Facing another uprising, is there a local newsroom anyone can depend on?

Given the terrible showing of local news during last summers riots in GR, I have little hope of anything better on Sunday going forward. Here are the dominant headlines today (Monday the 11th). FBI WARNS OF 'H*** UPRISING Open Carry Banned at State Capital Armed protests being planned at all 50 stat...

Re: Conrad on Jethro

The sale of B-93 and the two WOOD stations was announced on February 19, 1996. In 1992 The Miller Brothers (two Kalamazoo lawyers) bought B-93 from Fetzer for two million. A year later the station was sold to Bruce Holberg who owned the WOOD stations for 10 or 11 million. Tim Feagan had lined up an ...

Re: Conrad on Jethro

The original afternoon guy was Dave "the beef" Wellington. He didn't believe country would ever work. Conrad joined us a month or so after sign on. Turned out country worked till I Heart and it's greedy minions got a hold of it.

Who's a stand up gal or guy?

You have a real name and a screen name. Who will stand up and say I yam who I yam? (I was in the Navy too. ((Beat Army)).

Steve L. I was under the impression you had to have at least one person on premises to monitor the transmitter{s}. Has that changed?

Re: 3 Grand Rapids stations were dead air on Sunday afternoon

You all know there was one part timer there when this all happened. The person could have dozed off, or who knows what. Neal used to tell a story of a part timer who went to a bar at a tiny station in downstate Illinois, while he was playing a record of a religious show. The record started to skip w...

Re: Not really a radio topic.... but it is topical.

On November 4th I wrote, "What a terrible shame Mr. Trump can't bring himself to match the grace of his supporters by calling the President Elect, offering a pat on the back, and a sincere concession." I apologize for my error. Many, if not most of Mr. Trumps supporters are anything but gracious. Th...

Re: Odd that men don't do the same work as women....

Frosty, there were some bad hires in my last few years at I Heart. Because "It is what it is", Phil Tower was one culprit. When the tenth floor began easing me out, I was named news director at WOOD. It was a title only. I had no power over hiring and firing. Phil blessed me with a young woman out o...

Mickey Lolitch: You almost certainly were listening to Ally Mac. In her defense the show was voiced tracked. She probably had no idea the game was canceled when it was recorded. Stupid? If you were doing three shows a day you might get confused too. As for stumbling through a break, if it really was...
