Re: From All Access this morning (WPFX has been sold)...

It looks like they changed up their logo and updated their brand a bit. Maybe I'm crazy but it feels like the station is very much targeted toward male listeners. I could be wrong but it has a much different vibe to it than in the past. Also they're pushing "live from Luckey, Ohio."

Re: Bill Michaels?

Anyone who finds themselves on the outs in this market is kind of screwed if they want to stay local. Woof Boom Radio in Lima, Adams Radio or Federated in Ft. Wayne are decent options for anyone looking to stay somewhat local and in the business.

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

A couple notes from someone who's been out of the business for a few years: I will give props to Lyn and Cliff. They're both extremely kind and hardworking. Anyone following the Shores and Steele era would have a challenge. I think given the circumstances, Cliff and Lyn are the two best for the job....

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

I'll give credit where it's due, IMO this is the best 105.5 has sounded in a long time. Compare it to whatever the hell was going on back around 2014ish, it's worlds better.

Re: Amy D fired from K100?

I wonder if this has anything to do with Andy's exit. Sounds like a budget cut if they're keeping John tracked.

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

A bit off topic, but I think there were a few PD's in between Finn and Marshall, before it went back to Ron Finn in late 2000s. Todd Micheals and Brian Casey come to mind. I think Steve Marshall had the best run with the Star brand.

Re: Andy Stuart out?

Corporate probably wants (more) budget cuts and wanted Andy to terminate some of his sacred cows. Cumulus just fired two of its morning hosts in Harrisburg, PA, likely to be replaced by The Bert Show in the case of the CHR station and the awful Ty Bentli show in the case of the Country station. It ...

Re: Another horrendous book for Q105

It's hard to tell without the breakdowns but it looks like this was a male heavy sample. That won't do any favors for a station that just launched a new morning show. That being said, it's rough to see a station w/ such a great signal dancing around in the mud 12+ with rim shots and translators. Cre...

Nice, the closest thing we've had to this is 98.3. Finally, a move that makes sense.

Bill Horman out at 13

Looks like Bill Horman is hanging it up. One of the best anchors in the city, IMO. https://twitter.com/13abc/status/1145655934104023040

Re: Gray/Raycom deal officially done, WTOL now a Tegna station

WOHO, didn't WTOL fire Horman back when he was to replace Jeff Heitz. WTVG has done a great job at picking up people WTOL tossed out. Melissa Voetsch comes to mind. Horman and Voetsch at 6 and 11 would have made an amazing team, giving Lee and Diane a run for their money. The current team, outside o...

Re: Gray/Raycom deal officially done, WTOL now a Tegna station

Just my opinion, WTOL really made a mistake not investing in seasoned talent years ago. I'm not making the claim that the newscasts are terrible but compared to WTVG the reporters are very "green." What's the story on Tegna? Will we see improvements at WTOL or are they budget slashers? As far as the...
