Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

Re: 98.7 The Breeze (Soft AC) is here!

You now have a 3 share of displaced listeners that aren’t going to be listening to the breeze. ‘KQI can take a victory lap as they will surely benefit from the flip.

Re: Christmas music ratings, WOMC vs WNIC

No surprise WNIC almost doubled their 6+ number for the holiday book but what the fuc* happened to WDVD? Down almost a full share sitting in 15th with a 3.1? Holy Allyson Batman!

Re: Bounce adds DJs

And as usual stations focusing on Xmas music will dominate. Expect NIC and OMC to hit double digits. The hemorrhaging at Bounce should mercifully end. They will forever be a 3 share disaster.

Re: Ken Evans out at WSNX

Radio was a lot more competitive back in the day. Grand Rapids used to be an incredibly intense radio market. I remember having meetings planning how we were going to ambush competitors remotes. How we would call and harass different personalities. We would literally spend hours figuring out ways to...

Re: CBS drops CHR in Houston & Philly, is Detroit next?

The disaster of Bounce is the disaster of bad programming not the format. Throwback hip-hop is a viable option and if done correctly could do well in Detroit.

Re: Bounce adds DJs

The Titanic is almost fully submerged. Bounce sits at a 3.0 in latest trend down from a 3.3 and sunk from that 8.0 in August. Cume is almost 1/2 of its peak a mere 3 months ago. The playlist is about as creative as a Donald Trump tweet. Is anybody you know actually finding this station interesting a...

Re: Bounce adds DJs

Faymos thinks you need to be in radio to know about radio. Not necessary. I would bet there is more talent out of radio at this point than in radio. That's not the fault of those that remain in the biz, kudos to them. But this thread is about Bounce and how those that are in radio fuc*ed this statio...

Re: Bounce adds DJs

There is nothing they can do kbg. They tanked it after the 10,000 songs in a row. It was text book how to destroy a radio station in 30 days or less.

Re: Bounce adds DJs

Circle 7 that line-up I listed is/was some of the best talent in Detroit history. Assuming listeners would "hit the button after a song" shows a lack of knowledge about old school Detroit radio, and radio in general. Hopefully you are not an OM or PD. Personalities matter. And TC Talks was right on ...

Re: Bounce adds DJs

Yes KQI is saying Merry Christmas and thank you to the powers that be at Bounce. The direction this station is taking is puzzling. 955 should creep back up to the mid fives. After losing cume for 3 straight trends, likely to Bounce, they had a nice recovery in November. It had to be pretty alarming ...

Bounce deflated

So November trends hit today and what I anticipated was shown in the ugly numbers, the air is out of Bounce. First to fifteenth in three months makes me want to vomit. So much promise wasted with poor management and lack of a plan, it is just disgusting and should be an embarrassment to all involved...

Re: LAUREN PODELL'S N-WORD SCANDAL

Its probably not the first time Lauren used the N-word. Appears she was comfortable putting it in a sentence. This time she was snitched out, probably by someone she thought wouldn't snitch her out. Either that or she's just a plain idiot. You see, when white folks feel comfortable enough to use the...

Re: A crazy summer ratings book for G.R.

As to WLHT, I'm sorry but you just don't drop 2 shares in 3 months having not changed anything. Im sure WLHT took hits in all day parts and demographics but I wouldn't panic. This was probably a fluke. While that spring 5.7 was more than likely too high, that summer 3.8 was probably too low. It hurt...

That post ironically didn't add you could potentially become part of the 8 million dollars Beasley plans on cutting annually to their operating expenses. Nope. That's a Greater Media post. Your contract is toilet paper. This radio station will never see anything higher than a 4 share, thanks to an a...
