ENTERCOM STATIONS OFF THE AIR !

Post by riggs » Mon Dec 17, 2018 10:23 am

Right after 10am this morning all the Entercom stations went down

I guess the management was cooking a elaborate breakfast for the entire staff and they plugged one too many griddles in and shorted everything. The on-air generators were still working for awhile but now all the stations are off the air, and I think that includes the online streams as well.

Bad time of year to lose spots, even for half an hour.

See, as a good manager will tell you - if you are soft on your staff they get lazy and stop working. Never do anything nice for them! In fact, every chance you get make sure you remind them of how they are lucky to have a job and there are 10 qualified people that would do just as well for less money.........................Oh, wait, this isn't I Hate Media........................For a minute there, I lost myself.

They went off around 10:00 in the middle of The Glory of Love by Peter Cetera on The Breeze. Just went dead.

Ooh! Maybe ALL Entercom stations are flipping to Gregorian Chants! YOU ALL DOUBTED ME! Lol

I hope they get back running, soon. Gotta have my WWJ on the drive home.

This techno-mishap snuffed out their ability to serve as the hub of the Michigan News Network, as well.

I remember a visiting cook hooking up a griddle at the Grand Rapids cluster of Clear Channel in early 2000, then going into a studio for an interview. Butter, or something burning on the hot surface got a lot of smoke rolling in the ninth-floor hallway, no disaster, but if the sprinklers had been triggered and had gone off over all those computers...

On the WWJ Newsradio Facebook page, morning anchor Tom Jordan does a five minute newscast while standing in front of their building!

And it's back with Fleetwood Mac on The Breeze, but crackly.

Edit: it's back out again.

I'll venture a guess...no generator at the old Panasonic building?

Yesterday the Breeze kept cutting in and out and Going silent for 30 seconds at a time so I knew something weird was going on / going to happen.

I wonder what happened though, because even if the power did go out they have generaters...
