Re: Thoughts on Rush Limbaugh's legacy

Say what you want about Limbaugh, but the revenue Premiere/iheart is going to lose with his passing will be significant.

This best of Rush stuff is going to get old quick and there is not a voice in the format that can pull anywhere close to his numbers.

MWC flipping 96.5 to CHR at this point would be a total waste of time and 15 years too late.

Re: Dave Benson leaving?

Only thing left to wonder is which lame ass, canned, air talent kid; syndicated and broadcasting on 50 radio stations from his/her bathroom in Duluth, Townsquare will add to his/her list of markets and stations they don’t give a shit about. Their instructions will be to just make sure you don’t say ...

Re: Is Anyone Focusing on 105.3 HOT FM?

I don’t see a problem with RDS being stuck on Justin since every other song they play is actually from Justin.

Re: Another reason someone should take on B-93. No local morning show.

Morning radio and radio in general in GR in the 90’s was as competitive as any major market. Lots of quality talent and programming. If you were #1 at any point in any day-part or demo you earned it. Lots of shit talking too...hehe.

Re: Another reason someone should take on B-93. No local morning show.

It’s nice to see you guys wax nostalgic about the good old days of radio, but you are delusional if you think any local air talent would “crush” any major syndicated radio show, or that a “local” (whatever that is nowadays) well run station can kill a heavily syndicated stick. Listening habits and e...

Re: Another reason someone should take on B-93. No local morning show.

Eventually Reese you’ll come to the realization that radio is dead. They are subtracting not adding. For those that have survived this long, be prepared, It’s just a matter of time before your number is called. Mention radio to any savvy investor and they’ll laugh in your face. The audience/listener...

Re: December Nielsen #'s for G.R. - worst book in nearly 30 years for WSNX!

The 3 music stations Lite, SNX, and Hot are definitely struggling. SNX has lost its identity, Hot never had an identity, and Lite is caught in a bad music cycle in which they don’t “own” any records. Flipping around to all 3 stations and hearing the same Justin Bieber song in a quarter-hour is tirin...

Re: Numbers

Some of you act like flipping a radio station is as easy as flipping pancakes. It’s a very costly and risky endeavor. And as we have witnessed over and over again in this market, if done haphazardly it’ll end up being a dog especially when faced with stiff competition. The last actual successful fli...

Re: Music tweak at The Bounce

Trust me when I say this. The new PD is not coming into Detroit making format tweaks or anything else on his own. There are a lot of “opinions” floating around The Bounce. The days of PD’s actually making calls on his/her own are history, especially in the majors. Although the qualifications for the...

Re: Phil Tower is latest iHM budget cut victim

Radio companies like iheart, Cumulus, Beasley, Townsquare, have to reduce operating expenses in order to survive. It’s a simple numbers game. You work in radio you are given a number. It’s just a matter of time until your number gets called. Now that the political season is over, and that easy reven...
