Re: Whitmer Misses The Mark

I think the question needs to be asked why Beaumont, Henry Ford Health System, and others who make oodles and oodles and oodles of money have not taken it upon themselves to properly stockpile supplies for a pandemic. Yes, the government (both state and federal) should be properly prepared, too. But...

Re: "Stacks 92.1"

Seems bizarre that the PD of the CHR station in the cluster (92.9) wouldn't be handling PD chores for the new 92.1.

Re: Magic 104.9 Grand Rapids Makes Music & Morning Changes

In Detroit, Steve Harvey has been kicking Tom Joyner's ass in the ratings for years. Look at Chicago, too. Steve Harvey anchors morning drive on V103, one of the most successful Urban AC stations in the country. Tom Joyner, meanwhile, was carried on puny little Soul 106.3, a Class A signal whose sti...

I suspect the vast majority of D&M podcast listeners don't access the podcast via that URL, audiophile.

Many likely access the content via iTunes or Apple podcasts, for example.

Re: FUCK YOU, Entercom. (Chuck Edwards and Cadillac Jack both fired from WYCD.)

Dave & Geri hadn't been a factor in the GR market for about a decade when they switched to podcasting. Toward the end of their WLHT run, ratings were sagging. During their WHTS run, ratings were abysmal. Several years after being off the air completely, they started a podcast. No one was pining for ...

Re: Fox 33 Newscast

Fox 33's old 10PM newscast (when Rockfleet was running the show) indeed was a decent product. The design of the lower thirds was a little cheesy, but the remaining production values, anchoring, and reporting were all rock solid. Did the anchor at that time actually sit in the Cadillac studio, or was...

Never was a fan of Dennis Fithian. Once in a great while he'd deliver a great show. Most of the time his content & analysis were both very bland and not well formed.

Re: Please, enough with the whining

Just because one person near the edge in the completely opposite direction receives it doesn't mean everyone near the edge has the ability to receive the station using outdoor equipment. There is far more impulse noise in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti than there is in a rural farming community. If you rea...

This may not be a popular thing to say, but I think the future of the truly talented, especially as technology evolves, is podcasting.
I think you're probably right.

Re: FUCK YOU, Entercom. (Chuck Edwards and Cadillac Jack both fired from WYCD.)

It's clear to me that the wet dream of most major AM/FM execs is to nationalize the programming on at least 80 percent of the stations across the country, K-Love style. One CHR format on dozens of stations, maybe two country formats, a couple urban/hip-hop formats, one classic rock format, one news/...

Re: WKLT-fm, Kalkaska and WKLZ-fm, Petoskey

I cannot see Biederman paying more for 98.9 than what EMF paid.

A trade with EMF appears more likely - 93.5 + a little cash for 98.9.

Re: "Stacks 92.1"

Based on the station's Facebook page, it appears the flip occurred March 26. Interesting format choice! Playlist reminds me of 106.7 The Beat of Detroit right after it launched in 2009. The Lansing station seems to have more of an upbeat Urban AC lean (big focus on crossover hits, of course). Certai...
