Re: Toledo radio 2018 predictions

Both of the big radio owners in Toledo will start selling off stations the size of Toledo and smaller to meet their debts. The challenge will be to find buyers Meantime you will begin hearing syndication from other stations in place of local talent. I have talked with employees of each big owners gr...

Re: Toledo radio 2018 predictions

Both big radio companies will be forced to consolidate programming with syndicated programs in order to meet financial problems. Local personalities will be dead meat, or you will hear Johnny D on all Cumulus outlets and Detroit or other big city outlet talents on IHeart stations wall to wall.

Re: DAY OF DOOM

I question which of the big two radio companies will start selling off their properties to cover debt first. I suspect IHeart will begin by divesting of its properties from the Toledo sized markets downward, and in the next few months. We could see the same procedure with Cumulus also. The big probl...

Re: DAY OF DOOM

Next chapter of job losses is bound to come with IHeart's twisting of its debt in the next few months. Expect small market spinoffs and job consolidations between large markets. Predictions?

Re: Is it time for a real format change on 105.5fm in Toledo

No surprise there. $tuart fired the best programmer the station had in order to free up bucks for Denny. Not a good move and it is showing.

The Stuart Curse Continues

The Dickey's gotta be wondering what they have done. Ever since Andy Stuart came over there, their number one station and others have tumbled. And it continues. K100 has dropped and stayed at number two, the only station in the top five. Andy's big gamble with Denny and Johnny have fallen flat. How ...

K-100 Fall Continues

The Stuart curse continues as once dominating K-100's free fall continues. They are now number 3 in the market. Kiss is number one, The River is a close second. Oh yeh...Denny is way down the list. Didn't make even the top five.
