Id argue no to listing them together. Having worked in both markets, they are very different places. There's a reason they are separate. Trust me....
Subscribing stations make no sense in some cases (for example, ESPN 961 subscribing to Kalamazoo yet sister stations B93 and Star don't subscribe)

Kalamazoo and Battle Creek should just be combined for ratings!

Re: Predictions on how and when the shutdown ends

I voted for Trump, but I feel there's a good chance he doesn't finish his term in part due to his wall fight. I feel enough GOP representatives/senators will eventually support the Dem plan to reopen the government for a potential Trump veto to be overridden

There are still some south-facing antennas in Manistee (for WZZM; WZZM's tower is slightly closer to Manistee than WGTU's tower)

Re: Mix 106.9 Ironwood

"Stereo 107 WUPM" in Ironwood has given its image a sorely needed update. The station, which plays an unusually diverse version of Hot AC, is now known as "Mix 106.9, Your Music, Your Mix." A very nice web site, along with hiqh quality live streaming, is available at http://www.yourmix1069.com. I c...

Re: Predictions on how and when the shutdown ends

We are still 2 days short of the Obama 16 day shutdown and 7 days short of the Clinton 21 day shutdown. I can't remember the level of liberal outrage back then. Can somebody refresh me? Clinton's shutdown was effectively a week longer because of a large snowstorm that hit very soon after the shutdo...

Re: Songs With Famous Unexpected Back Up Singers And Session Musicians

On multiple occasions, a former Fleetwood Mac member has appeared on a Fleetwood Mac album after leaving the group. [*]In 1979, original guitarist Peter Green, who had left the group in 1970 but briefly rejoined in 1971 after Jeremy Spencer left, appeared on the song "Brown Eyes" off the album Tusk ...

94.5 hasn't been Thunder Country in several years!

One prediction: LAV ends up on 107.3 and keeps MSU sports (as sports and classic rock go well together)

The only songs that were a hit for Chilliwack was My Girl (Gone Gone Gone) and I Believe from 1981. The first one was fun.

I've heard those two on Yacht Rock. Not sure if either of those songs would fit in well while sailing

Re: West Michigan Top-of-Hour IDs

I'm still surprised WWKR keeps running that CCM programming on Sunday mornings, especially since there are not one, not two, but three CCM stations that put a decent signal over parts of its coverage area (88.3 WSMZ, which is on the same tower as WWKR, 90.5 WPFF, and 91.1 WOLW). A few years ago, the...

Re: Underwood Out

7&4 gives Mr. Watkins a lot of airtime for his weather segments, too. :) Seriously, some of his weather casts run pretty long! Was stunned to see WPBN's morning newscast start at 4:30 in the morning. I still remember when a one hour local newscast in the morning was a big deal. Trying to match 9&10...

From a technical standpoint, these stations are an unmitigated disaster. How long will it be before "renter's remorse" occurs?
Or Uncle Charlie comes to town. In TX, Henderson had a deal in place to sell one of his sticks, but then the FCC cancelled the license before the sale could close.
