Re: Numbers

I bet they would pull above a two share doing a Duke classic country format. Between the two Canadian options and WYCD there are too many current country stations on the FM dial.

Re: Numbers

Anyone else surprised by WORDS good showing? Figured they would falter post election

Re: Lions are returning to 97.1 The Ticket

Weren't they simulcasting on 93.1 too? I doubt ratings were because of the station

Re: Radio Ratings: October 8 - November 4

Hard to believe that iHeart has done another round of Detroit cuts while Cumulus stays the course without an FM station in the Top 13 in the market.

Re: Maurielle Lue in hospital?

Creatives of color? I am beyond tired of every person being boiled down to one trait: the color of their skin. David Duke doesn't have to work anymore. He can sit back and let SJWs popularize his toxic ideology.

Re: Westwood One News going silent end of August

It had 900 affiliates at last check. I just can't imagine that news wasn't in demand right now. Hard to see your run of the mill local jock not being nervous at a Cumulus station right now. There is only so much national programming they can cut.

Re: Westwood One News going silent end of August

Looks like 3 percent of the workforce is getting cut.

An ominous sign for Cumulus employees you would have to think.

Re: April Radio Ratings

Ben, You may have a point. A similar point is that A/C listeners lean left but they aren't rabid partisans. If you are on DVD touting the lockdown to an audience that stands an infinitesimal chance of dying from the disease...that's a tough sell. You closed the businesses those moms work at and you ...

April Radio Ratings

Suburban women tuned out entirely. It doesn't look like they switched to WWJ or WJR much although both stations had great books. I think they stopped listening to the radio. WDVD and The Breeze crash to the bottom of the pack.

Cumulus Quarterly Earnings

Hard to imagine they won't lose $25 million in Q2. They lost $7 million in Q1 with a presidential primary and the Super Bowl. The country wasn't really affected by COVID-19 for January or February. Things will not be as favorable April to June. Towns around me are canceling all of their summer event...

Re: MORE "EXIT"COM indefinite Layoffs

When does somebody point out the obvious on-air that if businesses aren't allowed to reopen the industry will die. Same with TV. Isn't there any survival instinct?

Who is going through the commercial logs at Cumulus

Listened to 93.1 last night, 6 PM hour. Long commercial breaks with the same Geico or Scott's ad running in the same stop set. Heard a Covid.gov PSA next to a CDC covid PSA. Small things but it makes me think no one is minding the shop at the Fisher Building.

Alpha Media Beginning Layoffs

I would assume WSGW was safe for now. The other stations could be more iffy. Has anyone heard of layoffs among their Saginaw cluster?
