Re: WJR at 500 kW Transmitter Power with Directional Antenna (1950s proposal)

Wasn't WJR one of a half dozen clear channel stations that asked the FCC for 750kW in 1962 (if you look them up on the FCC 'history cards')?

Re: Hell 106.5 Toledo

even if it was stunting, I don't think the new owners of 106.5FM changed their call letters, did they? Then again, I'm surprised that Cumulus didn't bury the WTOD heritage call letters on an AM somewhere so they could hang on to them and not let the competition have them, but then again, they didn't...

Re: Loss of Limbaugh, Retirement Of Beckman And Others, May Force Changes At WJR

To have a decent on-air news staff, WJR would need a dozen journalists. It would be cheaper to broadcast EZ-listening music on WJR

Re: Toledo airchecks from 1998.

Late 80', very early 90's when 101.5 was still WLQR and music was programmed locally, it was unique, so you even heard soft AC Moody Blue's LP cuts and esoteric music not heard anywhere else, and Lee Conklin with LOCAL news on air, then once WRVF rolled along, the individualism of WLQR left and slow...

Re: WTOL (CBS) Toledo approved for power increase by FCC.

WTVG would be better served by having stories that only air at 5pm- you miss it, too bad, not at 5:30 or 6pm, maybe an edited version at 11pm. Investigative reporting at 5:30, but sorry, don't get it at 6pm. Leave your viewers wanting for more and forcing them to watch 90 minutes instead of a quarte...

Re: Community expresses disappointment at radio layoff of Steve Bell

When radio lost its conscience in 1996, it has destroyed what once was a very fun, relavent, local media. Gone, gone, gone...so sad.

Re: WNWO (NBC) Toledo granted FCC license for new 275 kW DTV transmitter.

TeddyBear, that was the funniest comment I've read today: "Using shortwave to broadcast Hawaii-5-0"!. I can actually imagine how that would sound on a fading radio with the kettle drums in the theme song! Thanks for giving me a good chuckle. Yes, TBD is just like those DA videos clogging-up Facebook...

VHF antenna and you've gottem, viola! WTVG was running their local news on antenna 13.2 during the capitol riots and left ABC on the main 13.1 feed.

Re: 106.5 Toledo

Holy Toledo, and don't forget 89.7 BG/Toledo. and a LPFM in BG on 97.7 too. Yeah a dozen religious stations in the Toledo market along with their 4 country signals is 10 too many.
