they are glossing this fact over? Ok, I take that back, I am not wondering just sad they are this transparent in their agenda. Agreed. Ver...

Re: Texas mass shooting

In terms of dealing with mental health issues relative to gun ownership, I'd be OK with a federal "red flag" law in lieu of my idea for widespread mental health screening for would-be gun buyers. This idea appears to be gaining momentum, and it would be a major step in the right direction. Certainly...

Re: Mike Sullivan Gone from 97.1

Who cares. The guy contributed nothing on-air. Had the most annoying voice; his live reads were cringe worthy.

Entercom is cutting overhead all over the country. Their earnings have sucked ass and their stock performance has been abysmal over the past 12 months.

Re: Dayton Shooting

I think MW is personally offended that the murderer in Dayton self identified as a "metalhead".
Indeed, I am!!!
