Re: Not really a radio topic.... but it is topical.

Frankie, I am an old guy. I heart made that painfully obvious when I turned 61. But I don't weep over politics, and I retired to a 44 foot yacht in Florida four years ago last month. I am bitter only because my wife disliked the boat and asked me to buy a home on shore. Politics is not a spectator ...

Goodrich looks to transfer WPRR FM 90.1 to Tyrone Bynum

So this only applies to WPRR FM 90.1, Clyde Township. There have been no transfer papers filed with the FCC in regards to WPRR AM & W273DD, both of which are owned by Goodrich Radio, LLC. WPRR, Inc owns 90.1. https://licensing.fcc.gov/cdbs/CDBS_Attachment/getattachment.jsp?appn=101821992&qnum=5060&c...

Re: WWMT is building a new studio and control room

Exactly! Seems to me when a station airs more programming than newscasts its pointless to call the station 9&10 News. Network TV does have news, but not enough where they should be labeled newschannel or something like that. Agreed. I always thought continuously referring to WOOD-TV as "24 Hour New...

Re: Irresponsible local television news reporting

The reporters logical next question to Allendale Supervisor Adam Elenbaas, should be where Swastika Memorials would be appropriate, where a tribute to the Viet Cong's Tet Offensive, and where a sympathetic historical narrative of the Terrorists who took down the Twin Towers will be placed.

The change over happened this afternoon at 2 pm.
Did WGVU only purchase the FM translator? Or did they purchase the remaining WPRR frequencies as well?

Isn't Tyrone Bynum the station manager now?

If so, that explains a LOT!

Too bad, as the audio quality on 102.5 was better than 95.3.
You said all that needed to be said.
