Re: Portest Coverage

I'm very surprised WOOD hasn't gotten some relief for Leon Hendrix at this point, he's been handling the desk solo all night. They knew these protests were coming, but seem severely understaffed in studio and on the streets. But at least they're still on the air, Fox 17 gave up a while ago and now F...

Re: WLAV Tower Relocation - new update 7/29

Okay, now LAV seems worse for me in the Ada/Lowell area? Is this going to get better?

Re: History In Grand Rapids

I guess ratings don't matter! Political correctness does. While I'm sure that a couple of man haters and white knights loved having an all female show on the ballot, I don't think it's about political correctness. Remember, the MAB is pay to play, not merit. You have to pay to be a part of the awar...

Re: Can You Tell Me Before Friday Night...

My Spartan work buddy couldn’t recall if at least one or two hoops games were off 107.3 FM & only on AM before Cumulus got pressed hard from East Lansing and/or Tieman’s group to honor the expectation of having the full coverage area that 107.3 affords. Go Green! ~~ Statmanmi You might be right, so...

Re: Can You Tell Me Before Friday Night...

I'm with the others that noted that the MSU network site affiliates page needs a makeover to reflect the Cumulus exodus. Spartans fans were not thrilled at all when initially in January Cumulus moved basketball off 107.3 as part of the format flip on to the AM dial (WJRW 1340am). I know, as a cowor...

Re: Can You Tell Me Before Friday Night...

MSU sports cancelled their deal with Cumulus after they dumped sports.

They're now a part of iHeartRadio. I imagine ESPN 96.1 or the Brew on 101.3 would be where it lands. Unless perhaps WOOD would run the games when there's no UM conflict.

Re: New 105.3 Hot FM morning show announced

That presser is making my eyes bleed. Spelling mistakes aside, I've also never seen a notation that doesn't actually include the exact demo and rank they're referencing, "garnered an impressive showing" sounds like they went from a 1 share to a 2 share. Which for Cumulus, might be a reason for a par...

Re: 106.7 WLLZ: Detroit's Wheels (Classic Rock) is here

Another non-starter on the 106.7 frequency. Will land behind both WRIF & CSX after a possible honeymoon period.

This is also a good time to remind everyone that Clear Channel had a chance to be the first with FM sports in the market at this frequency and didn't think it would work.

Re: Theory regarding Cumulus' next format move

So Hot FM is getting a flanker? Why not, the market is full of 'em. WLHT has always had the River and the Fox (now Brew) was put on the air because B93 couldn't beat LAV.

What a waste of signals in this market. Although it will be interesting to see how an Ubrban format might do in GR.
