Exactly how bad does it have to get ratings and billing wise before Cume-less dumps GNASH-FM? What does rock bottom look like before they either change formats or rebrand the station?

WLLZ's cume is down by about 100,000 persons from one survey ago. Not good if that trend persists. Lost about 15% of their unique listener count month over month.

Simple math suggests WRIF's TSL is significantly better than that of WLLZ. My guess is extended listening during Dave & Chuck helps WRIF a lot. For the week, WRIF has a 50% higher Average Quarter Hour share than WLLZ even though its unique listener count is only ~22% higher than that of WLLZ.

Clearly, the typical WRIF listener spends more time with WRIF than the typical WLLZ listener spends with WLLZ.

WJR remains a dumpster fire, 105.9 Kiss is in rough shape, and I gotta say WDVD and WYCD are exhibiting some softness, too.

Upset about what? I know the Detroit TV DMA is falling. It’s been for decades. Go away troll.

Back to the actual topic at hand, which lower rated station switches formats next? A bold move for WDVD or WDRQ would be to go Christmas just before Halloween to perk up those numbers. It might give WNIC a run for their money.

Suck it fake wheels. I hope your downward trend continues. Play the stuff you should be playing and not tired safe songs everyone has heard a million times. We have WCSX for that.

I usually stay out of ratings discussions, but I can’t help but notice the impressive cume for The Breeze, especially with a 3.9 rating. Their TSL has to be through the roof (or h-u-g-e).

Note to WGN... bring back Steve Cochran ASAP.

Format This - you're wrong about 98.7's TSL. It's not that great.

Look at the numbers again.

Their TSL is weaker than all of the rock & classic rock stations, WOMC, WYCD, WDRQ, all of the Urban stations, and even WKQI.

Nah.
I have no idea or care about DRQ, but I'm sure DVD's female numbers are just fine. 6+ beauty contest numbers don't mean dick.

Any chance Beasly could/would take on a news/talk like WJR and torpedo it into something decent? That great signal going to waste. And in just 10 years WXYT-AM has managed to become totally irrelevant- you would think that they could play sound effects for Halloween and get a 0.1 share?

1270 has nothing local except the required public affairs show and maybe something brokered on Sunday morning. People in Detroit don’t care much about national sports.
