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

Variety hits would be a safe flip. 106.7 should've stuck with that.

Re: CIMX-FM coverage area

A lot of the banter during the morning show on 89X these days is Canada focused. I've also heard plenty of weather forecasts where the temperatures are expressed in celsius first and Fahrenheit second.

Re: CIMX-FM coverage area

I've noticed a trend of stations near the border getting distant to their neighbors, in a way of Canadian Patriotism, Blackburn stations stopped airing Metro detroit traffic reports 4 or 5 years ago, Idk if Bell have yet,

Re: Latest Detroit Radio Ratings

It's really sad when a NPR station based out of Ann Arbor with a tower 50 miles west of Detroit beats a 50kw station right in Downtown detroit, 106.7 can't catch a break, think that frequency has been cursed since the 90's, except the beat which did okay, that didn't deserve to die, Alt 106.7 certai...

Re: March 2018 Radio Ratings

106,7 Is just cursed, not that their current format is worth a damn, pretty sad when a NPR station 50 miles from Detroit is doing better.

Re: Improved AM in Subaru

Newer Fords have really good AM, My parents listen to the cubs on 670 from Chicago, it sounds pretty Crisp, In my 98 Oldsmobile 88 barely any AM stations come in remotely clear.
