Re: Alt 106.7 - 6 months in

I think we are forgetting 96.3's attempt at "Alternative Classics" during the post Planet era, when Garrett Michaels was PD. It burned out quickly. I believe he tried the same formula in Seattle.

Listening to Darryl today ,he said John was in the building, so he must be doing fairly well. Hopefully that means he'll be back soon.
That's the best news I've heard today. I didn't get a chance to listen earlier. Thanks.

Re: Worried about John McCullough

Back in April (or maybe late March?) John told listeners he would be taking some time off to have a medical procedure done that was long overdue. Sean Baligian filled in first, and was replaced by Darryl. About 3 weeks into the leave, Darryl had John on-air via phone. John sounded good, but tired. H...

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

It's tough for out of market talent with no prior track record in Detroit (in any daypart) to succeed in morning drive here. In the past twenty years, I can think of two examples of true newcomers who succeeded in mornings here: - Mojo (WKQI) - Blaine Fowler (WDVD) In Mojo's case, he was paired wit...

Worried about John McCullough

John McCullough's "short leave" from WDTK seems to be dragging on and on. Darryl Wood, who is filling in, had John on the show about 3 weeks ago via phone. John sounded tired, but in good spirits, and very anxious to get back to work. Is John doing okay? Has there been some setback?

Re: WRQN badly needs a competitor

I agree in part. Yes, the true, prepackaged "Jack-FM" format would work in Toledo. Anything similarly slapped together by Cumulus would be poorly executed, and not as good. Tom Petty and Bryan Adams would be heard at least once an hour.

Re: Tom Joyner returns to 105.9 Kiss

I am afraid the “Soul” format is gone for good. On a weekday afternoon last week, I listened for several hours straight and did not hear even one commercial (except for the live read one that came with the traffic report). Advertisers don’t want older listeners. I bet too many older listeners are a...

Re: Tom Joyner returns to 105.9 Kiss

I doubt that anyone was out on the streets trying to sell spots on Soul 99.9. Hell, the last time there was any significant amount of local businesses on 99.9, Angelo Henderson was there! When Cliff Russell was shown the door, almost ALL of the paid programming disappeared, only to reappear on AM 91...

You cannot use a translator to expand your "city grade" signal beyond it's limits. 106.5 is what it is, where it is.

Re: 106.5 Toledo to be sold

There is a 730 in Lansing that must be protected as well, though that isn’t as much of a factor as the old CHYR 730 East Lansing isn't a factor at all, as both of them came on air around the same time, fall 1964, as I recall. 730 is a Mexican 1A Clear.

Re: WWMN Sold?

Sounds like AM 1210 & FM 101.1 may be signing off soon or switching to a different format. Would be interesting to see these guys make a go of a second format in the area, but I'm guessing that's not in the cards. It would not at all surprise me to simply see AM 1210 & FM 101.1 simply go off the ai...

Re: 106.5 Toledo to be sold

Lew Dickey actually does have a side venture - Modern Media Acquisition Corp., which has until the end of 2018 to spend $208M on stations . Thus far, he’s bought... nothing. But since Cumulus is divesting these stations on their own accord, I highly doubt they want to sell 106.5 to their former CEO...

Re: Andrew Z... again?

This is really going out on a limb, but perhaps the station in question is WPOS. Maybe they've had enough of hiring managers and air talent who turn out to be embezzlers, addicts, and perverts. :lol
