Re: 98.7 The Breeze on air line-up

So you're saying that Richards talent level and ability to drive ratings is on-par with (or could be if given time) to that of Kevin O'Niell, Chris Edmonds, Sandy Kovach, Lisa Berry, Lisa Jesswin, etc.?

Re: 98.7 The Breeze on air line-up

I know it's 2019, but I had more faith that Entercom, unlike iHeart, would actually invest some money into their on-air lineup. If this station really can't pull together an airstaff with at least one or more of Chris Edmonds, Dave Lockhart Kevin O'Niell, Kevin Sanderson, Linda Lanci, Lisa Berry, Li...

Re: Detroit needs another option for vintage Rock music

What about flipping GNash to classic rock as Q Rock 93.1, 93 Rock, etc. What are Cume-less successful classic rock stations around the country? Who would they syndicate for nights, since we know live and local all day is too much to ask for? Whoever a would be format flipper is, would it make sense ...

Re: 98.7 The Breeze: Announcers, Jingles, DJ'S, Morning Show, etc. Discussion

You would rather have syndicated Deliah over a live and local DJ? NO THANKS! Also, no Kevin O'Niell and no Chris Edmonds would be a letdown. Those are the two best AC format DJ's we have in this market and to have them doing traffic updates and weekend shifts doesn't do justice to their talent. I wo...

Re: Entercom Job Postings for 98.7 The Breeze

Of note, Chris Edmonds name is still listed on wnic.com and Kevin O'Neill still has his name listed on WDVD's website. If the air talent is already chosen, you have to wonder if Chris and Kevin are apart of the station. If not, that's a fail on Entercom's part.

Re: Sports 106.7

Wouldn't the station die without any local sports properties? I'll beat this horse until they do it, but considering what they have in there sports arsenal, Cume-less should be the ones to launch a sports station on 93.1, replacing GNASH-FM. At least if they flipped WDRQ to sports they would have th...

Re: Best Detroit stations of all time

The best stations for me occurred (mostly) when I was younger. Below are my top three. #1: Oldies 104.3 WOMC (circa 1995 through 2006 or whenever Kevin Murphy came into town and took a hatchet to the station) Oldies 104.3 had it all back in the day. A great, deep mix of music spanning the late 50's,...

Re: Predictions for 2019

If Entercom takes the Cheap Channel/Cume-less approach with 98.7 The Breeze and has voiced tracked dayparts (say Mornings and Nights) then the station is almost certain to fail right? I would imagine they aren't beating WNIC without being live and local all day and night? John Tesh in the morning ai...

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

As much as I like 98.7, at times it feels like they should change their call letters to WBLD, for weepy ballads. WBLD is licensed to the West Bloomfield School District, so maybe... I don't know that call letters matter much these days given the PPM ratings formula, however I would think WDBZ-FM (W...

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

Would it make sense for WNIC re-brand itself back to "Detroit's Nicest Rock" and bring back the Jams "It's Nice" jingles to counter act the Breeze?

Re: Predictions for 2019

I predict that GNASH will flip to sports with the Lions and Michigan State as their flagship properties . . . hopefully . . . maybe . . . probably not.

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

I think a combo of Kevin O'Neill and Lisa Jesswin (if she still does radio) would be a solid morning show for a Soft AC station. Sandy Kovach would be another excellent co-host. Rebekah Rhodes/Dina Harding would be another fine hire (again, like Lisa, if she will still do radio). I just hope Enterco...

Stephen and JoAnn would be a good fit for the new 98.7.

However, I'd prefer a music intensive morning drive, similar to the old V98.7.
Wouldn't you rather have one of Kevin O'Neill or Chris Edmonds in the morning and whichever one isn't on the afternoon drive?

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

Please hire Kevin O'Neill and Chris Edmonds. I hope they are live and local all day and evening long. I also hope they don't bring in cheap, out of town or inexperienced air talent and actually hire some Detroit veterans that people would care to listen to. That's probably too much to ask tough cons...
