Re: Roy H Selling Off?

And that is worth about $250,000 based on the selling price of WKLT. I think you're being far too generous. Building is trashed, due to water pipes that froze and busted several years ago, and probably needs a bulldozer. Judging by what is heard (or not) on the 3 frequencies located there, the equi...

He would be fortunate to sell it for 20 percent of that price.
Funny you should pick that number. It's 650K, which is exactly what Roy paid for the original WBNZ.

Phil Valentine would be good. I wish WJR would dump Guy Gordon for Phil.

Re: 1130 "The Fan" to disappear- iHeart launching new network

The website Awful Announcing had an article about the format flip. Mentioning how 1130 used to be the leader of sports talk in Detroit, but had its slow downfall starting on Obama's Inauguration day in 2009 when most of the local hosts were fired. I'll have to stream it on the internet to see what ...

Re: Synergy is a mess

Synergy isn't interested in Manistee. There's no money there. WMLQ has been listed with a broker for quite some time. There's very little "synergy" between Manistee and Ludington, so I can't imagine why they would want to add another big electric bill even further north in Bear Lake.

Re: 1130 "The Fan" to disappear- iHeart launching new network

Diversity in radio is a great thing, but this smells like more fake 'woke' pandering. But WDFN has been a dead stick for a decade what do they have to lose? I'd rather see a local legit minority broadcaster turn this into a station targeting Detroit's African American community. Nine dead sticks, t...

Any of you young whippersnappers who believe this is anything close to resembling an "original idea" by IHR, do not know your history:

Foody, gone from WMXD

I had high hopes that Foody had been furloughed, and would be back, but it looks like "Sunday Night Cruisin' with Foody" has been permanently replaced by reruns of The Sweat Hotel. So much for a little local flavor on Mix 92.3. IHM sucks.

Re: North Goes South?

Are they buying the signals? I think this whole effort is in vain. if Trish (who has a sales force in northern Michigan) can't make Finster cash flow, I can't see how this group with no real presence is going to get anywhere. We're still at the reality that they are a 5th place radio group in a fie...

Re: There's a moderate risk of severe weather today, and...

Detroit's NWR station is one of the first, one of the oldest, and has just a phone line link to Southfield IIRC. They need a decent upgrade. That being said, I think NWR is one of the better things to spend your tax dollars on, and doesn't overload like cellphones when the tornado sirens go off- yo...

Re: There's a moderate risk of severe weather today, and...

I have one solution for this just turn on WWJ 950 and all your info is right there. No weather radio or cellphone needed. Not really. If WWJ were still on 8 Mile, you would be correct. WWJ is pretty much useless during a severe WX outbreak, all thanks to the "soup cans & string" STL they use, that ...

There was a time, not long ago when I could easily hear the environment Canada broadcasts here at Quarton & Telegraph. Now, I can only pick them up at our place on the St. Clair River, where Canada is a stone's throw away from our deck.
