Re: WCSX

CSX needs to fire or demote Dahmer and move Donielle Flynn to afternoon drive permanently.

What a massive upgrade!!!

She's filling in while he takes vacation.

Re: Helping someone get WJBK OTA in SW Wyandotte

Menards in Bloomfield Hills starting July 7 has a cheap flat panel indoor antenna on sale for $1.99!!! Regular price is $4.99. It's a grand opening special; not sure if other Metro Detroit stores will have it on sale for that price.

Re: 103.7 WCKY

The dummies at iFart ironically continue their vain attempt to position this station as a Toledo station. It's laughable. The Bobby Bones morning show is a terrible fit for the classic country music format. Is 98.3 Nash Icon still mixing in crappy songs from the 00's & 2010's that sound horrendously...

iFart HD radio changes in Detroit

Today, 92.3 HD2 dumped Air1 and switched to a classic hip-hop and R&B format. OK, fine. Here's the one I don't understand - 106.7 HD2 dumped 90's rock in favor of a ghetto hip-hop format that more or less sounds like a rougher version of the music WJLB plays. This fucking sucks, as Smells Like the 9...

Re: Kevin Dietz out at WDIV

She used the f-bomb on the air, and not long after that, she used "ni*****" in a remote truck in front of an African American co-worker. (The n-word incident occurred when the truck was en route to the scene of a shooting in Detroit.) I honestly forgot about the f-bomb incident. She didn't know she ...

Re: Kevin Dietz out at WDIV

He said the black reporter who was present said he was not offended and came to his defense, but the station has a zero-tolerance policy about racially insensitive remarks and terminated him. Zero tolerance policy, eh? They seemed extremely tolerant of Lauren Podell's usage of one of the most vulga...

Re: 101.3 The Brew

101.3 is an abomination of a radio station. An absolute embarrassment and a microcosm of everything that is wrong with mega corporate radio. I do not know if I've ever seen a crappier rock playlist in a top 100 market. The sad thing is - iFart uses the exact same playlist on WHEB in Portsmouth, NH, ...

But since it goes to help the GOP, let's let things slide?

Re: Democratic Debates thread

Ok had a chance to watch the firey exchange between Harris and Biden over busing. Harris got the better of Biden in that exchange. HOWEVER, why are they debating policies that ended 40 or more years ago? I always thought it was allegedly conservatives who are stuck living in the past. I'm amazed th...

Re: Helping someone get WJBK OTA in SW Wyandotte

Try the cheap RCA antenna you can get at many big box stores for $10 to $15. Try positioning it in about 10 to 15 spots; even a few inch change in orientation or placement can make a world of difference as far as DTV reception goes! I also think the amazon.com antenna to which I linked earlier would...

Private equity is diving into radio again head first

Re: WLAV Tower Relocation

WGRD comes in fairly well on a car radio nearly all days until mile marker 135 on US-131. The signal hits a cliff and dives rapidly once one crosses the Muskegon River just a few miles south of Big Rapids,. With even a little bit of favorable atmospheric conditions, WGRD blasts in much farther north...

Re: Helping someone get WJBK OTA in SW Wyandotte

It's the only indoor antenna I've EVER used that's been able to pick up both CBET-DT and CICO-DT indoors, although it took very careful positioning near a south facing window to make that happen! The signal strength of WJBK using the antenna I referenced is stronger (based on my TV's dB meter) than ...
