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.

Re: Brian Chapman on 97.1 is a doofus

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 not like XYT is known for its HOF broadcasters...Dan Leach (who does live reads for vape stores), Caputo, Karsch,...

Just listening to last night's podcast and really again cannot figure what Trudi contributes. Comparing it to the Maz shows, the 3rd person on mic when she's there just is innocuous.

Re: 97.1's Scott Anderson needs to be fired or suspended

If people are tuned in, it's probably a function of just having it on as background noise during work as much as it is actually actively listening for Anderson's hot takes. As much as I loathe the way Jeff Moss goes after people's private lives, I have to say, his hatred of Anderson is hilarious: ht...

Re: 97.1's Scott Anderson needs to be fired or suspended

Valenti has really been unprofessional during this entire MSU scandal. He makes Caputo look impartial. I understand the need to stir the pot a bit, but he doesn't do so respectfully. And, why is Sully featured so much during his show? But comparatively speaking, Valenti's show is much more palatable...

The entire format of that 10-2 daypart is horrendous. There are a million specific things that make them suck, but there is just an overall bush-league quality to both of them that makes it painful to listen to. I'd rather hear a syndicated show than listen to those 2 assclowns. How about load CBS S...

I wouldn't fire him because of this specifically, but I would fire him, as MW said, because of his consistently poor on-air performance. He's entitled to his views, but his broadcasting acumen is where the problem lies with me. He is just a horrible on-air "talent." Now, to discuss the #metoo thing,...
