Chris Renwick on WJR

Chris Renwick has been a breath of fresh air on WJR, compared to the foul wind of Frank Beckmann, who's currently on vacation. There's actually intelligent discussion, knowledge of the subject at hand, and younger callers to the show. With Frank, callers are people over 75, or "Mr. Positive" from Sh...

Re: Shocker - Jerry Tarrants exits Beasley

Who cares? Good riddance. Bringing low budget, unfunny carpet baggers to town is nothing to brag about. Ratings or no ratings.

Re: WCXI 1160 Republican Talk Radio

The lineup on WCXI is basically who Mark Levin is referring to when he mentions "the back bencher's" :lol 1160 may be better than 1400 for Hannity, on AM, but did Sima ever file for an FM translator? Translators, in a large metro area, are only useful if you're stationery, but at least you can say y...

Re: Westwood One News going silent end of August

I believe Westwood One News was originally one of Lew Dickey Jr's pet projects. Yet another great "brand" down the commode, apparently.

Re: Synergy is a mess

Is this why z93 in mason county is choppy and unlistenable? As before when 92.7 was on 93.1,z93 came is clear as day. In the Ludington area, 89.1 seems to be a sloppy mess of W224CA (WKLA (AM)'s translator) and WKLA-FM. 96.3 - 92.7 = 3.6 92.7 - 3.6 = 89.1 Oddly, 99.9 (which is 96.3 + 3.6) has no is...

As soon as Dahmer is off their airwaves, 94.7 will earn a preset in my car.
I removed WCSX when they fired Steve Kostan. Have not listened since. Dahmer is unacceptable on any level.

Re: Roy H Selling Off?

Great point. I am unfamiliar with the real estate on which they sit, so I excluded that from my analysis. Right on West Bay Presently, it includes the commercial building for WLDR, with a former residential house next door, also zoned commercial. My moles tell me Roy stays there when he's in town, ...

Re: Roy H Selling Off?

And that is worth about $250,000 based on the selling price of WKLT. I think you're being far too generous. Building is trashed, due to water pipes that froze and busted several years ago, and probably needs a bulldozer. Judging by what is heard (or not) on the 3 frequencies located there, the equi...

He would be fortunate to sell it for 20 percent of that price.
Funny you should pick that number. It's 650K, which is exactly what Roy paid for the original WBNZ.

Re: 1130 "The Fan" to disappear- iHeart launching new network

The website Awful Announcing had an article about the format flip. Mentioning how 1130 used to be the leader of sports talk in Detroit, but had its slow downfall starting on Obama's Inauguration day in 2009 when most of the local hosts were fired. I'll have to stream it on the internet to see what ...

Re: Synergy is a mess

Synergy isn't interested in Manistee. There's no money there. WMLQ has been listed with a broker for quite some time. There's very little "synergy" between Manistee and Ludington, so I can't imagine why they would want to add another big electric bill even further north in Bear Lake.

Re: 1130 "The Fan" to disappear- iHeart launching new network

Diversity in radio is a great thing, but this smells like more fake 'woke' pandering. But WDFN has been a dead stick for a decade what do they have to lose? I'd rather see a local legit minority broadcaster turn this into a station targeting Detroit's African American community. Nine dead sticks, t...

Any of you young whippersnappers who believe this is anything close to resembling an "original idea" by IHR, do not know your history:
