Re: WLNS-TV Sold out in Auction

Answered my own question - both stations are using the Onondaga (Rives Junction) site.

Re: WLNS-TV Sold out in Auction

I'm confused; are both WLAJ & WLNS using the tower near Onondaga or the tower near Okemos ?

Re: New Meteorologist Just in Time

Certainly that break-in on WLAJ wasn't Erik's call. Someone on the Lansing board claimed WLNS/WLAJ (at least at the time) lacked the proper technology to allow for break-ins on one station only. Sister station WLNS has heavy viewership in the Howell area. Still, it sucks that the football game on WL...

Re: Alt 106.7 - 6 months in

KLOS was indeed a straight-up Mainstream Rock outlet for most of 2016, but they reverted to a Classic Rock playlist quite a while back.

These days, their playlist is not all that different from what 106.7 The D played prior to its migration to Variety Hits.

Re: Sync 3 v3.0 upgrade issues, a/k/a Ford's tech people are MORONS!!!

Maps, music and easy functionality are at the top of my "must have" list. In terms of the makes that TC Talks mentioned, I'd be curious to know which of those have Apple Car Play and/or Android Auto compatibility. Ford's Sync technology will not directly replicate the map I have on the phone, but if...

Re: WKNR AM 850 Cleveland

It was certainly much more powerful than usual here in Metro Detroit last night as well. Lots of fading, but when the signal was "on," it was booming. No sign of anything else on the frequency last night.

No meaningful difference in the daytime signal here compared to normal.

Re: Sync 3 v3.0 upgrade issues, a/k/a Ford's tech people are MORONS!!!

Out of curiosity - which version of Sync did your car have? Was it the dreadful MyFordTouch (Sync 2.0) ? MF Touch sucked so bad because it had zero app support!!! In many ways, it was a downgrade from the original Sync. Don't get me wrong, MF Touch (at least for me) always worked as intended, it jus...

Re: Alt 106.7 - 6 months in

Today's version of "Alternative" is a garbage radio format. In market after market, it is getting its ASS KICKED in the ratings by Active Rock or Heritage Rock stations. Examples: Detroit Boston (Alt 92.9 has lower ratings in Boston than the Active Rock station from Worcester) Minneapolis (Compare 9...

Re: Very interesting proposals from NAB

I think it's a lousy proposal, personally. NAB = National Association of Bastards. The whole purpose of this proposal is to gin up M&A activity and to give a short to medium term boost to corporate radio stock prices. Would not shock me if Entercom and Cumulus want to "wed."

He's losing in ratings to Live PD and SportsCenter. He had to say something ridiculous to remind people that he still exists. Not exactly a fair comparison. HBO is a premium channel requiring a $15.00 month/subscription (assuming it's not obtained as part of a limited time promotion). Weekly prime ...

Re: Schuilling V. H***

92.1 MHz on the FM dial in the Lansing area has been a disgrace for damn near 15 years straight. I long for the days when it was 92.1 The Edge - a station that actually earned decent ratings. I'm having a hard time deciding which station is a bigger abortion - 92.1 or 92.9? While I'm ragging on Midw...

Sync 3 v3.0 upgrade issues, a/k/a Ford's tech people are MORONS!!!

I love how the morons at Ford push out a software package to upgrade from Sync 3 version 2.x to Sync 3 version 3.0 with apparently zero awareness to the fact many Ford 2016 Sync 3 modules lack sufficient cache space to be able to run the update!!! From what I've read, calling Ford's tech support hot...

They're perfect since Cabrera's injury.

Their W-L record WITHOUT Cabrera is considerably better than WITH Cabrera this year.

I heard from a co-worker that Fault 106.7's "Band Camp" concert (ya know, the one they were plugging for several months on the air?) was nowhere near sold out, and in fact, lawn tickets had been reduced to $7 weeks before the show due to lack of interest. :lol

Re: Are there programming changes at CKLW?

I realize the station's programming isn't geared toward the folks on the U.S. side of the border, but it amazes me that CKLW is as popular as it is. Whenever I've tuned in, I've found the programming to be milquetoast. Also, the formatics of the afternoon news bloc (which could very well be a recent...

Jeff Vaughn?
Murray Feldman, formerly of WJBK?
Steve Garagiola from WDIV?
Roop Raj from WJBK?
Jason Colthorp of WDIV?

Guy Gordon certainly belongs in the conversation, too.

No disrespect to Frank Turner, but that would be an underwhelming hire, IMO.
