Re: CSX back to #1

I disagree, JLesinski. Very little has changed with WLLZ's general music formula since the March 2019 launch; I've only noticed minor tweaks. It's the same fiery trainwreck of mostly 80's & 90's songs smashed together that it's always been. On occasion, a late 60's, 70's, or early 00's song will pla...

Re: Zippo In The Morning

He worked for one of the satellite Oldies networks often found on small/unrated market stations in the early & mid 90's.

The old 92.3 WKGH in Allegan carried his morning show.

The implicit bias training is a ridiculous E.O. that will result in wasted tax dollars and will do nothing to improve health outcomes.

Lucky615 - I thought you had respiratory issues???

People who do not vaccinate once it is proven safe to do so should be charged much higher insurance premiums (just as smokers and heavy drinkers are charged more).

Re: Beginning to think Fox 2 has a liberal agenda

Amy is an airhead. A couple mornings ago around the 6:12 weather check, she commented it "was already in the 80s outside." Alan tried covering for her; pretty pitiful to watch. The true temp was only 71 (said so right on the screen in the logo bug), and many outlying areas were only in the mid to up...

Re: "Redskins" to be renamed

Dan Snyder probably likes that name because it's associated with championships (i.e. the NBA's Golden State Warriors). Too bad the horrible Redskins are more like the 2019/2020 version of the Warriors than the squads from the preceding five seasons! "Weasels" would have been my choice for a new name...

Re: More Cumulus Layoffs

While a handful of on-air people and programmers have been identified nationally, I suspect most of the headcount reduction will be concentrated within Westwood One.

Re: H*** Covid surge in Tulsa

Wearing a face mask in public is paralysis, bmw? If the pessimistic hypotheticals you listed come to pass, the American economy will adapt. Our economy is resilient. I am not proposing keeping eveything closed. I am merely advocating mask wearing, social distancing, and other common sense precaution...

Non mask wearers who are otherwise healthy should be fined to help defray the massive cost burden our medical organizations are incurring due to their irresponsible behavior.

Disband what? The incorporation of the city?

I would have no issue with that, but Genesee County might not be so fond of that idea.

Re: 97.1

1130 simulcasted the afternoon show from 96.1 in G.R. for several years until a couple weeks ago. No one cared.

It will be (sorta) interesting to see if the Baligian morning show pops up on 1270.
