Re: 106.5 Toledo to be sold

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. WJYM (formerly WMGS) goes southeast at night w...

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...

WILS-FM Charlie McLravy

"Calvert Deforest" may know the answer to this one.

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

Somebody needs to get off their behind, and cut some new Tom Joyner promos. The "Houston" promo is funny, but it should have been pulled months ago (what month did hurricane Harvey hit Houston?)

Re: 1560am WWYC Toledo Off the air

Ah, you youngsters. You're leaving out a lot of history there. 99.9 was WKLR long before it became WKKO. WKLR was, as far as I know, Toledo's first black station. WTOD was originally Top-40, but switched to country, if I remember correctly in the late 60's. The poster who calls himself WOHO can prob...

The original WTOD was 5kw directional. I believe only one tower remains, and that's the reason for the puny power levels.

Re: 1560am WWYC Toledo Off the air

They are off. STA request says the transmitter has been operating at 1/3 power since 1/12/18. Now here's the real head scratcher: On 2/27, the "building owner" (which we all know is Cumulus) asked that the transmitter be removed from the building. Just what sort of other issues could this dying tran...

WOMC's playlist is boring me to tears. The music selection is awful right now. Entercom is ruining the station!!!
It's not only the music. The entire presentation is poorly executed. That's leaving aside the fact that they let a winning morning show walk, without a suitable replacement.

Re: Ron Cameron In One Word:

I've noticed on WDTK that Ron refers to his other show as being on "WPON", not WCXI. Do all of the hosts who buy time on WCXI do this? If they do, that's ridiculous.

1440 WMKM has a couple of paid programs that I find enjoyable (or amusing) but it's not worth losing CKUE just to hear those.

Nothing but silence on Soul 99.9 this morning. My guess is that some hiccup occurred when Tom Joyner came on this morning, and nobody at the station has noticed. Nobody at Radio One is maintaining this thing. They have been airing the same Tom Joyner "holiday eating" promos since roughly Thanksgivin...
