Re: Big changes in just released June ratings survey; WJR hits all-time record low

WJR should be carrying Phil Valentine. He's in the Cumulus stable of talkers, and they recently renewed his contract. Listening to Guy Gordon get his ass handed to him by his callers is only going to be funny for so long. Get rid of the 7PM "infomercial dujour" which is nothing but a giant tune-out ...

Re: Robert Liggett passes...

I did not expect to hear the news about Bob. The last time I saw him was a couple of years ago. He seemed to be doing okay. You just never know. 99.5 Class-FM was quite an adventure. When you would bring it up, Bob would usually change the subject. Ken Monicatti (the car dealer) was also involved in...

Re: Local Radio Newscasts - Terrible!

I supposed there is a reason for the 3 posts on the topic. My bad on that one. While trying to post, I got the "504" gateway time-out error several times. And no, it was NOT Greg Bowman. But seriously, "MAHN-row" "ROE-tunda" and "Buh-DELL"? It's pathetic, to hear that we need a pronunciation guide ...

Local Radio Newscasts - Terrible!

I won't name the station or newscaster, but OMG, if you can't even pronounce "Monroe" "Rotunda" or "Biddle" correctly, you may be in the wrong line of work. It would be funny if it were not so sad.

Re: Mitch Albom proves once again he's a piece of shit

Hes always come across as a smarmy douchebag to me. How does a journalist get busted making stuff up and not only still have a job but be cocky attitude about it? As I have said many times before, I have worked at the same station as Mitch twice, and have never seen him be anything but pleasant to ...

This is a good idea, and perfect for Q106. Let's hope the sales geeks can sell it.

Re: Big changes in just released June ratings survey; WJR hits all-time record low

Peak traffic on the afternoon drive in Detroit starts at 4PM. For a number of years, 760 carried the first two hours of Hannity's show live. He replaced Albom in the 3p to 5p slot (Albom originally aired from 3p to 6p). Years later, Hannity was replaced by Savage in the 3p to 5p slot when Lew Dicke...

Re: Big changes in just released June ratings survey; WJR hits all-time record low

WJR needs Hannity back in the 3-6 slot, and be rid of Guy Gordon and Mitch Albom. Hannity was never in the PM drive slot on WJR. He was carried on "tape delay" at 7PM. Hannity has a bad habit of yelling "Breaking news! Breaking news!" on his shows, and by the time he said that on WJR, it wasn't bre...

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

Lansing was once an exciting, vibrant, fun, innovative market. These days? Completely bush-league. What I hear on the radio more or less reflects what you see. Driving through, Lansing looks like just another forgotten Midwest factory town. Even once trendy Okemos looks like an aging, tired suburb, ...

Re: 106.5 Toledo

Once again, the problem Cumulus had with 1470 was the Dickey's still owned the real estate. I wouldn't be surprised if the lease was for 5K a month, or some other ridiculous amount, plus annual escalators. When Lew was running Cumulus, all he had to do was cut a check to Dickey Broadcasting. When yo...

30+ years ago, Lansing was an exciting, dynamic radio market. Most of the on-air offerings I hear there today are on par with a market like Lima, Ohio.

Re: 106.5 Toledo

106.5 is a clunker facility, that probably shouldn't have been built in the first place. The only place they could squeeze it in is out by the airport. That severely limits the height, which I believe is around 350'. The primary coverage area is largely wasted over cornfields. It cuts Toledo in half...
