Don’t get to see the actual book, JB, just the generic stuff they put online. But know people who actually get to read it. They too seemed quite pleased. The public is obviously tuning out the hypocritical gas bags that are constantly fouling the airwaves.
The Tribe will be playing soon, so WTAM’s ratings will benefit. I bought a dozen sun visors with Chief Wahoo on them for friends and family. The classics never go out of style.
From what I’ve heard from several media people I know….Jawbreaker’s so right: Triv’s ratings in the past few years have dropped like a rock. Who’s strong now in his previous core demo (men 25-54)??? From what I hear WMMS has dominated that demo in drive times for more than 5 years, and of late 923The Fan is on the upswing.
From what I’ve heard from a former ARB rep a short few years ago: politically-oriented talkers appeal mainly to men age 55+ (maybe 65+?)….and that women & adults 18-49 have drifted to other formats.
JB….I’m not sure if we’ve ever met. I believe I know who you are…but won’t say so here. But, if you’re who I think you are, the late Chuck Collins was a good friend of yours…and thought the world of you. I know. He told me.
And, you’re a radio lifer. The industry needs more folks like you.
If WJW does officially flip here’s hoping they employ the strategy of burying the Sinclair “must-run political commentary packages” in the middle of the night like some other recently acquired Sinclair stations have done.
