Re: Beautiful music stations

Very interesting discussion. Certainly a format that will earn ears. What current format has too many stations? Please remember we ain't a op 10 market. The format would require little managment and a salesforce with little skills.

Re: R.I.P. Jimmy Launce (WJR for 38 years)

Jimmy was a good guy. Personality radio after Jim. I look back at radio when local personalities where the measure of a market; that isn't the case any longer. When you look at WJR ratings the winners are Paul W. and Mitch-- Syndicated stuff doesn't win.

Re: Jeff Vaugan Promoted in LA

Normally station management comes from the sales side; that's where the dollars come from. But does salesperson have creative skills?

Jeff Vaugan Promoted in LA

eff was really fired here and became main anchor at CBS owned KCAL-TV in LA. KCAL is the #2 CBS station in LA. The number one CBS O&O is KCBS. Today Jeff was promoted to full-time main anchor for KCBS -- It's a big deal for Jeff. Here we are in Detroit that couldn't find an anchor for WXYZ male in t...

Re: Best on_air team rapport?

WXYZ thought moving Keenan Smith into an anchor spot would work maybe surprised. Frankly, I'm not a fan of Keenan. He is top a top 10-12 market talent. Now he has moved up to anchor and it's worth. When it comes to a report he loses his place, when he comes to non-in structure he doesn't know what t...

Re: May 2018 Detroit Radio Ratings

I can't believe WJR can't come close to the double digit ratings of 20 years ago; Cumulus has to try really hard to have numbers that low. They really should have gone all-out to get the Tigers, whatever the cost, as that was a guaranteed listen in not SE Mich, but NW Ohio as well. All of Cumulus' ...

By 2025 in Michigan, seniors will outnumber people under 18. So it makes sense that WCSX and WOMC are #1. Michigan is slowly dying off. We are the fastest aging state in the nation.
Classic Hit stations in Top 20 markets are all in top 5. It ain't just Michigan.

Re: Ex 89X/River Jock/PD Phat Matt lands at Country 95.9

Think many do not accept a jock in one format cannot work in another. Reality is that isn't true. We've seen this time and again in Detroit and nationally. You're a successful radio voice/personality working at a station with a specific format that doesn't mean you can't work another format. From my...

Re: Another Prince Another Wedding

I watched. Everyday news is very depressing including today's news from Texas. The wedding events was a big break from all the problems. Must admit I have always been a big fan of Megan. She has one of the great butts on TV. Costumes on Suits made sure that was featured.

It's Sorry For Me To Accept

Sometimes we forget we’re a much smaller market than we were but of rated 210 markets we are # 13 – Ain’t bad but I think TV and radio owners see us as “mature” market with limited income resulting in little investment. No longer. Without question Entercom’s WOMC made a real investment with Clark an...

Re: Tom Joyner returns to 105.9 Kiss

In reality no changes make any difference in ears. Demos might change but that's all. The only change may be in rates. Most buys are local without demo issue.You look at 6-month to one year ratings nothing changes. Local talent is stagnant. WOMC in AM will be interesting but I don't think a major ra...
