Re: Big 95.5 Chicago

While I agree that Big 95.5 might be dead man walking, you're forgetting that iHM already owns a gold-based AC station in Chicago, 93.9 Lite FM. https://939litefm.iheart.com/music/recently-played/ Lite FM's playlist is much closer to Detroit's 98.7 than Detroit's 100.3. If 95.5's classic country wee...

Re: ABC12 Great Lakes, Bay Region, News Room

I never saw what the damn problem was with "Tri-Cities."

Are there any organizations more useless than regional chambers of commerce?

Re: Whitmer Misses The Mark

Why do hospitals need approval from the state or feds to procure COVID-19 tests? Perhaps the supplier in question from Southfield either (a) hasn't received FDA approval or (b) hasn't done an effective job of marketing itself to regional hospitals and other health providers? Similarly, maybe health ...

Re: New Nielsen Audio ratings survey for Grand Rapids - a few interesting twists!

They tried when The Fox first launched in 2000 (or was it 2001?) and when the station relaunched as The Brew. Bob & Tom was not a cheap show to run and earned very respectable ratings for several years when 101.3 carried it. You are correct; the playlist is a nationally developed playlist with zero ...

Channel 7 looks very flat footed with its news coverage this early evening

June 2020 Auto Show relaunch - CANCELLED! Channel 7 devotes a 10 second mention. Zero mention of the fact that the reason it was cancelled is because FEMA will be using TCF Center (Cobo Center) as a field hospital for six months. President Trump is considering declaring a mandatory shelter-in-place ...

Re: Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer expected to issue coronavirus ‘Stay at home’ order

I don't have "King Chuck" in my banned names list. I could be mistaken, but I believe he chose to discontinue posting voluntarily.

Sorry for the mix up, Colonel. My compliments from earlier were indeed meant for you!

Re: On a scale of 0-10, how worried are you about coronavirus?

Worth noting, however, is that while I can't find the entire Taiwanese study without paying for it, the abstract indicates that the suicide rates are somewhat mitigated by government welfare. Meaning, the stimulus package that was just passed will actually reduce suicide rates. Financial ruin does ...

Re: 102.7 wmom back on air

Over 400 *new* Facebook postings to the WMOM page from folks who missed the station and are excited to see it come back to life.

That is a phenomenal response. I've seen new station launches in Grand Rapids that have garnered no more than a few dozen Facebook postings!

Re: Trump administration blocking PPE and other supplies to Michigan

Not sure if this is a case of the Feds blocking orders or suppliers picking & choosing whose orders get filled first.

Re: Trump attacks our Governor?

I completely agree that Whitmer should've requested the declaration sooner. Probably should've been made at the start of the work week - Tuesday at the very latest - given how things were trending. https://www.clickondetroit.com/news/local/2020/03/25/michigan-gov-whitmer-beaumont-hospital-system-alm...

Re: Poor production quality during coronavirus

I kinda like it. It's MTV Cribs mixed with local news. I don't think any of the news anchors in Detroit are broadcasting from home, but some of the reporters have filed reports from home. In Grand Rapids, some of the news anchors are doing the news live from their living room. Susan Shaw of News 8 i...

Re: Trump attacks our Governor?

I think that had a lot to do with it...certainly. I also know a lot of folks in Detroit rely on transportation by bus. I doubt DDOT is following strict sanitation procedures. Those people then go to their place of employment, church, voting booths, wherever and spread those germs everywhere. Governo...

Re: Andrew Cuomo for President?

BMW - the very first sentence of the news report you quoted states: "Trump said that Pence “calls all the governors..." So, I guess I"m failing to see the importance of the omitted sentence. Trump wants everyone to kiss his ass and tell him how great he is nonstop. If you dare criticize his administ...
