Most Subservient Sportstalk Sidekick

Sully on the Mike Valenti show
Matt on the Ron Cameron show
Anyone else

I'd give the slight edge to Sully, with his nervous attempts to stand up to Valenti, who knows he can walk all over Sully. Matt occasionally tries to stand up to Cameron, but still needs to mature some more, like Alex.

Re: AAA - can it still work in Detroit?

How does one categorize or fall into AAA? I thought it was largely singer-songwriter, heavily acoustic. It just sounds like a vaguely worded format so how much subgenre variety should such a station play? While I dig select tracks, I always called it the "too hip for the room" format. Works WELL in...

Re: WJR hits another all-time low and takes a big plunge from last month's already terrible numbers!

Very happy to see the trend for WRCJ, the classical/jazz station (1.9>2.3>2.7). Wonder if their new mid-day host Peter Whorf influenced that? He has the name recognition from his father Mike, and it's natural that he would have a more energetic, youthful appeal than the late Chris Felcyn (R.I.P.).

Re: Local News Stations in Dayton To Cover Mass Shooting

I do not get it. Fox 2 Detroit and Local 4 have teams in Dayton to cover the news surrounding the mass shootings. My question is why? CNN, Fox News, NBC, ABC and other national news outlets are there (as well as, in El Paso) with their teams covering the events from a "Global" perspective. Also, yo...

Re: The Breeze

Lately, the Breeze's playlist could be described as "Black music for white folks."

That's not a complaint, because I enjoy listening to Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Anita Baker, etc.

Just wonder how long it will last as their playlist continues to "evolve."

Re: Moronic WDIV Personalities

Wow. Mara MacDonald, after the debate, was completely moronic. She did a straight report on the debate, but after the package, she started analyzing and started her next 3 sentences with, "I think." No one wants your analysis, Mara. Go buy another low rent hat. Then in another story, Jermont said, ...

Re: WOMC All 90’s Weekends

What would they play?

I glanced through this list and didn't see much that I even remember.

But the teenagers of that decade are now hitting their 30s, with established careers and more income, so it's worth a try.

Amy Andrews :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: 5 or 6 years ago I would have agreed. She was incredibly hot. It looks to me like shes done something to her face though and its not for the better. Still generally attractive and a great figure too. I agree. Sure looks like some man-made improvements ...

The writer of that bio seems to not be an English speaker but typed the article in his native language and then used Google translator.
That's probably true, but its ornate creativity probably came close to what the original writer intended.

Re: How much of the news show is scripted?

For those that worked in the business, just how much of the local broadcasts are scripted and how closely do the anchors have to follow the script? I know the actual stories are written and they mostly follow the teleprompter for those (which makes sense), but how much of the banter and transitiona...

Re: Unique Radio Experiences

In the summer of 1978, Ted Nugent was on one of the rock stations promoting a concert he was doing that evening at Cobo (which I saw). The radio host asked him how he felt about the Detroit riots from 11 years earlier. Nugent said he was living in another state at the time and said, "My first reacti...

In the up-and-coming department Ali Hoxie deserves a spot. Looks to be a lot taller when in the studio vs the field shots. I've been wondering why they've been using Ali as a traffic reporter. Is that the only way she can get in a full work week? Do they always need four people for chit chat and sy...
