Re: New Sports Radio station? About F'M time!

Some of you guys think a sports radio newcomer would miraculously feature compelling hosts and great content? Give me a friggin' break. First of all, there is no one in the "minor leagues" in sports radio in Michigan who is any more talented than the folks already on the air at 97.1. There are no M...

The story I’ve heard has nothing to do with station performance either ratings or revenue.
Go on...If you can, obviously.

Re: Andy Stuart out?

I think there's still hope for 1470 on an omni-directional signal that airs only Tigers games and A Firm Foundation.

Re: Andy Stuart out?

Pretty big news as one of the last radio moguls to reside in Toledo, he ran ClearChannel in it's heyday with Shaffer pissing off Carty and the Blade, afternoon shows on WSPD that pissed off minorities, but it delivered ratings and probably some ad dollars. Then he did stupid stuff like fire Jim Fel...

Re: Andy Stuart out?

His "editorials" used to run on all the Clear Channel stations regardless of format. You'd be listening to WIOT and all of a sudden "I'm Andy Stuart. Michael Bell must be the next mayor of Toledo!". At least he dialed back on that stuff at Cumulus I remember another odd move of his not long before h...

Re: New Daytime Talk Shows

For those interested, Kelly Clarkson's new show now has a station list online: https://www.kellyclarksonshow.com/exclusives/where-to-watch Looks like she'll be on almost everywhere in the U.S. I was surprised NBC is promoting it on their cable channels like NBCSN, even though it's syndicated to a l...

Re: Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethons

As a kid I prayed for good weather on Labor Day weekend so we could go to the cottage or the beach. If it rained we were stuck watching the damn telethon because my mom was a Jerry fan. If anyone cool like Hulk Hogan made an appearance it would be at like 5:30 AM. Otherwise it was Tony Orlando, Char...

Re: Will There be "Terrorism Alerts" during Tiger Broadcasts?
