And once again, the Nationals strike late in the game and pile it on! Rendon and Kendrick have been amazing to watch all postseason. Congrats to the Washington Nationals!

Re: End of The Road for WBAI 99.5fm NYC pt 2

Per WBAI’s Twitter, Pacifica ‘s Board has agreed to restore the station to its local programming. Of course, Pacifica leadership claims that the vote is not legal. What a (not surprising) mess as this drags on. No matter how bleak things look for WBAI, I will never consider them dead or dying until ...

Re: End of The Road for WBAI 99.5fm NYC pt 2

Yup. Pacifica even took out the EAS equipment, leaving the WBAI staff no way to (legally) run the station themselves. It’s amazing how dysfunctional the relationship between Pacifica and WBAI has been for YEARS and they’re both somehow alive. It’s as if the same business ineptitude that has placed t...

Re: KFOG Bites The Dust

Meh. KFOG was seeing eroding ratings as a AAA even before going the “Music Matters” route in 2016 and going full-blown Alt last year. The execution of the format never did anything for me, though Cumulus has done a great job with AAA in Ann Arbor. Simply put, KNBR had to go to FM. KGMZ was gaining o...

Re: New Rock Station in Indianapolis

I'm going to really enjoy seeing this station humiliate Alt 103.3 in the ratings in the coming months. Only took two books for X to top Alt in the books! Indy has needed a good hard rock station for years! Overall, the station sounds really good. My only complaint is that their current/recurrent li...

They went back to the “Buckeye Country” branding as well as focusing on a Classic Country presentation. I like the move. It allows them to ...

Re: 106.5 Toledo

Although I still always wonder why they bothered heavily tweaking the Zone's format from alternative to (shitty off the bird) active rock for like a month before 1470 was shut down and the talk shows moved onto 100.7. It was a pretty odd move. Unless Cumulus really wasn’t going to move the talk for...

Re: 101.3 The Brew

And “just the way it is” is getting sinking ratings nationwide. I know there was a ton of speculation that iHeart would flip the Brew to Alt after flipping 106.7 in Detroit to Alt. It looks like iHeart really dodged a bullet in GR with that one! In my opinion, 94.5 fills the Alternative hole quite w...

Re: New Rock Station in Indianapolis

Lol, that’s a horrible idea. Hot AC definitely bills better than Alternative and given the downturn the format has taken, I don’t even see Entercom as being silly enough to do that. I am shocked as to how Q104 has dropped in the past six months or so. I wonder where the listeners have gone, as WDOK ...

Re: New Rock Station in Indianapolis

So far, so good. However, I have noticed they are playing a few Imagine Dragons and Twenty One Pilot songs. That said, Cumulus tends to throw in a few Alt songs onto their active rock stations- I’m personally ok with it. My only gripe with the station is that 93.9X sounds a bit clunky. If they wante...

Re: What's next for 93.9fm in Indianapolis?

Great move! I see it’s imaging is identical to the highly successful 93X in the Twin Cities. If they program this similarly, this station should do very well!

On another note, only doing commercial free through the weekend? Sheesh, radio companies are pinching pennies as of late, lol.

Re: 93.1 Gnash FM is now the lowest rated station in Detroit

There is ZERO chance that Cumulus is going to flip to Sports. Cumulus would have to spend a TON of money on talent to compete with 97.1, and as evidenced by their moves in other markets, they are NOT going to spend what it would take. Their recent moves to Gnash could mean one of a few things: 1) Th...

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

Team is off to a pretty nice start. The pitching looks great so far. The bats need to wake up fast, though. The Indians’ rotation is hard enough to beat even if their bats weren’t off to a slow start.
