Digital TV. It reduced the number of channels one can easily receive free over the air
What?? :eek
What, What??? It added not reduced.
Yeah if you're within a mile of the city's transmitters or have a tripolar antenna with quadrangular phrase harmonics. Otherwise not so much.

Those little dipshit FM transmitters 20-25 years ago that were mostly meant to play Discmen over car stereos before CD players in cars were standard-always had static for me even on open channels.

Re: 106.5 Toledo

You'd have to think any halfway decent offer would be accepted. It's a shitty signal in what was already a depressed market before the worst economy in 80 years hit with the pandemic. It could very likely just keep running ESPN Radio for 23 hours a day for many, many years unless ESPN Radio itself i...

Re: Toledo Riot/Looting

If businesses are getting looted, that's news.

Besides, I thought you thought Toledo was full of MAGA thugs who want to kill all LGBTQ+-MCDLTNRBQ people anyway so therefore should go up in flames? I'm confused.

Re: 106.5 Toledo

The Tigers have been off of Toledo radio for 3 years now and the sun has continued to rise. Clearing the Tigers to air wouldn't make 106.5 any more likely to be sold.

"Radio News 93.5 with traffic on the fives" would be much better than WSPD.
Traffic reports every 10 minutes? In Toledo?

Re: Bill Michaels?

Too bad, nobody could cue up Pour Some Sugar On Me 70000 times, sound like they're drooling reading ads for any restaurant, and end every sentence with either "man" or "baby" the way Bill could.

Re: Goodbye Kristi Leigh

Jeff and Sashem are the absolute worst. Do they ever go 2 minutes without giggling at something? Also, Jeff's hairpiece fools nobody.

I was no fan of Kristi except as eye candy but her leaving speaks volumes. Even Toledo lifers don't want to work in Toledo media anymore.

Re: Windsor ratings are out; 89X is slipping again

I wonder if 89X is suffering due to all the people curious about WLLZ and giving them a listen for a bit. Once the novelty wears off, things might return to normal. Could certainly be part of the reason. I think the bigger reasons are the fact WRIF is kicking their ass and 89X's overall sound is bo...

Re: Fort Wayne radio market ratings from Eastlan

WOWO is still that strong while other legacy news-talk AMs like WLS, WABC and to a lesser extent WJR have fallen by the wayside. I always enjoy listening to the Bear when passing through that area between Toledo and Chicago. A much better listen than the rock stations in the latter two cities are fo...

Re: Sean Compton fires WGN morning host Steve Cochran; hires Bob Sirott

Stupid. Cochran was doing well and Sirott is a has-been. Just when SOME of the damage Pig Virus did 10+ years ago was finally undone upper management egos are sinking WGN again.
