Re: Jo Purtin

I don't know if she was in the hospital. But I know her sister who worked for ABC radio and they look nothing alike.

Re: Cumulus Bankruptcy

I don't know the numbers but with major debt relief will Cumulus operate profitably from stations/businesses revenue?

Re: Unprofessional Fox 2 anchors this morning

I don't consider FOX2 newscasters are professional, It starts in the morning with disc jockey Jay Tower as a morning news anchor. It goes down from their.

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.

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...

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.
