Re: Bernie's Stint

Bernie is toast. Not many will vote for an elderly man who just suffered a heart attack for an office as important as the Presidency. Look for Elizabeth Warren and possibly Beto O'Rourke to be the primary beneficiaries of Mr. Sanders' health woes. Things are looking better & better for Warren in thi...

Re: Amber Guyger

While I'm pleased to see she was convicted, the sentence is too light, IMO.

She could be eligible for parole in as soon as five years, which is absurd.

Re: Sean Baligian?

You can join me in my monthly quest to beg Cumulus (or whoever ends up owning it) to flip 93.1 to sports. They have the Lions and Michigan State broadcasting rights can could get University of Michigan over the next couple of years to add to it. There are solid personalities out there, like Baligia...

Re: Andy Stuart out?

Then he pissed me off by turning-in the license to AM1470 without so much as allowing the Dickeys to sell it crippled, or ever build the AM facility that they applied for 1560 and 1470 in SW Toledo, but traded away the daytimer 1560 for the 100.7 signal, so nobody invested in a ground system for 14...

Re: The WLLZ Fix List.

I'm sorry, but WLLZ has got to get rid of the Bryan Adams, Journey, Boston and Queen shit in order to compel me to listen to that station with any sort of regularity. That said, the new artist adds are a step in the right direction. If you're gonna proclaims yourselves as the "Next Generation of Cla...

Re: The Neilsen #13 Detroit September PPM

WLLZ's cume is down by about 100,000 persons from one survey ago. Not good if that trend persists. Lost about 15% of their unique listener count month over month. Simple math suggests WRIF's TSL is significantly better than that of WLLZ. My guess is extended listening during Dave & Chuck helps WRIF ...

Re: WWJ signal problems?

In the Midland and Bay City area this afternoon, 760 WJR was stronger in my car than both 910 WFDF and 950 WWJ (the latter two were roughly equal in signal strength to each other...910 seemed a tiny bit stronger in the Auburn area). Also, WFDF and WWJ were only modestly stronger than Ann Arbor's 105...

Re: Fox2 job postings

I think Lori does a terrific job. I like their whole crew at Fox 2 really.

They don't resort to idiotic chicken little tactics like Rexroth and Bailey.

Re: LAV STA/application status

I picked up WLAV late yesterday morning until mile marker 136 on US 131. Signal went downhill super fast after that. There was a bit of a band opening. GR stations were coming in a tiny bit better than usual. Traverse City stations, on the other hand, were coming in much stronger than usual. 101.9, ...

Re: LAV STA/application status

Wow, that is a long way off still.

Why not run 97.5 at reduced power via STA so WLAV can complete its upgrade sooner?

I'd be stunned if 97.5 bills more than 6 or 7 percent of what WLAV bills.

Anyway, thanks for the info. :)

Re: LAV STA/application status

WLAV is coming in crystal clear indoors in Byron Twp. Not a surprise, as even 98.3 Holy Family Radio tunes in easily on that same receiver. WLAV is a bit stronger here from the GVSU site than its longtime Egypt Valley site. Will be fun to see how powerful the signal gets once they crank up to full p...
