Andy Stuart out?

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.

Andy Stuart out?

Post by BASProShop » Tue Oct 01, 2019 10:05 pm

Heard a rumor that Andy Stuart has permanently left the Cumulus Toledo building. Anyone have any confirmation?

Those that might be "in the know" are confirming this on background. Wondering how nervous Denny S and Jonny D are this morning?

Well... if this is 100% true then I am not surprised. The Toledo Cluster looks awful, XKR,RQN,and K 100 are fine, but the rest of is an epic mess. 105.5 at a 1 share, 106.5 and 100.7 are not going to be bread winners but my god there pathetic. Clearly, something isn't working here in terms of direction.

Not to defend Andy, as I have never met him, and was long gone before he ever arrived on the Toledo radio scene, but it seems to me, he's not doing too badly if the 3 main stations are on top. 105.5 needs to be fixed, certainly, but a lousy rimshot that barely covers 50% of the metro (106.5) and a flimsy translator will never be a factor no matter who is running the show.

Was there a staff meeting today? Are more details available yet? Inquiring minds want to know.

Picture from the Toledo Blade article today shows the paper can't be bothered by sending someone out to take a current picture.Image

To be fair, it's credited as "Cumulus Radio building on Arlington Avenue in Toledo, Thursday, May 22, 2014." The only thing that's changed are the station logos. Otherwise it's technically current.

Except for 1470, of course. There’s also the fact WMIM is “technically” a Monroe station.

FYI, formats have nothing to do with the GM. The GM is basically the SENIOR Sales manager and HR manager. Format VP's, formerly called consultants, are in charge of formats, station momentum and psychology, along with PD moves from station to station or market to market. Bad signals are between the Engineering Dept and the FCC, as funded. Same goes for bad audio and chain processing.

I suggest a call or email to the responsible party listed above for the appropriate issue.

Few people were aware 1470 ever existed or that it died.

Since Tower 98.3 was blown up, no one has been aware of WMIM's existence, either.

Andy Stuart always brings back the memories that he was with WVKS in the early. At the same time Ken Benson was the PD at WRQN and used the on-air name of Andy Stuart.

His "editorials" used to run on all the Clear Channel stations regardless of format. You'd be listening to WIOT and all of a sudden "I'm Andy Stuart. Michael Bell must be the next mayor of Toledo!". At least he dialed back on that stuff at Cumulus

I remember another odd move of his not long before he left CC, he had Johny D doing a sports show on 1230 for only one hour every day.
