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: The spring training screw-ups have begun

Nope...the Blue Jays feed for today's game had the same problems. There were engineering issues originated at the stadium.

Re: Whitmer vs. Fox2

Not only that,Snyder was an ugly nerd who savaged education to give his rich buddies even more tax cuts !! Where does this come from? The only Michigan governor in my lifetime to slash education funding was Jennifer Granholm. Snyder did the exact opposite even in the face of illegal teacher strikes...

Huron County got 8-10 inches and we might have another 3 inches by tomorrow morning. Not snowmageddon but not nothing.

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...

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.

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 ...
