Re: For whom to vote in Michigan GOP Senate primary...

I thought James was going to win the GOP Senate primary. I also thought Schuette and Whitmer would win the gubernatorial primaries. However, I was surprised that both of them got over 50%. Poor Shri!

Re: WLAV-FM has filed to change its main tower site to WFUR-FM's site!

LAV has an absolutely pathetic signal tonight. I'm getting Sheboygan in clearly - 38 watts at 93 miles for the past 3 hours on the portable. I thought perhaps by some chance I was hearing WNKL despite conditions to the southeast being sub-par, but lo and behold, TOH ID "You're listening to the U.P....

Re: New Nielsen radio ratings are out

580 is doing very well without an FM signal in one of the largest markets by area in the country. Likely #4 or #5 (the only non-subscriber I could imagine having a higher share than 580 is KLT; the other non-subscribers (the Fox, the Bay, ESPN, Q100, Eagle 101.5) are likely well below 580)

Re: Time to 86 Alt 106.7?

I realize 106.7's signal isn't the best within a 2 mile radius of downtown Ann Arbor and we all know that 107.1 is a FAR SUPERIOR radio station, but holy shit - in the spring 2018 book, Fault 106.7 scored in Washtenaw County.... (wait for it) ...a 0.4 share!!! :rollin https://menu.radio-online.com/...

"What some people don't realize is that 9 & 10 news broadcasts on two stations," no really, you don't say!
If "9&10 News" or "TV 9&10" isn't enough for one to understand... there's no hope lol
There are probably some out there that think 10 stands for their cable channel

Re: WLNS-TV channel sharing postponed again

We don't know if 6 and 10 were requiring payment of retransmission fees from WOW or not. You are right that WOW is cheap, but I don't know if that was a factor in this instance. WLNS required FCC intervention to avoid blackout restrictions from being enforced in Livingston County, as I recall. My m...

Re: WLAV-FM has filed to change its main tower site to WFUR-FM's site!

I sense a format swap between 96.9 and 107.3 incoming, with LAV moving to 107.3 and BBL moving to 96.9 (which would downgrade to B1 and change COL to Lowell). If 96.9 were to downgrade to B1, could the 96.9 in Standish upgrade to a full Class A (they're only a 3kW A)?

Certainly 80s centric except Allman Bros and Crowbar (CANCON for the latter). Is Blackburn selling any advertising? They seem to struggle in that regard, at least in Windsor. CHOK in Sarnia seems to do OK. Nirvana and Tom Cochrane are also 90s. How is Crowbar considered CANCON when the band's out o...
