Re: TV Guide

My in-laws subscribe to the Monroe Evening News, which has a TV listing section every Sunday. It has a grid of stations that cover which channels that appear on Dish, DirecTV and many cable systems that cover different parts of the county. But the grid makes no mention of over-the-air channels and ...

Re: WMOM shuts down

It would be difficult - but not impossible - to run profitably as a standalone. My guess is 45 North Media (operator via LMA of Eagle 101.5) is probably one of only two or three for-profit broadcasters who I could see being interested in WMOM. Dom & Jen Theodore - who have two stations in Cadillac ...

Re: March Nielsen numbers are out for Detroit radio

I know, I know,, corporate radio and Cumeless would never do it, but I would love for a country station that went outside the box and played only real country. That is, a format that dives deep into the independent and off-music row scene in addition to playing major label country artists. A format...

Maybe Roy H. will make a play for it.

Re: Longest Tigers Affiliate?

The Tigers in Grand Rapids were on a Fetzer owned station WJEF-AM 1230 when I first started listening to the games on radio around 1959. They continued on 1230 after Fetzer sold the station and it became WCUZ until sometime in the late 80's or so. The Tigers have also been heard through the years o...

Re: Longest Tigers Affiliate?

I believe WBRN in Big Rapids has been airing the Tigers since the early to mid 60's. I remember listening to the tigers on BRN when we were in the area on vacation. AM went off at sunset, but the games continued on the FM. I remember when the Tigers were on 97.3 WDEE in Reed City. My grandpa tried ...

Re: WWJ/WKBD launches news operation

FTBallfan asserted "smaller Grand Rapids" supports "four newsrooms." As someone who grew up in West Michigan and visits the area regularly, I can tell you very little news viewership north of Allegan & Barry counties goes to WWMT. Their bread & butter is the I-94 corridor. Little of the news depart...

I wonder if Cumulus has bigger plans up their sleeve, such as making 97.5 a simulcast of Thunder 107.3

Re: WMOM shuts down

My gut feeling tells me Strong Tower Radio (purveyors of Seventh Day Adventist programming) could be an interested party. One commercial buyer I could envision purchasing this station is John Yob - the guy who recently purchased 106.3 MHz near Traverse City. Another commercial buyer I could envisio...
