106.5 Toledo

A place to go for those of you who wish to discuss happenings in OH, IN, IL, WI, and Ontario. OSU sucks, by the way.

The Tigers have been off of Toledo radio for 3 years now and the sun has continued to rise. Clearing the Tigers to air wouldn't make 106.5 any more likely to be sold.

Very few people give two rips about listening to a garbage team like the Tigers (even if there *were* an actual baseball season right now).

The Indians are the only major league team who should be available on local radio in Toledo.


Rock 95.5 in Chicago is the worst sounding major market rock station in the history of corporate radio.

I definitely agree! No one's going to miss anything as long as they are bad. It's not time to put them back on Toledo airwaves. As soon as they become competitive again, then that's when a radio station here should start attempting to buy rights to the games.

You'd have to think any halfway decent offer would be accepted. It's a shitty signal in what was already a depressed market before the worst economy in 80 years hit with the pandemic. It could very likely just keep running ESPN Radio for 23 hours a day for many, many years unless ESPN Radio itself is shut down, anything is possible in a negative way.

The trouble with 106.5 is the proximity to the airport, and therefore, the need to use a shorter tower. Out near the airport is the only place it meets all of the mileage separation requirements, so it is what it is.
