Re: What Does the Fox Say? Goodbye...

Just turned on my radio to find 94.3 playing classical music... looks like they’ve made the transition to public radio.

Old School Local TV Megathread

If anyone’s got some cool vintage local TV stuff they found or would like to show off, post it here! I just found this composite ad break from TV 29&8 from 1985 - although you might want to skim through a fair bit of the video to find the local stuff: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ambEM2unLFI I also...

Re: N. Michigan 2012 Format Questions

As far as I know, 101.9 was known as "Sunny Country 101.9" rather than simply "Sunny 101.9", which was what they went by in their AC days. And I believe around 2012, 98.1/107.1 and 94.5/93.9 were their own simulcasts when it came to The Bear. Don't really know if 94.5 simulcasted 93.9 or the other w...

Fox 33 Newscast

The guys on NewsActive3 posted an old Fox 33 newscast from 2007, and based on the looks of it, this was before Heritage Broadcasting picked them up.

The footage says 1994, so I'm going to say most likely. How long did Federal own the station?
After doing a quick search of some old issues of Broadcasting Magazine, Federal picked up the stations from Beam around 1991 and sold them to Raycom in 1997.

Re: "new" 7&4 News upload

Found this a while back, forgot to post about it here. Pretty interesting find. I can’t wait to see what else the uploader has in store. As for the question on the night newscasts, I can only assume most people wouldn’t just get up early and immediately fire up their VCRs to record the morning news,...

Re: Format change at 107.5?

I thought they only did 60's on weekends? The only changes I've noticed to the regular playlist are the addition of 80's songs.

Re: Baraga selling to Relevant Radio

According to the Baraga website, they just switched to Relevant Radio on October 15, so they’ve already made the switch.

Re: Smitty heading to mornings on The Bear

Jeez, so many personnel changes it’s making my head spin... I thought Smitty had retired for good at this point!!!

But to be fair, I can see Smitty sticking around in the morning show slot for quite a while.
