Wow. 950 WWJ defeats WJR by a 2:1 margin!!!

Is 760's 3.1 share a new all-time low for them?

Which dayparts are dragging 760 down?

WMXD is the top station 6.9, WLLZ dropped from a 3.8 to a 3.7 and The Breeze went from a 4.0 to a 4.1

I think WjR's biggest problem is that when one of their listeners passes away, they don't attract a new one to fill the void.


If you have a really big butt, can you get away with doing things half-assed?

Finally, CSX was knocked off of the top spot, and Fake Wheels had nothing to do with it.

Fuck you WLLZ. I hope you continue to drop.
We had such high hopes for you and you gave us the same shit. Then you doubled down on it and gave us even more of the same shit.

Gnash-FM continues to make a fool out of itself as usual.
The Breeze went up a little.
I still don't understand how people like WNIC, but whatever.
WOMC has not been hurt nor benefited from the 90s music.

Everyone pretty much stayed the same or within 0.2 shares of their April ratings except MIX and NIC

That was a phenomenal book for Mix 92.3.

They've had stratospheric ratings before, but I don't believe they've ever scored a 6.9 share (they've been in the low 6's in the past).

What's really interesting here is WDMK picked up a half share, too, and 105.1 lost no ground!

We'll see where WLLZ is at a year from now, I've said that they were not that big of a deal, It's like bringing a television show back from the 80's a second time around it is destined for failure as M.W. said before it's "Fake Wheels"

RIght, good analogy, I do wonder if the thrill is going to wear off and it's going to be like " wait this is the same stuff, every other station plays". GNASH Give it up lol!

I don't think I've ever seen Mix 92.3 on top.


it's 2019! Come on I-Heart! we don't need anymore country stations in Toledo! please Flip CKY already!

There is a H*** void for a real sports station to compete with 97.1. Too bad no one will spend the cash. On the plus side, WDFN is back in the books! Maybe Baligian pulled in a few more listeners.

I think WMXD has been on top once. It’s not my style of music so I have no idea how the station is.

Unless they change things up, Wheels has peaked. You can only have so much classic rock.

Does WJR even advertise these days?

I agree that Wheels has peaked.

Within a year, the ratings will be sub-3 share, just like every other rock or classic rock station that clueless Casey K. has ever programmed.

I have some friends in the industry who all say that the frequency is cursed since nothing ever lasts there. WLLZ will probably fall into that. Which is a shame because I believe that they had the opportunity to fill a niche and provide something unique that Detroiters want: An actual for real "New generation of classic rock". ie: great rock hits from the 80 and 90's with a few 70's thrown in to keep the old timers happy.

Unpopular opinion: Basement dweller ratings aside, outside of that awful morning show, I think Nash sounds better than it has in a while.

You are correct Sir, WLLZ truly has zero effect on any station in town, the bottom line is WLLZ SUCKS!, WCSX is losing numbers because of Dave Dahmer and J.T. both are tune out factors.
