Because of all the time shifting, many people go to 560 KSFO on iHeart Radio. I'm tired of programming people who shift certain programs just because they don't like their politics. And replace them with the disturbed panderer Mitch Albom. By sticking his show in between the rest, it drives listeners away.

Another talk station is definitely needed there are a ton of shows that could be aired in Detroit, I have an app actually 2 apps on my phone, Right Talk and Left Talk both are actually pretty good for Talk shows, the Detroit Market is under served for talk shows both Right and Left.

1130 or 1270 will not switch unless the stations are sold.

The only other station even trying talk is 910, and that’s barely.

Peak traffic on the afternoon drive in Detroit starts at 4PM. For a number of years, 760 carried the first two hours of Hannity's show live. He replaced Albom in the 3p to 5p slot (Albom originally aired from 3p to 6p).

Years later, Hannity was replaced by Savage in the 3p to 5p slot when Lew Dickey decided to cancel Hannity from all large and major market Cumulus stations.
I have absolutely no memory of Hannity being in PM drive on WJR. None. When I left the Golden Tower for the last time, he was still on at 7PM. The next time I heard Hannity, he was on WDTK. It goes to show you how seldom some of us tune past WJR, I guess :lol
Lol it happens.

910 is comedy radio.

Hey, I would love to hear Jim Bohannon in Detroit. He skews slightly to the right. But, he has a newsman's sense of fairness. On my way home at night, I have to listen to him on KDKA, which fades in and out. Strangely, I don't ever recall Bohannon being cleared in Detroit. I wonder why?

Bohannon is an excellent radio talk show host, I used to enjoy him from the Larry King days, I believe Bohannon did weekends at that time (in the 90’s).

I remember hearing Jim Bohannon on 1270 just before they morphed into all-sports. He’s not red-meat so many talkers don’t clear him now.

Yep, he substituted for King for years. Then, he inherited the job. Hail! The Mutual Broadcasting System! "The feeling is Mutual."

WXYT Talkradio 1270 was a great Detroit talker loved it.

The wrestler’s name is Jim Duggan. Jeff Dugan is a fictional character from the movie “FM” from 1978. Great movie by the way.

Yep, I remember Bohannon briefly on 1270. But, it was ever so briefly. Also, does anybody remember that the only place King could get cleared on was AM1310? King was King of the World talk show-wise. He was on 50,000 waters all over the country. But, had a hard time clearing Detroit!

WDTK should move to 910 should the opportunity ever arise.

If WDTK really wanted to be something, they would swap formats with WLQV. I don’t see it happening.
