Re: Can there be another Detroit sports station?

Sipowicz,Lane appeals to the low-IQ "bro" crowd which confuses snark-the dummy's version of wit-for the genuine article. "Bros" are generally 18-35-year-old white males who probably live in their parents' basement, play Fortnite most of the day, get sloshed and seek the usual suspects to deprecate....

89X Too Hard?

I had a chance to listen to 89X a bit this weekend. It seems like it has swung the pendulum from pretty-boy alternative to butt rock. Wow. It sounds like Z-Rock did back in the day.

Are you kidding me? I haven't tuned into 97.1 for probably 2 months and this is the first topic I hear when I turn it on? Hahaha.

Re: Kirk Gibson. tiger tv broadcasts

He's been a horrible broadcaster before Parkinson's. But let's just assume it has taken a toll on his ability to speak...then maybe broadcasting isn't the gig for you. Sorry to say it but it's true.

Re: May 2018 TV Ratings

Shocking that local news in Detroit would be on the decline. I mean, when you have segments called "Help me Hank" and tremendous dayparts like "The 9", it's a wonder Lester Holt doesn't leave the network and go to Detroit.

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

There is no need for this from a viewer standpoint. There just isn't enough news in Detroit to warrant it. How many times can you re-run a story about an Amber Alert that turned out to just be the brat going to their friend's house? Traffic isn't an issue at that hour, so it's not like you're gettin...

Re: March 2018 Radio Ratings

I'd like to take a look at the breakdown of 97.1's numbers. Are they losing in key demos? I rarely stream them anymore, but when I do, it's just horrendous (even more so than it used to be). Valenti has become unlistenable with his using Hatchet and Sully as crutches. Honestly, the only show that ho...

Re: March 2018 Radio Ratings

Is it actually more ears? Or just a reason for AM listeners to move to FM, without picking up new listeners? This The reason 780 simulcasts on 105.9 is because their AM signal is disastrous in the downtown area. Tunnels, buildings, etc. I don't think Detroit has the same issues with reception as Ch...

Re: Budget cuts at The Bounce?

I've always maintained that the problem with these "throwback" stations (rhythmic/oldies as WBMX is classified) is that they woefully neglect the early to mid 90's. I could probably look at an R&R chart from 1994 right now and pick out at least a dozen songs that crossed over from rhythmic/chr to po...

I can't imagine it's going to be cutting edge radio. I foresee a lot of "battle of the sexes" and wishy-washy talk. Probably a LOT of stuff directly from prep services.

Don't be fooled...he gave himself the moniker of "Chappy." He wished people "Chappy New Year" on New Year's Day. It's annoying. He really is bush league, but does that surprise you?

It's settled. He's fine. Casual observation at a bowling alley is a valid diagnostic for substance abuse problems according to the DSM
