Re: WDVD is playing too much kiddie music

WDVD still plays jingles. I heard several today, including the top of every hour, so... As for music, current wise they pretty much match the media base HOT AC chart. I also wonder if they've lost some white females to Bounce, which has moved much more mainstream in the last several weeks. They seem...

Re: Source: Cumulus Detroit is for sale...

Would Bonneville or Lincoln Financial want to get into the Detroit media market on the radio side? Nah. Lincoln Financial is out of the business I believe, and Bonneville is mainly a west coast operator. I'd love to see Saga come in. Anyone know if they're still based here? They were but never had ...

Re: Source: Cumulus Detroit is for sale...

WJR is a cash cow for Cumulus, I don't see any scenario where they part with it in the near future.
They seem to be keeping the legacy AM's in NYC and LA as well.
My guess if there is a sale, it's to unload WDRQ.

Re: Bernie the Blooper Boy :Perhaps SIX decades at WDIV .

Why does Bernie Smilovitz' hackneyed sportscasts seeming escape criticism ? Yes,he seems a good dude,but Smilovitz,who must be close to my age (sixty-five) will have been on WDIV throughout SIX DECADES (70's,80's,90's,00's,10's,20's) should he hit the airwaves on and after Jan. 1,2020. Like Valenti...

Re: Hey WDRQ, Why Don’t You Do All 90’s

Could it work? Rewind WDRQ All 90’s Radio for Detroit, Remember WDRQ was hot in the 90’s. What do you think? Not a horrible idea, but that could potently overlap with DVD, so zero chance it happens. IMHO, the market for 90's nostalgia isn't strong enough to support a 90's format...yet. SXM has a 90...

There is ZERO chance that Cumulus is going to flip to Sports. Cumulus would have to spend a TON of money on talent to compete with 97.1

3) They’re simply gonna run Gnash as an even cheaper operation.

Bingo

Re: 106.7 FAKE WHEELS is out of touch with its audience (shocking, I know)

What sucks about FAKE WHEELS is 101 WRIF has now inserted a bunch of butt rock it had jettisoned back into rotation. I'm talking Whitesnake, Black Crowes, more Motley Crue, Skid Row, etc. BARF!!! Music wise, 101 WRIF was starting to sound damn good. It's unfortunate to see them regress like this. H...

No they won't.
They'll get some sampling for sure, but when people figure out it's the same shit different station, it's back to regular listening habits.

So nothing about Nash is even remotely local now.

They are local Midday and PM Drive still.
