bet you were giggling like a schoolgirl as you wrote the 1290 article
Sure like to see how they officially log all those gratis commercials on KCUB. You'd think the board operator would have enough sense to walk out back and grab a stack of those great country songs just sitting there gathering dust.
Sure miss Dave.
I know the comment comes a week late, but since I couldn't find Media Watch online last week, here goes:
WHICH station on 97.1 got what rating?
"...Cumulus top-40 station KSZR FM 97.1 delivered a 2.0 12-plus number, its worst book of the year; Clear Channel country format KWYD 97.1 FM managed a 1.4, making it the only poor performer in an otherwise strong book for the Clear Channel cluster..."
Are Cumulus and Clear Channel doing a time-share on the frequency? That might explain the lousy ratings...
Media Watch? This had been denied for years:
Meanwhile, Janet Napolitano voice-double Andrea Kelly of AZPM is single-handedly keeping the hair-gel industry alive. The hell, woman.
Coming to this thread late but with a partially dissenting view. I'll admit to a sentimental bias in favor of the Star's digital offerings, given that I was one of the very first folks to sign up with azstarnet.com (back when the handful of subscribers would get together for drinks with Bob Cauthorn) & have maintained a Starnet aka tucson.com login ever since. Not to defend the glitches and delays, but the Star's digital versions are pretty decent. In particular, the e-edition facsimile of the print edition has a well thought out interface and has a dedicated iPad app version that is legible on a tablet. (In contrast, while the version of the TW on issuu.com is legible if clunky on a wide-screen desktop, Issuu has dragged its feet on an iOS app and forget about trying to read anything on even an iPad with retina display.)
As for the business model and the cost... I won't be able to issue a verdict on that until I find out next month whether or not I continue to be grandfathered in on the very reasonable monthly fee I've been paying for the e-edition for the last half dozen years.
James T Harris is one of the worst on local radio. He is simply terrible in his
I don't know who the Fook that guy even is. Probably sending him to another Lotus market like reno, or is that even bigger than Tucson?
Mishell sucked and was just plain unfunny. I am in favor of just playing the music
Why can't KFMA keep the More Music Mornings format instead of getting another dopey morning show?
Since a very young age I have respected, studied, admired, even loved the teachings of Jesus. But the comments above suggest that same old moral superiority that some Christians use, and have used, to condescend and control public discourse and policy. Therefore, I am not comfortable with this intrusion, no matter how well intentioned, into the public schools.
Shaw's show at 4:00 pm is horrible.
I surf in to a lot of local papers around the US (not foreign ones, so far) that stop me cold with $ demands. I always think that they must have a strong paying community that wants to remain exclusive to their area, or they don't just want anyone from outside reading their news. Nevertheless, none are very good. The ADS has changed so much in the last 40 years it is just strange. Corporations may legally be people, but they don't get it.
I feel sorry for the newspaper delivery people who get up early and take us our papers. The Star will loose a lot of customers. Hence they loose icome. Don't care about the Star employees but only the delivery folks.
Hope the Star folks are reading this.
Thanks to the Arizona Daily Star customer service rep who just confirmed there was an across the board price increase on July 1, to cover the increased cost of ink and paper. Whatever. 23.2 percent is excessive. And the timing is questionable.
Too bad it takes a low-wage front line employee to do what the Publisher can't.
Poor Phil has signed on at KGUN.
"... failed to mention the two pieces of information most key to readers: how the hell much, and how to sign up."
Remember, Chase isn't a news guy (ya know, who, what, where, when, why, how), and I'm sure the one copy editor left out there was loathe to make even one change to the stellar copy provided to her/him.
And Chase has not backed off his assertion that the cost to subscribers would not go up with this change. I have statements to the contrary. To the tune of a 23 percent jump. Guess Chase wasn't a math major, either.
A non issue until there are 11 articles a month worth reading. ADS should have just put the UofA sports coverage behind the wall. It is the only content they have that is saleable.
"In some markets paywalls have worked. In others they haven't."
Gee, I WONDER how it will pay...errrrr play in Tucson...
