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...

Yes, see Detroit Sports 105.1. That did worse.

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.

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

Vegas has them at 67.5 wins. I’d say that’s actually a good one, I think I’ll put my money on just over. Still have them in 4th, just ahead of KC.

The thing to watch about this team is how well will those prospects brought in during the 2017 blowout progress.

Re: 106.7 to flip shortly, RIP FAULT

It’s a shame 89X doesn’t subscribe. I know a radio pro on one of the other boards was saying they average around a 1.5 in Detroit, pretty much what they’ve been running since Dave & Chuck left. No idea about Windsor, since last I checked, Windsor didn’t even release a book due to low turnout. Honest...

Re: 106.7 to flip shortly, RIP FAULT

Stopnswop, With Cumulus dealing away WNSH in NYC, are they still running the Nash brand as a national brand? Meaning, are they’re going to keep failing stations around to keep market coverage? If not, perhaps flips could be coming to some Nash brands? That said, I’m not sure a WKQX-type station, as ...

As expected, it’s Classic Rock.

Adios, Alt 106.7. I tried to like the station, but the playlist was horribly tight and it didn’t sound local to Detroit at all. I do hope the WDTW call letters end up somewhere else soon.

Re: Fault 106.7 appears to have one foot in the grave

Except there’s no shortage of research that goes to show the 55+ crowd isn’t as inclined to buy off of radio ads. Who do you think runs the advertising agencies? It’s probably not millennials.

Re: Following Out-of-Market Sports Teams Difficult

That’s why I gladly pay for the SiriusXM streaming package. I can stream all the Tigers games on my phone. I moved to Cleveland a few years ago for work and it’s also nice because of the Tigers are playing the Indians, I can watch the game and stream so I don’t have to listen to the Cleveland bias d...

Re: Dave and Chuck The Freak

You’re right. It’s not June anymore. But the ratings for WRIF have been in the same range and every other day part book I’ve seen in the last half decade has had them ahead, I’d say it’s pretty safe to say Dave and Chuck still lead by a mile. If you insist on something more current, you can always p...

Time to pay up.
I’ve never liked the show, but WRIF basically changed morning shows and never missed a beat, ratings-wise.
