Re: “Media Watch

"Lee continues to benefit from revenue sharing arrangements via TNI."

I don't know where to begin on this sentence. For one, Lee and Gannett co-owned TNI; this sentence makes it sound like TNI was somehow doling out money.

But more important, TNI hasn't existed for several years. It dissolved under former Star publisher John Humenik, who is what, 2-3 publishers ago? The entire building is now Arizona Daily Star. If anything, it's Gannett -- which doesn't even publish anything locally anymore -- that "continues to benefit" from a profit-sharing arrangement. Lee's Arizona Daily Star is the one doing all the earning and therefore SHOULD benefit. (But again, it's not under the auspices of TNI, which doesn't exist.)

I know you love to bag on the Star, but when you're including actual news about the place, you might want to double-check your "facts" because what you think you know might not be true anymore.

Radio isn't the only medium that goes through changes.

Of course the weakly is going to pimp Downtown radio. After all it's downtown and to the weekly nothing is any good unless it's downtown.

Re: “Media Watch

Yes, it's the heat. I'm definitely crazy from the heat. Now I just need to find an excuse for my craziness when the heat is gone. 😨

Re: “Media Watch

This is one crazy day. First I agree with AZ/DC about Keith Moon and we decide to bury the hatchet. ( And not in each others heads!!) Now I agree with Timmothy about 98.1. I also concur that the Weekly doesn't know much.
Must be the heat !!

Re: “Media Watch

98.1 KTBX rules!

I would also recommend listening to the Vinyl Confessions, Bat Country Radio, Hex Induction Hours and Search & Rescue programs on KXCI. I'll be honest though, I do not care for much else on this station. The stuff they play on most of their other programs are either great cures for insomnia or just plain grating. But, of course, opinions are like...well, you know; because of that YMMV.

Re: “Media Watch

Forget the commercial stations and tune in 98.1 fm. no talk, no commercials .....all music.
Songs you don't always hear on programmed radio.
Obviously the Weekly doesn't know it exists, but then what else is new.

Looks like Paul Cicala at KVOA has been outed:

Apology is not adequate. Hillary apologized for Benghazi and then lied continually. Not adequate.

Re: “Media Watch


I totally will miss Bobbie Jo Buel, but I believe you attributed someone else's quote to me.

Also, I'm not the Star's assistant sports editor; I'm not even in Sports.

Buel, who declined to be interviewed by the Weekly" That alone shows you how smart she is.

You're getting a good man in Pat Parris Tucson. He was outstanding in St. Louis Blues and Cardinal fox Midwest broadcasts. We will miss him.

The only good one listed is Mike Rapp. The others all suck, especially James Harris.

Re: “Media Watch

Happening today in LA is the Worldwide Radio Summit (WWRS). What's the point?
Used to attend my fair share of "radio boot camps" back in the day.
What are they going to discuss? How to make voice-tracking better?
Cuz that's about all that's left of gutted radio stations.

Re: “Media Watch

Good news that Justice is back where he belongs. He is railing on trump like a champ. But best part is putting two Tucsonans in that slot together. Rapp goes back years on KLPX. He and Justice have ten times the brain power and entertainment value as Garret Morris or whatever his name is on the AM station.

Hmm. You say Zach Clark was out on maternity leave during the NCAA Tournament. Sure you didn't you mean paternity leave?
