Especially weird considering that they've apparently hitched this debut wagon to an an artist that's 60 years old and has been performing for over 30 years.

They launched today. So much for that theory.

Broadway is indeed doing mornings.

Re: Gnash FM 93.1 to rebrand - probably on or near February 22

Why not brand it 93-1 W4 Country and bring Bubba over to do mornings with someone like Roxanne or a Renee Vitale? Just stop already. Very interesting if this happens. Whilst I agree 995!!YCD!! (gag) sounds unfocused, off brand, and just bad right now they aren't going anywhere soon. I'd love a comp...

Re: NOheart cuts have begun

Brutal. Just brutal. Do we know of any Detroit casualties? The female jock who has been on Channel recently, whom I thought sounded really good, is absent. Brady from Z100 NYC is on. Dave Kent and KC were still on WNIC snd WLLZ respectively. Absolutely and sincerely heartbroken for all who lost thei...

Re: I'm not a big fan of WYCD's new imaging

I haven't cared for YCD's or WOMC's imaging for awhile now. I assume same person produces both stations. I always found it way overproduced. Just a personal preference I guess.

WDVD still occasionally uses jingles. I wish they'd use them more as well, it's a good jingle package.

Re: Cuts at Beasley Detroit

I do agree with an earlier post that Carlini likely has a non-compete. (Yet, Doug Podell was heard on 106.7 just days or even hours after quitting 93.1. Go figure.) Doug I believe was part-time at Nash and didn't have a non-compete. Brutal. Anne could wind up on WOMC, isn't that where almost all ex...

Re: Post mortem of 98.7 The Breeze's unsuccessful Christmas music run

I abhor Christmas music so barley listened, but it sounded like they copy/pasted the stale playlist WOMC used when they used to flip to Christmas, and get killed by NIC.
End result was the same.

Re: WJR shits the bed again...this time with a 2.2 share!

I think 93.1 would be within a point of WYCD on a consistent basis if it were to invest in a decent LOCAL morning show. From time to time, 93.1 would even have a fighting chance of tying WYCD. Run Ty Bentli on the HD2, and get his lame ass off the main channel. I think 93.1 would get better ratings...

Re: WJR shits the bed again...this time with a 2.2 share!

There's no reason to pull the plug on Nash FM. For as low budget as that station is, a 2.9 share is very respectable. There is no other music format where a 2.9 share can be achieved with as small a budget....NONE!!! The station spends almost NO money on programming morning drive, evenings or overn...

WRIF was fun when JJ & The Morning Crew (George Baier doing the voices) , Karen Savelly, Steve "The Kid" Kostan, Mark Addy, Nick Demos, when Drew & Mike ruled mornings, and of course Arthur Penthallow, on summer days blowing the foghorn telling you to roll over while tanning and yelling "Baby"!!

Re: Kid Rock

I don’t think Kid Rock has anything to do with racism. Heck, he had a bastard with a black woman. Kid Rock plays the role of a beer-swilling, NASH-CORE watching, white trash red neck jerk, and the real ones love him and his “music.” But let’s not overlook his best accomplishment: PAMELA ANDERSON PO...

Maybe WJR could buy it and simulcast like WBBM and WCFS? Maybe that would solve the problem of Purple People Meters not picking up their embedded code due to noise?
This is also my dark horse/wild card pick.

A bold move for WDVD or WDRQ would be to go Christmas just before Halloween to perk up those numbers. It might give WNIC a run for their money.

Nah.
I have no idea or care about DRQ, but I'm sure DVD's female numbers are just fine. 6+ beauty contest numbers don't mean dick.

That article is from the Fall of 2018, many months before the arrival of 106.7 Detroit's Wheels. Boring CSX will be going down in the next several months!
It was posted August 1, 2019.
