And I’ll just add this to answer a previous complaint: as a rule, RadioInsight and its predecessors have welcomed local TV conversation on local radio boards.
No, not discussion of “Survivor” or “American Idol”, but about local TV stations and their personalities.
As a participant, I welcome such things. For one, even if you don’t follow local TV, many personalities have radio backgrounds, or vice versa, or skip back and forth between the two.
I don’t speak for RadioInsight or even for this Cleveland board on this forum, though it is “powered” by OMW…I am not a moderator or staffer here. We get here because we’re part of the RadioInsight Content Network.
I’m originally from metro Detroit, so I’d love to be able to hear Tigers games on the radio again. Here in North Ridgeville, I can barely get 97.1 the Ticket, as Mix 97.1 puts a clear signal in my car out to the 71-480 interchange. Sometimes I can get it (and a lot of other Detroit stations) deeper into the area with proper tropo conditions
If Cumulus ever had a chance, that chance evaporated faster than their collapsed stock price. The company is in a literal death spiral and destined for bankruptcy. Meanwhile, Greater Media had no shot as they are tied to the Pistons, and putting the games on sister WRIF wouldn’t have been realistic. And iHeartMedia? Please. The lights at WDFN were turned off years ago.
That left CBS and WXYT-FM, and quite frankly, CBS was bidding against itself.
Recorded in Ultra Stereo, the ultimately superior cousin to Normal Stereo!
