Re: Spring Arbor splits Home.FM simulcast

I guess Home.FM is now a commercial station? That means out-of-market, directly owned translators are now out of the question. This explains why the former Home.FM translators are now rebroadcasting (or soon will be rebroadcasting) 89.3. Home.FM is a modern yet very soft AC. A little too sleepy for ...

Re: Chris Tyler leaving WITL

I agree with you regarding WHZZ.

Another option would be 92.9. A one-two punch of 92.9 + 94.1 going up against 100.7, attacking Wittle from both sides of the country music spectrum.

Re: Scripps buying ION Media

I think only the O&O's that present cross ownership issues are being divested; ION has several dozen O&O stations across the country, do they not?

Re: WLLA adds another sub Channel...

WLLA is really branching out with regard to programming offerings, it seems. I remember them as an obscure super high UHF analog station with a terrible signal in G.R.'s south suburbs despite transmitting right next door to WUHQ/WOTV (whose signal was good at 2,000,000 watts and great after the upgr...

Re: Scripps buying ION Media

Why do I suspect the buyer for the 23 divestitures is not truly arms length?

That pro forma net leverage ratio of 5.2x ain't pretty.

Is WZPX in West Michigan another one of the 23 stations to be divested?

Re: The Postal Boxes Of Ingham County

It's unsightly, and perhaps a sign ordinance has been violated (civil infraction), but there is no way in hell this little scene is "criminal." I agree that prosecuting something like this would make Ingham County a laughing stock; perhaps law enforcement officials should be spending more time going...

Re: WCUZ 101.3 & 1230 AM

Most likely 1980s or very early 90s vintage. I believe 1230 flipped to talk radio around 1993. Before then, the same call letters and logo were used for both AM and FM (much like WOOD Radio prior to 105.7 becoming EZ 105.7).

Re: Gardenhire retires with eight games left to play; cites job related stress

I was certainly in favor of Blashill's promotion at the time. However, he should've been fired after this past season (or sooner). MLive (a/k/a Matt's favorite news outlet) endorses the notion that McClendon is in the running: When the Tigers beat the Indians Saturday night, McClendon officially pic...

Re: Gardenhire retires with eight games left to play; cites job related stress

He does not strike me as that type of person. Quite the contrary, actually. He is very concerned for his health; he made that clear from the get go. Yes, I do think McClendon has a real chance of being the Tigers' next skipper. They're cheap. He's already on staff. He has managerial experience with ...
