Re: WPAY

One problem, and it's no surprise, WPAY has a programming issue, it's paid religion. Is it not? It's a very small niche of the program spectrum. And, there are literally hundreds of stations. Not exactly mass appeal!

Re: WPAY

92.1, which is pretty much useless. Yeah, the translator sounds bad. I don't know why, possibly is it the signal from the studios to the transmitter? Or, the quality of sound emitting from the transmitter? They wouldn't be pulling the off-air signal from the AM, and sending it over the air on the F...

Re: WPAY

Any word, if WPAY has been bought, yet? Nothing so far. It's telling that EMF has been unable to unload it while every other AM station they've had to buy (as a throwaway with an FM purchase) have quickly been disposed of. They seriously don't want AM signals, and presumably have had it on the bloc...

CKWW

Last night on my way home from work, I listened to CKWW. It was it's usual solid-gold format. This morning at 6:30, they were broadcasting Family Life radio. What gives? Is AM580, Family Life's clearance for Detroit? And, is only in certain dayparts? Is Family Life buying time to clear Detroit? What...

Re: JIM PRICE STINKS!!!

Let's hope for someone talented, unique, younger, and maybe, even funny. Maybe, Brandon Inge, or Joel Zumaya. Zumaya would be great for the Hispanic crowd, who historically are great baseball fans.

Re: Big changes in just released June ratings survey; WJR hits all-time record low

For evenings, bring back the one-hour "WJR SportsWrap at 7pm. Followed by Warren Pierce, Hal Youngblood, or David Newman from 8p to 11p. Followed by the "WJR News Final" at 11pm. and end the evening with the 11:15 "WJR Sports Final" with Bob Page, Paul Carey, or Bob Reynolds. Now, that's great radi...

Re: Lima's 940 WCIT Drops Sports

Adding to my post...I recall the owner was named Rice or Riggs, I don't recall. But, he had zero creativity. Both stations were bad. But, Lima only had four station back then. WCIT/WLSR? and WIMA-AM/FM. So, it wasn't hard to make money.

Re: IHeart Outages

Amazing major market stations don't have backup generators, and probably not a full-time engineering staff.

Re: Big changes in just released June ratings survey; WJR hits all-time record low

Yep, I remember Bohannon briefly on 1270. But, it was ever so briefly. Also, does anybody remember that the only place King could get cleared on was AM1310? King was King of the World talk show-wise. He was on 50,000 waters all over the country. But, had a hard time clearing Detroit!
