KVOA is behind the times and so left leaning, that I don't watch them anymore. This whole debacle says a lot about the company.

Go ahead but NASA announced Monday that temps have dropped the last two years.

Don't bother to make excuses.

Can I just say this is a station who employs a climate change denying meteorologist?

Re: “Media Watch

Sorry, SonoranWinds, but your statement is completely inaccurate.

Why else do you think Shuster hasn't mentioned local TV News ratings in this column in more than a year?

"According to Mendelson,..."

"Well, according to Mendelson,... "

"Mendelson says..."

"At that meeting, says Mendelson, ..."

Well, at LEAST you confirmed the facts of this story with Multiple sources.

This is weak, even by YOUR standards, Shuster.

This is a blatant smear job.

Shame on you. Shame on your Editor.

BTW, readers, I looked it up. The firing occurred more than 2 months ago.

Do you file your stories via Pony Express, John?

Re: “Media Watch

Traveling Man..Consultants hapened to radio. Bunch of know nothng but sales radio owners hired consultants to program their stations and these consultants sell the same thing (format) to different stations all over the country.
Someone who knows and loves music and is capable of programing their own show doesn't have a chance against the corporate mentality.
Remember how fine radio was when FM first hit ?

Re: “Media Watch

for good local radio, the only real option in Tucson is KXCI. However, the Cave out of Benson, KRIM out of Payson, and a really good station out of Wilcox are alternatives

Re: “Media Watch

Doesn't syndicated programming only harm the employees of radio stations in the long run? According to this article this particular show is on 108 radio stations. Meaning 108 people who once had a job at their local radio station have now been replaced by an automated/syndicated show. And there must be several dozen syndicated programs out there for the many different formats. I travel for work and always hear the same programs (coast to coast) on a variety of stations. It is getting terribly boring listening to traditional radio. What ever happened to fresh and and fun local radio?

Re: “Media Watch

97.5 is a far better station anyway, looking forward to continued slow jamz on Sunday nights

Re: “Media Watch

I listen to ESPN while working because of the repetition of music on KFMA. What bothers me the most and what may be hurting KQTH is the obscene amount of commercials they play vs the actual content of the show. I understand the need to pay the bills but it's out of hand. You hear commentary for a few minutes and they again have to break for commercials. Also, some of their content is due to lack of on air presence and personality. Take for instance, Soccer Talk on Saturdays. The host talks in monotone with no inflection in his voice. I like soccer and FC Tucson but this show may as well be talking about the finer points of embalming. He is killing the show and the listeners by not having any on-air personality. Radio in Tucson is in trouble for sure.

Re: “Media Watch

You cant tell how a station ranks from the meaningless overall ratings of 6+. Thats why they are givin away free. You need to see the breakdown of 18-34, and 25 to 54 age demo to see how it's affecting KIIM FM. And where the listening audience is going. I highly doubt WILD Country with its limited signal range is affecting KIIM FM greatly.

"The Max and Shannon morning show placed fifth in the market"
Where does the morning show on 97.1 (Bobby Bones) rank?

Re: “Media Watch

As an old white guy, I am enjoying the new format at 97.5, the Vibe. Some of that early classic rap was pretty good, and the only other station playing it was Hot 98.3 during the lunch hour, and sometimes 106.3 The Groove.

Re: “Media Watch

Does the drop of 99.5 and the Max and Shannon show have anything to do with an increase on 97.1's Country morning show with the Bobby Bones show from iHeart?

Re: “Media Watch

The article fails to mention that, just like local TV, overall numbers of listeners is dropping like a rock. The stations are battling for an every shrinking audience.
There are alternatives taking radios (and tv's) place.
There will always be local radio, just fewer stations.

Re: “Media Watch

Forrest Carr is a fucking asshole. He hates Jews, blacks, and Hispanics. I too, worked for him and he made my life a living hell. I'm so happy he has cancer and hope he dies a very painful death. But I don't want it to be that slow. I want that motherfucker off this earth. Then maybe I'll pay his wife a visit and drop loads all over this girl, who obviously has a grandfather fetish. Rot in hell, Forrest.

Ps have a nice day :)
