Re: Local Talent Axed at ESPN 96.1

WBBL's ratings stunk. Why resurrect it? The national ESPN morning show often won in mornings. I wouldn't resurect BBL, let that brand stay dead. I would move the Ticket's programming. They would have a 'local' morning show with Matt Shepard's show (which has occasional rotating hosts, but always ta...

Local Talent Axed at ESPN 96.1

As part of the iHeart cuts, the station will be entirely on the ESPN satellite feed.

If Cumulus is smart they'll move The Ticket to one of the FMs (107.3 is probably best) and go after the audience and $$$.

Well, I mean, they had a 4 share 18 months ago.

Re: Nielsen audio ratings roundup: WLAV's ratings are at multi-decade RECORD LOW levels! WTNR remains a dumpster fire!

I actually like WGRD's playlist as of late, there simply isn't enough product to sustain a straight ahead active rock that also pulls the ratings that GRD does. It actually seems like someone actually thought about what Grand Rapids would like, as opposed to a corporate list. The Brew is a little sc...

Re: Gnash FM 93.1 to rebrand - probably on or near February 22

Wow, 'New Country', what a boring rebrand. Especially weird considering that they've apparently hitched this debut wagon to an an artist that's 60 years old and has been performing for over 30 years. I hope they have A LOT more in store than just this. Detroit is not well served by a corporate playl...

Re: August Nielsen Audio #'s for Grand Rapids (Ages 12+

First, who buys 45+? Secondly, these are not the new monthly numbers, they're the old 3 month average. Considering only one company in town is buying a three month average, I'm wondering who Cumulus is sending out for damage control, and is the best you have? This is a Nielsen issue...real numbers: ...

Re: New 105.3 Hot FM morning show announced

Can't imagine Lori lasts much longer, even LAV has fallen off under her watch. At least Crenshaw moved things forward.

I can't believe Cumulus thinks so little of Grand Rapids that they move a washout in as OM.

Re: Analyzing the Cumulus format moves...

I agree with most of your points. I like the idea of a AAA in the market but the musical chairs to get it done seems ridiculous. I think many thought the only reason to uproot country off 94.5 was to slide WHTS into that frequency either now or following an LAV simulcast. Their transmitter issues, e...

Re: 94.5 The Q - new format is Adult Album Alternative

But on 94.5 - all they need to do is ID "WTNR Holland / Grand Rapids." There is no reason at all to mention WBBL. I don't think anyone there knows how legal IDs work. Didn't someone here point out that they weren't even IDing properly when they switched the formats earlier this month? Or maybe they...
