On the other hand, if it offers up Mojo in the Morning from Detroit, it could succeed.
I think WSNX would agree to disagree. That station saw very little return on an imported show and just had it's worst overall book in over 20 years. They would be smart to go back to local but corporate has let that boat sail.

Is it due to Mojo? For a while, WSNX had very nice numbers with Mojo in mornings.

I think SNX sounds like a neglected station in general. Very little stationality.

I agree it would be great to see SNX go local in mornings again, but I think the main issue is the general sound of the station.

Hardcore hip hop Magic 104.9 has probably had at least a minor impact on 104.5, too.

Most radio managers are incapable of running a damn popsicle stand!

Cannot believe how horrendously piss poor 106.5's processing sounds over the air!!! Complete disgrace.

The audio sounded MUCH better when I visited Grand Rapids last weekend.

I wonder how long it took to get that straightened out?

The whole point of the move would've been to give the Tigers a good FM signal locally, but as it turned out, the brain trust on West Main failed to perform proper due diligence on their Tigers baseball contract. So, FM 96.5 listeners were treated to the Cubs instead. A major let down, I'm sure, for folks who lived in the null of AM 590's nighttime signal.
If I may toss in my $1.02 (compulsive tip), the Cubs only aired on 96.5 when there was a conflict with both 590 and 1660, which happened at least once to my recollection, if not more. The Cubs were, unless the Tigers and Red Wings were playing at the same time, property of 1660.
