Re: Source: Cumulus Detroit is for sale...

Another scenario: Entercom buys WJR, simulcasts WWJ on it for 2-4 weeks, takes on the identity "News Now 760 WJR", then sells WWJ's license and plant to Salem. Salem sells WLQV to Zamora for some cash and the license and transmitter plant if WDTW. Thus Salem has 1340 to serve the East Side of Detro...

Re: April Neilson Radio Ratings

And yet there are extremely few stations with that format. OT, one of their morning announcers goes by the name "Kate T". When finishing her announcements, she would say " Kate T for WWJ". This was confusing to me at first, as I heard it as "KT4WWJ", like a ham call. Recently, I've noticed that the ...

Re: CKCO-3 Channel 42 Off the Air?

Should CKCO-3 flip to UHF 30 for its digital signal with virtual channel 42.1? From an ethical perspective, CKCO-3 should convert to DTV, but they won't. They're owned by Bell Media, the owner of Canada's cable and satellite TV providers. With OTA television out of the way (except in areas with US ...

Re: So many 50 kW AM signals

If you used , as a starting point, the corner of 135th St. and 7th ave, in Harlem. Run a radius of 8.5 miles out from that point, and scribe a circle around there, That circle would enclose all eleven of NYC's 50 kilowatt radio station transmiter/antenna sites. Now the Question is, do I have too mu...

Re: CHWI-DT-26 about to move

I easily get both 9 and 32 in Wyandotte, almost regardless of where my antenna is pointed. On occasion, if my antenna is pointed north or east, I've been able to pick up 22 and CHWI on RF16. I used to be able to pick up analog 42, but it hasn't been showing up as of late. Wyandotte is extremely clo...

Re: Why So Much 80’s?

It was like this : 1983 - WHND (AM) was the only Oldies station in Detroit. WCZY or WABX could have went Oldies but one went Top 40 and the other became Class FM (WCLS). 1984 - WKSG 102.7 became the first FM Oldies station in quite awhile. 1986 - Both 93.9 CKLW-FM and WKSG were FM Oldies stations. ...

Re: Why So Much 80’s?

97.1 was a 70s station about two decades ago and it flopped. It likely would have succeeded were it not for about six other stations jumping into the oldies pool with WHND at the same time. The rush took WHND and CKMR out of the race as well. Ultimately, it was down to WOMC and WKSG (102.7 Mt. Clem...

Re: TV Guide

It doesn't make any mention of OTA.

Fortunately, I have tvtv.us on my smartphones.

tvtv.us recently added Canada and the UK to its service.
If you want to be shocked, do a "Broadcast" listing for a small town in the UK, then a small town in USA, then a small town in Canada!

Re: What WJR Could Change In The Future.

If they do more local they really need to get rid of Beckmann and Albom, They both suck. I agree with getting rid of Albom and you can add Guy Gordon as well which would make room for Hannity as someone else has suggested. Acquiring additional local talent instead of syndicated programming would me...

Re: TV Guide

My in-laws subscribe to the Monroe Evening News, which has a TV listing section every Sunday. It has a grid of stations that cover which channels that appear on Dish, DirecTV and many cable systems that cover different parts of the county. But the grid makes no mention of over-the-air channels and s...

Re: Two AM 1210’s

WJNL (Kingsley, MI) should NEVER be operating at night, unless there is a bona fide emergency. It is a true daytimer, and WPHT, in theory, serves the people of Kingsley at night. Several stations in the Central and Mountain Time zones operate at night, either by using 3 watts at night, or by using a...

Re: Why So Much 80’s?

Around the time Disco lost popularity, MTV hit the scene. MTV became a vehicle for rock that was both rhythmic and melodic. For a few years, there was a rebirth of top 40. Then Rap and Grunge replaced it all. Many people liked neither. Mid-1980s pop had some similarities to Mid-1960s music Of course...

Re: CHWI-DT-26 about to move

Or, maybe more WKYC in Windsor.
We'll have to wait to see what happens when they move to 19.
