Re: Debate MIA?

I posted the Chicgao Tribune piece from a conservative opinion columnist earlier. Now, here's another view from the right.

It's not very often that The Nation, Rolling Stone, and Tucker Carlson can all agree on something!

Re: Debate MIA?

Bernie is not a conformist Democrat. That is one reason CNN does not like him. He had the tenacity to (god forbid) primary challenge Hillary and wound up giving her quite the battle. That act alone probably placed him on CNN's sh*t list.

Here's WOOD Radio's Facebook page in Grand Rapids.

Unlike WJR's useless page, WOOD Radio's page is very well executed!

Re: Hey, WJR - your Facebook page stinks! (Even more so than your on-air programming!)

Not sure what you're looking at, but I just pulled up their mobile friendly FB home page on my phone, and it's the exact same bullshit I saw on my desktop PC. Are you sure it was 760's FB page you viewed and not the station's general web site? Here's their official FB page for mobile devices: https:...

Re: "News Now with Kevin Dietz"

That pile of shit was produced out of state somewhere, and yes, the video quality, production values, EVERYTHING...was horrendous.

For some reason, the Oakland Press and Macomb Daily associated themselves with that abortion. Not sure why.

Thankfully, the plug was pulled very quickly.

50,000 watts. A supposed "News / Talk" station. What does the (not so) great voice of the Great Lakes use for content on its FB page? Iran tensions? Nope. Impeachment developments? Nope. Road funding debate in Michigan? Nope. Environmental disaster in Madison Heights? Nope. Dem primary race? Nope. A...

Re: Debate MIA?

CNN wants Warren to win...badly. They would be perfectly happy with Klobuchar, too, and probably wouldn't mind Biden cinching the nomination. CNN tried to throw Bernie under the bus on Debate Night. I agree with all of the below opinions. https://www.chicagotribune.com/columns/john-kass/ct-bernie-sa...

Re: Trump admin to move to relax school meal standards

I know how local school boards are run. The politics inside of these boards is often worse (if that is even possible) than the politics that goes on in Washington DC.
AGREED 100%!!!

Re: "We cannot play two females back-to-back"

I think there's at least a 50/50 chance the original tweet came from the PD of 98 KCQ himself, despite his claim of "needing to investigate" the source of the tweet. http://www.insideradio.com/free/country-radio-s-gender-gap-hits-mainstream-media-again/article_f2de8b36-3906-11ea-bd25-efec039d2710.ht...

Re: FCC repack

For those in the Lansing area, I'd be curious to know how receivable (or not) the Grand Rapids - Kalamazoo area stations are.

Re: WWJ signal problems? (+ WJR audio distortion)

BMW, I'm curious to know where 630 CFCO, 910 WFDF, and 800 CKLW would chart on your 1 - 10 scale. On paper, CFCO should be as strong or stronger than any of the Detroit stations, especially during the daytime. WJR's potency has degraded with time. Years ago, they used to deliver a decent signal to t...

Re: "We cannot play two females back-to-back"

Good reaction by 94.5 The Moose; they did female artist twofers on Friday. :)

Not sure if they took any shots at KCQ or "that other country station" on the air, though.

Re: Iheart Disloctation

For most of the 1980's and 1990's, WKDD was at or near the top of the Akron ratings too. Then Clear Channel purchased them and moved them. The present WKDD 98.1 facilities are exactly as the old WKDD 96.5 facilities, directional antenna being the only difference. Ratings are nowhere close to what t...
