Re: AM 680?

WNZK needs to give Crystal the entire morning show 6-10 time slot, It would be good for Miss Mayo and WNZK, They need to market her show, They could get a small amount of ad revenue. Crystal is a musically talented personality. And Innate you have brought Crystal up before, So we’re on the right tr...

Re: The "personality" of radio stations

IMHO, the personality aspect took a hit when PPM came to Detroit. Seeing listeners tuning out in real time scared the hell outta Management. Reaction? Shut the jocks up. It never recovered. Second place: digital platforms. Took people-power away from making a solid analog station. (Do more with less...

Re: Lone Ranger on WXYZ-AM

I think, but I am not 100% sure. I would have to reference Dick Osgood’s Wxyie Wonderland book.
It ran from 1933-1954 according to a piece that ran on Michigan Radio today.

Re: Turn DOWN your thermostat! Really?!

No, the lawyers aren’t drooling...it’s the accountants. DTE can charge significantly more per kWh providing power to the grid (that goes to “the market”) than directly to their customers in their primary service area. So, if we use less, that “saved power” is put on the grid and sold for more. It’s ...

Re: Crooked Detroit news media give preferential treatment to DMC?

Border: I get it. My point in the second half of my post was the Metro Detroit region. For example, if those reporters from The Detroit Free Press (M.L. Elrick & Jim Schaefer) were covering say the best Coney restaurants in town, instead of investigating Kwame Kilpatrick, what media outlet would hav...

Re: Crooked Detroit news media give preferential treatment to DMC?

I've not heard or seen squat from either 2, 4, 7 or WWJ. Did station management tie news department staffers' hands here? After all, DMC is or has been a major advertiser on all of the above stations over the years . The lack of local media coverage on this matter is stunning, and reminds me of how...

Re: Snowmageddon?

Was anyone NOT predicting today's ending of the world, or did all the forecasters fall in line to scare the crap out of every school and county office and wet the lips of every lawyer? I use the NWS/NOAA website. I like it. It’s straightforward. No ads. It’s usually pretty accurate. They forecasted...

Me TV Detroit bug

Channel flipping this afternoon and noticed along-side the MeTV bug in the lower right-hand corner of the screen, is the Local 4 bug. Wonder if this is new marketing or an oversight. The Local 4 logo does not disappear during commercials. Also, its intensity is not dimmed during a show. Happy Snow d...

Wings and coaching

Aside from the underdeveloped talent coming up from the Griffs to take the place of injured players, the Wings aren’t totally el sucko. The latest losses have been 1-goal games, not blowouts. What is irritating the hell out of me is the coaching. Jeff Blashill is a good guy. He really means well. He...
