Re: Election Day predictions thread

As someone who once worked in corporate for a large auto insurer, I can verify that no fault kills rates in Michigan. Florida runs a type of no-fault lite, and their rates are also horrible. Having Detroit in your state doesn’t help either.

Re: Detroit Nielsen radio ratings are out

WCSX and WOMC command 15.5% of all radio listening in this market right now. Can someone please remind me again why a third classic rock or classic hits-type station does not exist in this market? Local voices + decent morning show + recognizable music = easy ratings. https://ratings.radio-online.c...

Re: Dave and Chuck the Freak show expands southward

That said, their ratings in Boston are lousy (Alt 92.9 in general is a complete shit show). Beasley did a great job of taking a sledgehammer to Alt 92.9, which had pretty decent ratings pre-D&C. Putting that kind of morning show on a music-based “Mall-ternative” station was a terrible move. At leas...

So now that the streak has reached 11 games, is it an appropriate time to post this gem from just two weeks ago?

According to Mr. Bosio, it was over him referring to a player by his nickname “Spider Monkey” and a black employee overheard it and went to management.

Re: Alt 106.7 - 6 months in

Classic Alternative has been tried in a few markets- I can think of Houston and Denver. Both failed miserably and ended up mixing in more recurrent material before flipping. MW, interesting that you mention KXRK/SLC. I’ve always been amused that a morning show called “Radio From Hell” could do so we...

Aaaaaaannnnndddd...down goes Miggy. As much as I’ve enjoyed Miggy’s tenure in Detroit (at least the early part of it), this is exhibit A on why I hate long-term deals, especially when the deal covers after the age of 30.

Re: 2018 Detroit Tigers

They’ve played well against teams below .500 and given that division, they’ll have plenty of opportunities with teams below .500. Hopefully they can do well in this 8 game stretch against playoff contenders- they split the doubleheader with NYY- if they can win 3-4 games against Boston and Cleveland...

102.7 WPZR to EMF (K-Love)

Well, hate to burst Brian’s bubble, but no Z Rock on 102.7. EMF, however, has stepped in to pick up the station for $12 million. Maybe he’ll accept K-Love instead :P

I drove up for the Tigers game this afternoon and while driving on 94, it was all preaching a little east of Romulus. Very pissed off, as I greatly prefer 107one to anything Detroit or Windsor have to offer.

Re: Chicago’s The Loop to become K-Love

I read somewhere that EMF will retain the call letters for this station.

Edit: Spoke too soon. The WLUP call letters will also become a thing of the past as soon as Saturday rolls around. I’m at least a little surprised they didn’t pick up 101.1 to give Air-1 a nice signal in Market #3.

Re: Chicago’s The Loop to become K-Love

If I had to venture a guess, K-Love goes to 97.9. Air-1 goes to 94.3.

It will be interesting to see where WKQX goes.

Re: Detroit Nielsen audio ratings - January survey

What they should’ve done was rebrand the station as “106.7 the Lake” once they shifted formats. As good of a brand as “the D” would have been for the market, it had been long associated with almost the exact opposite of what their female target wanted to hear, so it never really gained traction.
