That station claims to be a CHR/Alternative Hybrid.
Celine Dion is neither, as that song is 30 years old now (recorded in 89, album released in 90).

Are you sure? O.o
Yes! WMOM is an odd station, but it works as it's #1 in its immediate area

Re: "You Win Again" by Bee Gees

From 1987. The song hit number 1 in the UK and was voted the second greatest Bee Gees song of all time! It's virtually unheard of here though and charted very poorly due to the disco backlash. The song is not disco though. It's a Soft Rock/Power Pop tune. It deserved to be H*** here. Such a shame. ...

Re: 90’s Tunes the Radio Doesn’t Play Anymore

Heard this rare song on WMOM tonight: Celine Dion - Where Does My Heart Beat Now (Celine's first English hit, hit #4 in 1991) Some other tunes not heard in a while (if ever): Michael W. Smith - Place In This World (#6 in 1991) Shai - If I Ever Fall in Love (#2 behind I Will Always Love You for two m...

Re: Fall 18 Nielsens

It's probably the best signal in Traverse City but it is been bastardized for so long going to be a long hard climb back. They aren't going to win any favor by being 100% Satellite. Did you see how many stations were listed? Dare I say the cost to restore the brand might not be worth it, The best t...

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

There is benefit to Nexstar keeping WOTV - it'll help ensure WOTV remains affiliated with ABC so that the station can continue to serve as an ever present thorn in WZZM's side, thus benefiting WOOD-TV. Nexstar / Media General / LIN have been successful in foisting WOTV & WXSP on cable systems as a ...

Re: Fall 18 Nielsens

WICA's 3.2 share is impressive considering they have no signal in Cadillac and iffy signals in Gaylord and Manistee (WLMN gets wiped out quite a bit by the 89.7 in Sister Bay, WI). It would be interesting to see how many counties WTCM-FM is #1 among terrestrial radio stations. My best guess would be...

Both all-sports FMs dropped dramatically from their pre-sports ratings levels. 97.3 is now losing to rimshots WIIL and WHAD!

Re: Predictions on how and when the shutdown ends

Bold new prediction, after both proposed bills failed in the Senate (in fact, the Democratic bill had slightly more support): Trump will do an oval office speech on January 29 (the original SOTU date), where he will announce his resignation. Over this weekend, Pence will meet with congresspeople fro...

Re: Can't Get WJBK Off-Air in SW Detroit

When I lived in Ypsilanti, I was able to get occasional pictures from WJBK with an indoor antenna. Then again, I had a third floor apartment facing Southfield. The other Detroits (WDIV, WXYZ, WMYD, WKBD, WTVS, WWJ) would usually come in no problem

Re: Predictions on how and when the shutdown ends

I voted for Trump, but I feel there's a good chance he doesn't finish his term in part due to his wall fight. I feel enough GOP representatives/senators will eventually support the Dem plan to reopen the government for a potential Trump veto to be overridden

Re: The Good Old Days of Full-Powered Analog TV

There are still some south-facing antennas in Manistee (for WZZM; WZZM's tower is slightly closer to Manistee than WGTU's tower)
