Re: Cumulus stunner - two heritage Hot AC stations in major markets SOLD (note: WDVD not involved)

When I caught this story, my first thought was 'Well, is Detroit in the crosshairs?" So I'm glad MW brought it up; it's compelling and relevant to this market. Interesting they're holding onto to WABC as of now. Would they keep WJR, which makes a ton of cash for the company, as a stand alone and spi...

Re: Is Detroit Radio Boring or What?

Like most things, boring is subjective. What makes radio exciting to you? This Breeze dreck you all think is the greatest bores me to death, and I honestly forget they exist most days. I will say Detroit is one of the better markets IMHO. New York, LA and Chicago, with the exception of a station or ...

These topics grow to 15 threads of you basically greeting each other.
Frankly who cares?

Re: Who's In-charge At Entercom

Sometime Saturday afternoon, WOMC finally cleaned up its muddy-as-hell audio. Station sounds normal again. Historically their audio has always blown. For 190,000 they sound like a rimshot signal at times, very thin and no 'punch". It's been downright unlistenable lately. I have not listened this we...

Re: Groundhog Day 2019: Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow.

Most important of all: Did 'Cowboy' see his shadow? Do we get 6 more weeks of his insipid ramblings?
I'd rather have the 6 more weeks of winter.

Re: Fall 2018 Nielsen Audio Quarterly Report ANN ARBOR

As someone who lived in rural Washtenaw Co. for years, I'll pass along that outside of W4, everyone listens to Detroit radio. The top 3 stations numbers reflect A2/Ypsi proper listening habits. Off campus, different story. Ironic that one of the most irrelevant stations in Detroit is the only one th...

Jim is an excellent broadcaster. My favorite gig of his was PM drive on WNIC.

I tried calling the studio line (313-298-9870) to talk to her, but she didn't pick-up
Voice tracked probably. If she didn't do live service elements (weather, time etc) it was canned.

Re: TV Personalities Moving To Radio

It rarely translates. Ever heard the Mario Lopez abomination on 'NIC? Now, if you're a radio personality that moves to TV, then BACK to radio, say like Towers, different story. Theorectly they understand the medium. TV people don't get it. With respect to Steve and Joanne, whom I enjoyed on TV, hear...

I've honestly never heard of her, and I watch 4 quite a bit.
So yet another rare radio job goes to a non-radio person.
Bravo.

They have to realize us old farts spend tons of money. You're both right. They take trips. They are one of the few demos that regularly buy cars, boats, motorcycles, and own property up north.

Re: 98.7 The Breeze just ruined itself with new RnB playlist

Most offices don’t even tune in terrestrial radio due to reception issues with computers and being surrounded by metal, every office I’ve been in it’s always satellite radio and usually a Soft Rock Channel. So as far as 98.7 is concerned good luck trying to attract the office female, most women are...

Re: 98.7 The Breeze (Soft AC) is here!

Well, because if he gives his name then people will realize the station is putting in zero effort by making the building's operations manager do the morning show. You might be over thinking it a bit, junior. Your average listener doesn't know Tim Roberts is the OM of a bunch of stations and doesn't...
