Re: April Ratings

Cumeless missed the boat when they had the Lions on WJR to launch a second sports station. Cumeless should have dumped GNash-FM/New Country 93.1 for sports talk sometime around 2019. They should have also made a play for the Michigan Football broadcast rights and paired them with the Lions rights. I...

Re: New WWJ/WKBD Boss

Any chance with new leadership they build a real news studio and set for CBS Detroit? Also, any chance Rod Meloni and/or Mara McDonald end up at CBS Detroit after their buyouts and non-compete are up from Local 4?

Re: Who the heck is Marc Ryan on 97.1 The Ticket?

Maybe Sean and Matt don't want to do sports radio anymore, but if 97.1 needed another fill-in/weekend host I would have rather they hired guys with local experience like Baligian or Dery. Or maybe bring in someone like Tony Paul, who did shows on 105.1 when it was around. Oh well, good luck to Marc.

Who the heck is Marc Ryan on 97.1 The Ticket?

So I was listening to 97.1 tonight and there is some guy named Marc Ryan on the air co-hosting with Wojo in place of Jeff Riger tonight. Sounds like he was just hired from South Carolina and has never so much as lived in Detroit or went to a Michigan college like Valenti did attending MSU. So it sou...

Re: Nielsen Detroit radio ratings

I agree that a resurrection of country at 106.7 cannot be ruled out. More likely, though, iHM will stay the course. Their other stations locally under index with middle aged (and older) white males. WLLZ is their only local station that super serves that demographic. iHM will make a bid on play-by-...

Re: WOMC hires a Jim Johnson successor!

I would have added someone local like Chuck Edwards, but the addition of Ben Campbell as another local voice is better than no one.

Re: Trouble at CBS News Detroit

I know nothing about the TV news business but why was the decision made to have the Southfield-Lathrup High School AV set brought in after the school closed down to be CBS Detroit's news set? Why won't CBS invest in a real, professional looking set? I know it shouldn't be that big of a deal, but how...

Re: WOMC's Jim "JJ" Johnson Announces Retirement

Chuck Gadica was on as the guest host this morning on WOMC. I wonder if Gadica will end up getting the job as JJ's full-time replacement. I think he'd be a solid choice for WOMC. I'd be surprised if Exitcom was willing to spend that kind of money though to bring in Gadica as a full-time host.

Re: Nielsen November 2023 radio ratings

Cumeless should have flipped 93.1 to sports instead of selling it. WXYT needs some competition givetn their 9.4 rating. It's too bad both 93.1 and 102.7 were both sold for religious programming.

Re: WOMC's Jim "JJ" Johnson Announces Retirement

Given how cheap David Field and Exitcom management are, isn't it likely that JoAnne and Jason will be the new morning show and JJ's spot doesn't get replaced at all? David Field seems to have a fetish for syndication too, so is there a syndicated classic hits morning show from one of their Exitcom m...

Re: Detroit Public TV moving, current home sold

I think PBS still has a number of good shows and original specials. They have great documentaries and historical specials. As well, I enjoy the PBS News Hour over any other the other daily news shows. I watch Frontline, Nature, and Nova as well. There are worse things you could watch and rot your br...

Re: New Nielsen audio numbers - lots of movement!

It's disappointing to see, even with all the voicetracking and out of market talent they have, that WYCD is doing so well. I can't stand Katie & Company on middays and Coop being voicetracked from out of market sucks too. I also don't like their CHR imaging as 99-5 'YCD and the CHR jingles they have...

Re: Matt Shepard Out After Five as Bally Sports Tigers' PBP...

Could the Tigers snag Joe Davis from the Dodgers for play-by-play duties? Davis is a Michigan kid from the Lansing area and I would presume grew up watching the Tigers.

Does Cheap Channel have the willingness to finally bring in a live and local morning show and hire JJ as their new morning show host on WLLZ? ... I'm just conjecturing here. But I think Mr. Johnson has decided to retire. If he still wanted to work in radio, I'm thinking he would of just stayed put....

Does Cheap Channel have the willingness to finally bring in a live and local morning show and hire JJ as their new morning show host on WLLZ? They've never invested in a live morning show at 106.7 going all the way back to The D when it was Alan Cox. Even now with Spencer Graves and whoever it was b...
