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...

Re: WLEW on-air mispoken words

Since WLEW doesn't get mentioned that much on this board anymore (and as someone who works there now) I'd be curious to hear what people think about how the station sounds today? Same problems?

Re: Q106 ain't bad, but...

I had an interview at Midwest in Wausau last summer. Ended up not getting the job but they know what they're doing in that building. Legit talent on the banks of the Wisconsin River there, beautiful area too.

Re: Winter Storm Watch and the idiots who predict it.

Up near 4 inches here in the Thumb already. We might get towards 8 since it is supposed to stick around until after dark.

Re: Radio survivor Sean Baligian

Agree with MW, Fellhauer is quite underrated the last six months. It isn't just because he left Drew's side as he has made multiple appearances on the new podcast and is a superior talent now then he was when The Drew and Marc show was on the air. I think Sean is good in that he doesn't force Fellha...

Re: Latest Book Surprised Me

The only thing that could possibly be saving 98.7 is the fact that they are operating on a skeleton crew. If they are generating just a million in sales cash flow is probably pretty decent.

Re: 97.1 Dying with MSU

It should be very interesting to hear Detroit radio tomorrow as people have the weekend to digest what happened Friday afternoon. Truly a shocking upset.

Something tells me he doesn't miss that playlist...it is stunning how bad WOMC has gotten. It makes me long for Peter Noone and Herman's Hermits.

Re: Saturday Matinee w/ Baligian

It isn't a problem at Red Berenson's Michigan but Anastos gets 300K at MSU and that program has gone off a cliff. The salary measures the resource commitment of the University to the program and what Michigan spends today isn't commensurate with the competition. That worked at MSU under Mason given ...

Re: Saturday Matinee w/ Baligian

I'm just saying that I think Michigan fans don't realize how cheap Berenson's contract is compared to the competition. Lucia makes significantly more at Minnesota. Hakstol made over $300K at North Dakota before bolting to the Flyers. His replacement, Brad Berry, who does not have similar name recogn...

Re: Saturday Matinee w/ Baligian

http://www.mtu.edu/hr/docs/salaries.pdf

270K for Pearson

246K for Berenson

And that is nominal. Compare the cost of living in Houghton to Ann Arbor...Pearson probably makes close to 3x as much as Red on purchasing power basis.

Ha! Pearson is locked up for 5 more years and makes more money than Red. Why exactly would he leave Tech for UM?

Re: Saturday Matinee w/ Baligian

Normally I'd agree except that both the NFL and NBA drafts are seen as extremely weak this year. Pistons tried desperately to give away a first round pick for marginal players from Houston because they see nothing of value. You will eventually hear a lot of people suggesting the Lions trade down fro...
