Re: Aretha Franklin Tributes

The WDET and WDIV tributes were well done. CKWW did play some great cuts, from what I heard while I had it on. WRCJ's Maxine Michaels also did an outstanding tribute on her show last night.

You either just moved to town or got a nice month-end bonus check from the Deuce.

Re: What's on WOAP right now?

That station is a mess...the programming, the social media content (their Twitter was/is being handled by someone out of state), and their ability to pay the simplest of bills. A friend of mine did some work for them that they requested and it took months for them to pay. Ridiculous.

I worked with him years ago when he was a young tool and I'm wondering the same thing.

Re: 98.7 WDZH scraps morning show - format change ahead?

Looks like WDZH will be staying CHR for the time being. New morning show was named this morning: https://radioinsight.com/headlines/168893/chris-cruise-julia-lepidi-take-mornings-at-98-7-amp-radio-detroit/ I love how she says she spent her "entire career" at WDZH.

Re: May 2018 TV Ratings

Imagine that, DIV's website doesn't give the morning numbers, only that they are beating 7 in a key demo. No mention of what Fox 2 is doing in the morning. 2 could most certainly tout their morning numbers; 7, on the other hand, shouldn't bother doing a release of any kind. You'd be foolish to thin...

Re: The Deuce Expands to 4 a.m. in September

The chart I saw on TVNewscheck had KSAZ as August 8 and 'JBK in September. Maybe it was updated after my original post. In any event, adding another 30 minutes to an already too long morning block is ridiculous anyway, no matter when they start it.

No, it's September for Fox 2. KSAZ/Phoenix starts August 8, according to the article.

Re: WOMC-Steve Clark

Armchair, I agree. Neither of them set ratings records, but that's due more to a series of management issues. Scripps sh*t the bed at Broadcast House after being handed the keys by ABC, much to the benefit of 4 and, to a lesser degree, 2. How their popularity translates into the world of morning dri...

Re: Anniversary of the shittiest move in Detroit radio history

April 4, 1999. Easter Sunday. Greater Media fired the staff of 105.1 The Edge on Easter Morning. I don't care what business excuse they may have had, firing the staff, by phone, the morning of a holiday is still the lowest thing I have ever heard of in this business and that's saying something. I r...

Re: Malcom Maddox of WXYZ suspended

I get it delivered to my home. Hmmm... I thought they went to a three day a week home delivery schedule a long time ago. Thanks for the correction. It's kind of a weird set-up for seven-day home delivery now. Yes, the Freep delivers on three of the days, but you can pay (separately) for an independ...

Being as the Saturday edition is news stand only, it wouldn't surprise me to find it in the Sunday home delivery edition too.

Does he really need the money at this point? Serious question. The guy has 40 years + in TV and is 62... at what point is the money less important than wanting to get out of what you are doing and move on? He’s probably set financially... I'm sure he doesn't need the money. He's had a long career a...

Re: WOMC-Steve Clark

MW, I agree. I don't think he's a good fit for the format. That being said, if NASH hired him, it would make a little more sense because he knows country and the station could use a big name - of course, assuming Cume-less would fork over the money. This whole "retirement" story does smack of bullsh...
