Re: Big changes in just released June ratings survey; WJR hits all-time record low

WJR should be carrying Phil Valentine. He's in the Cumulus stable of talkers, and they recently renewed his contract. Listening to Guy Gordon get his ass handed to him by his callers is only going to be funny for so long. Get rid of the 7PM "infomercial dujour" which is nothing but a giant tune-out...

Re: Big changes in just released June ratings survey; WJR hits all-time record low

In 96.3's case, it's a mostly voicetracked station in the wrong format. They only track nights. They're also sounding more like a hot ac again. The Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20, Alanis type '90's songs seem to be back. Reaction to losings some P2's to The Breeze maybe? Things could have changed there...

Re: Big changes in just released June ratings survey; WJR hits all-time record low

We are constantly told by the far right in this country that they are the silent majority and that here in Michigan, Trump is sure to win again. Well, if they are a majority, they sure aren't tuning into WJR and Pills Limbaugh or No Degree Hannity all that often. This argument is so tired. Firstly,...

Re: Big changes in just released June ratings survey; WJR hits all-time record low

WDVD's numbers don't look much better. Both of those Cumulus stations have hemorrhaged roughly 1.5 shares over the past year. In 96.3's case, it's a mostly voicetracked station in the wrong format. Top 40 is atrocious right now. The only true live daypart is the morning show and it feels like it is ...

Guys, Dudley and 101 are the same person. He's just smearing social conservatives. It's the message board equivalent of Jussie Smollett.

Re: Local Pride month mentions

So...not only are you talking to yourself but your trying to smear political opposition as hateful bigots. That should be grounds for banishment from this board. No churchgoing Catholic or Mormon who disagrees with gay marriage talks this way. Stephen "C*ck holster" Colbert might though, so would th...

Re: March Nielsen numbers are out for Detroit radio

Can’t understand why you’d put WJR on the FM side when it pumps out 50,000 watts and can be heard clearly everywhere in Detroit, most of Michigan and in surrounding states Can it? I live in the Thumb and daytime reception is poor with a lot of static. Doesn't matter if I'm in Sanilac, Tuscola or Hu...

Re: WDIV video editors asleep?

The video isn't going to be on for a split second, do you want epilepsy? I'd guess at least 5 seconds, could be longer if it involves chanting or an interview. Doesn't necessarily mean the F- Trump guy was on screen for the whole time but it should've been caught. Fuck Trump is in the center of the ...

Re: 106.7 Detroit is identical to 105.7 Columbus

I wouldn't crap on 106.7's weekend playlist. Podell was at Cumulus a week ago so this thing came together fast. Weekend playlists are all scheduled on Friday meaning three days (Sat-Mon) have to be done in one day. Whatever program they use to schedule was most likely allowed to schedule with just a...

Re: Fake News

Not surprising. The Pravda enthusiasts who are the media today have gotten generations of Americans to believe that national socialism was just the German offshoot of the GOP. Gone are the people who remember that Joe Kennedy was so enamored by Hitler that it cost him a chance to run for President. ...

Re: WLEW on-air mispoken words

what's your main reason for listening to the radio? As I stated before, Max in Morning (5:00am to 10:00am). I like Max. Seems to be the only one with some Experience and Professionalism. After Max, it is station surfing. WLEW is hiring a news person. You should apply. As they say, be the change you...

Re: WLEW on-air mispoken words

40 and 70 are what we are allowed to do. Don't ask me how that got started. I rarely write them but for clients I know get sent to other stations I try to keep them the standard 30 or 60. And you have to listen earlier in the day :). I'm not perfect but I do try to do a decent newscast. http://thumb...
