It appears that WRIF is taking more of a hit from WLLZ than CSX is. Maybe some disgruntled Drew & Mike fans? I just don't see how CSX stays in the top position with it's narrow playlist and lame airstaff. Also appears that WOMC has permanently lost some of its audience to its sister station, The Breeze, down the hallway. Too much playlist overlap!

non-anon bob,isn't that because WLLZ seems to skew much younger (I don't know if my opinion is valid,but ...) than WRIF,which has a near-half-century of mining the classic/ hard rock/metal playlist ?

Possibly, borderboy, but I haven't seen their comparative demographics. I much prefer Wheels to The Riff, especially in morning-drive.

CSX plays the oldest music, so it will continue to win.
Very simple.

The J is tanking. Time for Roberta to hang it up.

Nonsense. Newsradio 950 always gets a winter bump because of weather conditions and how they affect traffic, schools, etc. This is a normal spring regression to its typical ratings.

I agree, WWJ will always be in the Top 10. In every major market the Newsradio Stations do great.

And yet there are extremely few stations with that format.

OT, one of their morning announcers goes by the name "Kate T".
When finishing her announcements, she would say " Kate T for WWJ". This was confusing to me at first, as I heard it as "KT4WWJ", like a ham call.
Recently, I've noticed that the "for" has been taken out

WRIF's numbers are back to where they were for the most part when 106.7 The D was a decent ratings performer.

WRIF is overloading on Pink Floyd, Zeppelin and Tom Petty these days, which is a bad strategic move. That move is only going to alienate P1's who don't find 106.7 appealing, and at the same time, it isn't enough of a shift to win back listeners who enjoy predominantly 80s & 70s rock.

I think 98.7 The Breeze and 106.7 Fake Wheels are both reasons 104.3 WOMC has failed to rebound into the 6 share range, but if 98.7 is only shaving off WOMC's top end, then Entercom doesn't have much to worry about.

When multiple stations in this market play Classic Rock, there are about 11 shares worth of listening to go around. Such was the case when Doug-FM had a heavy classic rock lean, 106.7 The D was running strong, and WCSX was doing its thing.

WRIF is getting it taken to them on 2 fronts.

Even though 89X isnt in the ratings with WRIF playing Floyd/Petty will push more lsiteners to a pure active rock of 89X and listeners looking for an alternative to WRIF have taken to WLLZ.

WRIF has a hard balancing act to overcome.

89X is probably around a 1 share. I can’t remember the last time I saw any advertising on this side of the border; probably when they still had the sales office in Bingham Farms.

CIDR is also probably around a 1 share. I don’t even know what they play these days.

95.9, 100.7, CKLW and CKWW probably combine for a 0.5-0.7 share, in other words not a factor.



It’s hilarious that WDFN is still a big fat zero! What a waste of 50,000 watts!
