Re: 106.5 Toledo

The Zone should've never been dropped from 106.5; that brand drew decent ratings given 106.5's signal limitations. Sports radio typically bills more despite the ratings. 106.5 flipped in a time period when multiple alternative and AAA stations around the country wound up flipping because the target...

Re: 106.5 Toledo

If this was 15 years, I'd say they could do a swap. Cloud gets 1520 for The Ticket, EMF takes 106.5 and puts air 1 on there. Won't happen. Right, The goal is now to exit big markets with high $$ signals. I have a theory, Could Cumulus make 106.5 a Fulton County station? Much like 98.3 is a Monroe s...

Re: 106.5 Toledo

Cumulus’ creditors are more interested in getting out of the biggest (mostly ex-ABC Radio) markets. Divesting 106.5 seems to be not as high a priority as one would have originally assumed. If it wasn’t for WNKL and WPAY, an AM station that just can’t be sold, Cumulus would have already dumped 106.5 ...

Re: Fuel FM

If there is a hell on earth - it's southeastern Ohio. Seems like an appropriate place for this pile of shit to be carried! Youngstown would beg to differ. That market has too many stations and, from what I’ve been told, none of them really make any money. And I keep thinking about how a Forever sta...

Re: How to program Wheels 106.7 by the hour

1. People want to hear the hits, and hear familiar voices play the hits. Studies have proven that time and time again. 2. No format has been tested to death moreso than AOR and the formats that followed it, including this iteration of classic rock. That's been going on since the 1970s, not 1996. 3. ...

Re: Will URban expand in Toledo?

Urban unloading is a safe bet. The problem now is... you need to find buyers for all these stations in what's basically a seller's market, not just in Toledo, but elsewhere. Maybe Adams could sniff the tires but Toledo feels like a market too big for them. Wolf Boom is strictly small market. Regardl...

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

Oh, I am sure they will update sets and graphics at some point. Probably after the Nexstar/whoever ends up with them dust settles. (Does Nexstar have a chain wide graphics style?) But there's no hurry. WJW could put their news team on a barren set with hand-written graphics and still be #1. Yes the...

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

WJW has been the solid leader in mornings for well over two decades. They took the lead at 10pm from WUAB in 1995 and have never looked back. Considering the limitations of WJW’s art department, they’ve done a good job with refreshing the graphics in 2015. It’s not perfect but is miles away better t...

Re: Day & Night at WDTW (AM)

The acceptance of that large of an augmentation is problematic to me. I noticed that a year or so ago. You do realize that there is only 5000 watts to radiate. If it's going South, there has to be a real reduction to the North, or somewhere, like above the horizon. I learned this from Carl Smith's ...

Re: 106.7 Detroit is identical to 105.7 Columbus

iHeart music stations are all centrally programmed, with the same music logs per format. This should not surprise anyone, that’s been the case since “Premium Choice” was initiated in January 2009.

Re: WQKL WPLJ Call Letter Swap (Speculation, But I'm Calling Art!)

The WPLJ call letters are important here because they are the brand. Cumulus is going to park them on a frequency somewhere, just so no other station in NYC or the suburbs can pick them up and brand themselves as “the NEW PLJ.” (Which is actually how the WKTU calls got resurrected after a ten-year a...

Re: 100.7 Toledo line up change

To be blunt, I don’t see that trust unloading 106.5 at any point in the near-to-distant future. They don’t need to. Toledo is a market where they have economy of scale and a divestment wouldn’t be anywhere near as much as they’d get for WJR/DRQ/WDVD. Plus EMF is not under any pretense or hurry to ge...
