Re: Q106 interference

Don’t blame them - once you start getting towards the Ionia / Kent Co line on I 96, Q106 is gone as it’s heavily interfered with by the Ticket. It’s BS but I’m sure there was some malicious intent on the part of Cumulus to do so as it would cause people to tune into LAV

Re: Breaking: Meredith to possibly exit the TV business

Another private equity firm wants to get into an industry that they know NOTHING about. I cannot blame Meredith for grabbing a $2-billion carrot. But there's only one outcome, especially if the heads of private equity firms are children of or devotees of Gordon Gekko's philosophies. They'll trim as...

Yea I heard Dirks last night, might be a experiment but he added little to the broadcast.
I disagree - heard him during the play by play and then the post game show. Sounds great and competent on the air unlike Price who talks to hear himself talk

As I’ve seen posted before, they have an older audience. Maybe they’re starting to die off - or maybe people are sick of the Neo conservative babble they broadcast....

Re: Listeners are abandoning local radio in droves in the Lansing market

Q106’s prior “Everything that rocks” format stunk and was all over the road. When you’re hearing music that 1/2 the time could be heard on MMQ, what’s the point? So glad they cleaned up their playlist

Re: Mainstream media in this town is kissing the Ilitch family's asses again

I don't understand why the politicians WHO GAVE the Illitches this sweetheart deal dont get the blame for this? Also how does Gores get a free pass from the media. Him moving the Pistons to LCA cost the taxpayers an extra 30 million dollars and unlike the Joe the Palace was state of the art. The Il...

Re: Am I the only one who's tired of Jimmy Fallon's format?

Watched and recorded Fallon when he first started on the Tonight Show. After a while, he began to bore me with everything being the best or most awesome. His humor borders on stupid at times and the giggling like a school girl drives me crazy. It’s very rare if I watch Kimmel. I just don’t find him ...

Re: Could the radio DJ be gone someday?

It’s funny - I’ve went back to my old job and am driving a company vehicle (with just AM/FM) versus my own vehicles with SiriusXM. Wife also had to drive a loaner vehicle from the dealership for a week with the same set up. We were both saying last week how much we missed XM during that period becau...

Re: Nexstar in Flap With DIRECTV and AT&T-UVerse

How did TV stations who get their licenses from the FCC get to charge cable, streaming or satellite services for carrying their signal when anyone in the stations broadcast radius can get it over the air with an antenna? Are the rebroadcast entities inserting their own commercials? The local TV sta...

Re: They cannot fill this position in Lansing...

I forgot that Terry Stevens was Brand Manager for the whole cluster. He did one helluva job (I mean that seriously, not sarcastically) at Rock 94.7 in Wausau. He's applied the same musical formula to Q106, and the station sounds absolutely great right now. 1000x better than WGRD. A lot of the stale...
