Re: What WJR Could Change In The Future.

If they do more local they really need to get rid of Beckmann and Albom, They both suck. I agree with getting rid of Albom and you can add Guy Gordon as well which would make room for Hannity as someone else has suggested. Acquiring additional local talent instead of syndicated programming would me...

Re: WPON Update - 2019

It's the Motown sound with the quoted announcement above just like before. You would think they were closing in on a deadline the wa...
