102.5 trades in Reality for R&B

Post by famousprod » Fri Jul 24, 2020 9:41 am

They flipped 102.5 to R&B and are bringing back Steve Harvey in the Morning. The fact iHeart didn't do it probably shows this will not be a strong play anymore after 104.9's flip in March. What are your thoughts? ... nd-rapids/

They need to fix their audio on the FM if they expect anybody to listen to it. Very low modulation and not in stereo. The AM sounded pretty good when I tuned it in yesterday, but it's been off the air more than on in the past few weeks.

So stupid of iFart not to do Adult R&B on 101.3...

Programming synergies would be immediate (Mix 92.3 in Detroit), and they could run the very popular Steve Harvey in mornings.

Station would get a 2.5 to 3 share all day long, which would far exceed 101.3's anemic ratings.

Using Robinhood for online equities and options trades is a terrible idea. USE A LEGITIMATE BROKER-DEALER INSTEAD! (Fidelity, Schwab, TD Ameritrade, Edward Jones, etc.)

C’mon Mark. Stupid and iHeart belong in the same sentence all the time!
