Re: WJR shits the bed again...this time with a 2.2 share!

Guy Gordon is nearly unlistenable. He either needs a co-host, or they need to pull the plug. Guy is frequently "schooled" by his callers. Listening to his show is like watching a train wreck or a plane crash in instant replay. Frank Beckmann may be a legend in sports, but falls short as a current ev...

Re: WONB 94.9fm Lima Ohio Sold

Colleges do not want to own radio stations anymore. The majority of students have very little interest in a career in broadcasting. The other problem is the FCC. With the "public file" now online, the FCC can simply go in and cherry pick a small fortune in violations. (Oh! Lookie here, third quarter...

Re: Townsquare Media

The notion that Cumulus and iHeart would have even a modicum of interest in Traverse City - Petoskey is silly. I cannot see any scenario where iHeart or Cumulus would want to enter the market. iHeart has avoided tiny markets like the plague in recent years; Cumulus only takes on small market statio...

Re: Amy D fired from K100?

Microwave from XKR should be bulletproof. I'd bet on microwave over the flimsy internet anytime. Is the path direct to Arlington, or is there a hop in the middle?

Re: Amy D fired from K100?

I thought Andy Stuart was able to justify keeping Timmy and Becky by having them VT two other stations while they were on their 93.5 shift? Is that no longer the case? Bill Stewart's voicetracking is so obvious, it's horrible. So what's the deal, BS gets one hour pay to VT 4 hours? Bye Amy- you tho...

Re: HD 2 and 3 stations

I have an HD radio, but have never hooked it up. Is 98.7 still offering Smooth Jazz on one of their HD channels?

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

Time to blow-up the station. Christmas music would be a great start. There is no "listen at work" station in Toledo anymore, and that's what is needed with a lite station, or go for the gold, and take the Bob Kelly idea - listening to LPFM 97.7 - for a high school 100watt station, damn good program...

Re: 101.9 wldr

Any update on Roy's condition? Roy has a beautiful home on Lake Conroe, north of Houston. Not that I sympathize with Roy as a wayward broadcaster, but I am certain he would rather be home than in a hospital bed in freezing cold Grand Rapids.

The Inside/Outside Guys basically replaced Glenn Haege (America's Master Handyman) when he passed away. They're not bad, but they're not Glenn. Cheap substitutes at best.

My guess would be some sort of paid programming. Say what you will about Warren. At least he was a local voice.

Re: 101.9 wldr

Roy isn't the only clown in this clown show. What kind of a knucklehead enters into a LMA for radio stations that are technically impossible to operate? The WBNZ site was designed for ONE station, not three. There would have to be a plan in place to correct this deficiency, and I don't think there e...

Those prices are unbelievably cheap!!!

I presume no owner-occupied real estate is included in either case.
My moles tell me the WMTE real estate and tower is included. Somewhere around 8 acres. As the old saying goes, the value is in the land.
