Re: Improved AM in Subaru

I'm in the middle of a bare knuckle brawl with higher ups at a certain car manufacturer that is seeing AM as inconsequential and wants to cheapen the tuner. They'll save about 50 cents a car, maybe a buck. They think that FM in car listening is about 30%, AM- 6. I've sent them tons of real world dat...

Re: WHHQ Sold

[quote=tvbobn post_id=569709 time=1518816026 user_id=138] The application to sell the station was only filed with the FCC on January 19, 2018. That is less than a month ago. It takes about 90 days for approval, then they can close on the deal after that approval. They only paid $175,000 for a fullti...

Re: Subaru SXM Radio

I got the use of a Cadillac CT 6 for a weekend. Those cars are equipped with XM Radio. I cannot believe how good that radio sounds. Wide bandwidth, crisp highs. Amazing. In fact, everything with that Bose sound system is amazing. It's just that the XM stood out as it was such a stark contrast when c...

Holy Cow, WXYZ, Ditch Isom

I cannot stand her. Even a puff story is done with high drama. She is not good at this. Maybe she's the kind of person that's hard to fire?

I believe it is on WCXI 1160 out of Fenton. Signal is poor to non existant in much of the Metro.

Re: SOTU Address

I'm very disappointed with WDIV and losing respect for them, big time. Carr got on this morning and did a piece, dismantling the SOTU address and picking the speech apart. Could not find anything good to say and wanted us to know that Trump is a liar.

Re: Sensationalization of the weather

The new trick is to include how many the "storm" will impact. 100 million people will be impacted by the unseasonably cold weather.

Re: Stephen Clark Retiring...

It's good that Detroit Public TV kept Henderson. The Freep dumped him in the most knee jerk fashion. There are guidelines to handling whatever they SAY that he did. None of them include instant firing. I don't agree with everything that he writes, but i do not believe that he did anything worthy of ...

There's like 5 Purtan girls. I knew someone that dated one of them. In the time i worked for Gannett Radio in Detroit, none of them ever visited. In fact, from time to time, i've talked to Dick or exchanged E Mails. He's like dropped off the planet. Is he okay?

Here's one. I was listening to the ticket and the discussion was about firing Caldwell. A caller was listing reasons to keep him and mentioned that the host only wanted to ice the Coach because he's African American. The caller just slid it in, there. Really low in volume and sneaky.
