Re: KROQ cans entire morning team

KROQ's ratings have been lackluster for a long time, not just in mornings, but throughout the week. They're tied with Class A Spanish KRCD! Considering how many stations are in the LA radio market, being T-14 isn't bad. There are several full-market commercial FMs behind them in the beauty pageant

Could 96.1 flip from sports?

With no sports until (minimum) Memorial Day, is there a chance 96.1 (and other sports stations nationwide) flip from sports to talk or even a music-based format?

Re: MLB Opening Day delayed at least two weeks

Ratings for the Summer Olympics will be through the roof, assuming they move forward like they're still claiming they will. It will be virtually the only sport on TV. Ain't gonna happen. If there's one thing I learned during my visit to Tokyo is the good people of Japan have little tolerance for co...

Re: This is the United States of America, not China

They always give the worst case scenario projections to scare people. China locked down in late January and cases have almost ceased now. If China had done their job earlier (as in recognizing there was a problem when it first came out rather than a couple of months after the fact), this wouldn't be...

Re: MLB Opening Day delayed at least two weeks

Earliest I see games being played is around May 1. I predict the schedule will be chopped up and an entirely new schedule will be drawn up. Divisional opponents normally play 19-20 games against each other in six series. If MLB were to drop divisional opponents to four series consisting of a total o...

Re: NBA suspends remainder of season

Not at all surprised. He was goofing around touching reporters' tape recorders, etc., too, as a joke just three days ago. What an asshat... For that action, Gobert should be suspended the first few games of next season. Also, if the season resumes with playoffs, the Jazz should be thrown out of the...

Still at zero concern. Media wants to scare people. The stores love it- more money! You really are a dope. Italy has locked down the ENTIRE COUNTRY for a month. Italy has a very old population (older than that of the US). Among European countries, UK, Ireland, and eastern Europe seem to not be affe...

What is airing on 98.9 FM right now? Did it switch to K-Love, or is the station off the air for the moment? As of 11:45 PM 98.9 Petoskey is silent,but 6000 watt EZ listening WEMP is booming in here like a semi local here on the east side of Traverse. In Manistee, WEMP has usually been in with a wea...

Was driving thru southern benzie county and they both are broadcast in low power. 99.3 is def weaker then 92.3. 92.3 is still some sort of rock format. 99.3 is timeless 99. An oldies format.

If I were buying WFDX, my strategy would be to apply to the FCC for an STA to operate at reduced power, keep the Petoskey translator in operation, apply to the FCC to reduce class status and change COL, and propose a Class A allotment to Atlanta to backfill the "loss of service."

Re: MGB went to the Sale Rack and found WSRT

Hard to believe that WLDR was sold back in the early 2000s for $3.8 million (and that 100kW central-market signal might be worth $200k today). Based on the Northern sale prices, it's not a question of if any licenses will not be renewed, it's a question of how many will not be renewed. Speaking of C...
