Re: Kalamazoo Nielsen audio numbers

Win 98.5 has become a near non-factor in this market. WIN 98.5 ping pongs back and forth every handful of years of embracing Kalamazoo as part of their audience and not. It seems like lately, they have not. It interesting how this market has often considered a GR station as the country station of c...

Re: The updated sound of 103.3 WKFR

Will a Kalamazoo-based FM give Adult Contemporary a try, or will all of the local stations cede the format to out-of-market stations, as is the case with Country? With Nielsen changing listing rules this spring, we'll start to see Grand Rapids stations being listed in publicly published Nielsen 12+...

Re: WVFM got JACKED up!

Has anyone noticed that Midwest labels Hits 96.5 as a Hot AC station on their corporate website? https://mwcradio.com/station/106/. Their website has had some issues with accuracy in the past. Back in October, the website listed WVFM as a Classic Hits station: https://web.archive.org/web/20201028144...

Re: WVFM got JACKED up!

Wow, this is a shocker. I agree with MWmetalhead's prediction for 96.5. I would prefer to hear a music format on 96.5, but rebroadcasting WKZO is a fiscally prudent move as radio attempts to survive and emerge from the COVID downturn. Detroit Tigers broadcasts on 96.5 should not be an issue this yea...

Re: WMUK finally responds to sluggish ratings; major programming changes underway!

WMUK has very detailed write-up about the changes on their website: https://www.wmuk.org/2020 . They did not go into detail about the ownership status of the 89.9 frequency. From what I can find online, 89.9 is still owned by Kalamazoo Public Schools. For those of you not in the Kalamazoo area, the ...

Re: 930/102.7 in Battle Creek flips to Classic Hits

Hopefully Midwest does the format justice in Battle Creek unlike their piss poor attempt at Classic HIts in Lansing @ 92.9 FM. I wouldn't count on it. I have been tuning into AM 930 this weekend and it sounds like they are just piping in the Classic Hits format from Westwood One. The Westwood One f...
