Re: WLNS-TV channel sharing postponed again

That's the problem when this stuff is segregated county-by-county. A year or two ago the cable system in Portland (I think it's WOW although I'm not sure) dropped all Lansing stations in favor of Grand Rapids stations only on their lineup. Portland is much closer to Lansing than G.R. geographically...

Re: WKAR-TV repack and more

I thought WGBH in Boston already operates its WGBX experimental station along with a satellite WGBY in Springfield. Ok, I'll rephrase: A PBS station outside the top 50 markets. Isn't much of PBS programming still distributed from WGBH? In which case, would give WGBH more than enough to operate two ...

Actually the TC radio operators are happy he runs a lousy operation. Less competition.
101.9 would be the perfect stick for IPR News, if they were to spin off 91.5 to a religious operator.

Re: New Meteorologist Just in Time

Certainly that break-in on WLAJ wasn't Erik's call. Someone on the Lansing board claimed WLNS/WLAJ (at least at the time) lacked the proper technology to allow for break-ins on one station only. Sister station WLNS has heavy viewership in the Howell area. Still, it sucks that the football game on W...

Re: Blue Wave?

I feel that Calley should have run for Senate instead of for Governor. I think Stabenow will likely win re-election by something like 60-40 (in a more favorable year for Republicans, Peters won election to the Senate in 2014 by 13 points while the Nerd won re-election by 4 points)

Re: Very interesting proposals from NAB

The NAB and FCC should apply the Traverse City Rule, which would allow simulcasting pairs to count as one station if their city grade (70dBu) signals do not overlap

Re: Alt 106.7 - 6 months in

In Dallas, the full-market Alt signal (103.7 KVIL) is losing to rimshots 105.7 KRNB and the simulcasting pair of 107.1 KESS and 107.9 KDXX.

In Atlanta, iHeart's entire cluster (which includes Alternative 105.7 WRDA) is doing awful, with the exception of 94.9 WUBL.

I'm not happy to see Miggy go down again, but perhaps it's a blessing as it ma...

Re: Freedom Radio FM on 91.5

91.7 has been mostly Rhinelander, with Alpena and Muskegon showing up rarely. Speaking of Rhinelander, 105.3 is pretty much a regular in Manistee, with 94.5 and 97.3 not far behind

Re: Razor 94.7 adding 104.7 WBJZ simulcast

Razor 94.7 has one of the more consistent WI-based signals around here (Manistee). Most of the more consistent ones are either on the Door Peninsula (WPVM, WPFF, WDOR, WDKF) or run 100kW (WIXX, WAPL, WPNE)
