Re: Karen Savelly out @ CSX

Haven’t listen to her for a long time. Yes, she’s been in the market for a long time but many other factors effect this decision. By now assume she makes a lot of money. We don’t know the hour-by-hour ratings and she hasn’t been caring her weight. Sure, cutting cost makes sense but if she was pullin...

Re: Then, there's this.....

Dave L has been doing the stop and go for years. Don't remember if that was the case when he did sports. He also does it with stand-ups. As for anchors available there are a ton. This is only one agent. You'll note most are in substantially smaller markets.

Don't remember at WJR or WAAM I was surprised Glenn didn't own a house lived in a condo.

Re: WJR and Other Conservative Talkers

Curious thing that it's only partisan when it's conservative. Just sayin'. Nobody said that but liberal talk is virtually non existent anyways... And it's partisan because that's been virtually all they've aired for 15 years or so... it's a part of the stations identity now... I would submit that m...

WJR and Other Conservative Talkers

Advertisers are staying away from conservative talk. Spoke with a GM about 6 months ago in a small market (no ratings listed) that he airs Rush. Problem is advertisers don’t want to buy the show. If I was Lou Perry Dodge why would I put the dealership with a political program that makes the dealersh...

New on-air talent, shows for the Bounce

Detroit News Starting Saturday, 105.1 the Bounce (WMGC-FM) will add new voices to the station’s weekend lineup. Cortney Hicks will be the new “ambassador” from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. She has experience not only on Detroit airwaves, but in Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Charlotte, North ...

Re: Top billing radio stations in Detroit (estimated)

Remember we are now market #12. Less price per spot. Moreover radio has more completion with internet page ads and more. I even get Varsity Ford ads on my phone such as NYTimes. Again, if stations had strong unique talent the audience and revenue would go up.

Re: Jimmy Barrett Moves To Houston

Jimmy is one of the good guys. While at JR supported him through his divorce back then. He's been a very strong conservative on-air voice and now he can do that in a larger market. When was at WAAM he recorded my program opening.

Re: 7 Adds Alan Campbell As A Reporter

Maybe I'm wrong but 7 goes through talent often. I see this as a mistake. Research shows people stay with a newscast not for anchors but field reporters. Think Carman leaving with no change. Heretofore XYZ has been smart in hiring people with MI connection.

Re: Dream Cruise....Derp Derp

Surprising to me Army buddies from all over US aren't coming to the Cruz after coming for years. They say the Cruz is same old same old so not coming. I lived in Birmingham for 20 years three blocks from Woodward with people wanting to park in our driveway. I'm not a fan.

Quite Changes at WXYZ

Not good with names but there was a black anchor doing some street reporting who is now gone. Frankly I wasn’t a fan. Also, Keenan Smith is now anchoring a lot. For me XYZ has a very strong news operation why should a weather guy doing news. Why him? Seems news director isn’t managing for success bu...

I was just hearing this on the news today and whole thing feels like publicity stunt for Swift. She is suing for $1.

How did Mueller touch her bare butt? She goes commando during her shows? :red
Yes as it has been reported.
