Re: Audacy receives a 30 day extension to perform missed debt payment

A chapter 11 BK is inevitable for Beasley, in my opinion. Their cash flow leverage ratio is horrendous, and they are burning through cash quickly.

I would steer very clear of their stock (which is thinly traded in the first place).

Re: FOX 47 revolving door

Bots are a well known issue on Tiktok.

There are several Reddit threads about this.

The ratio of legit follows versus bots is tough to say.

I agree with sinklair. My fear is this will be an exercise in incrementalism.

Re: Audrey Dahlgren out?

I've seen her on the air there. I couldn't recall where I had seen her name previously; now I know!

That network (obnoxious on-screen graphics and all) is available over the air on a low power signal in much of the Metro Detroit area (WHNE channel 3.2).

Evidently, the mock-up to which I was alluding was an A.I. generated fake from someone with no affiliation to the project in question. I wasn't the only one fooled. https://www.metrotimes.com/news/mayor-duggan-blames-disappointment-over-detroits-new-i-94-sign-on-expectations-set-by-unofficial-instag...

There's a different mock-up than that one. I agree that the one you found doesn't look very different than the real thing.

The sign reminds me much more of the "Toronto" sign in downtown Toronto (in a public square) than the iconic Hollywood sign.

The Toronto sign has a better design than this one and is located in a far more sensible location.

Re: Whitecaps baseball back on the airwaves

So, that means the audience draw will be consistent with 1340's other programming. :)

Cumulus and its predecessor, Citadel, completely botched the opportunity to get a decent translator for 1340.

106.1's coverage is putrid.

Great info - thank you!!!

We shall see whether or not the FCC approves the proposed transaction. They might not given the fact Morgan Murphy presumably has some sort of connection to the proposed buyer and already owns WBKP and WBUP.

Re: WJMN TV to be sold to Morgan Murphy by Nexstar

It is in the Marquette market. Sounds like Morgan Murphy is trying to circumvent FCC ownership limits by using a variable interest entity to acquire WJMN. I am uncertain if the FCC views WBKP and WBUP as a satellite station situation or as a duopoly. If I were a betting man, I'd place my money on th...

The mock-up presented in connection with the funding request looks a 100x nicer than the real deal. A Detroit-based rapper is already writing disparaging lyrics regarding the new sign! (I agree 100 percent with his point of view.) https://www.detroitnews.com/story/entertainment/music/2024/04/10/gmac...
