Re: “Media Watch

"I was asked to fill out a diary for a week during the summer 2015. It marks the second time that happened in four ratings periods." You think that's bad. How 'bout you do a little expose on the methodology behind the People Meters used in the top 50 radio markets.

I'm sure John thanks you, n7iqv, for doing his homework for him.

Re: “Media Watch

It should be noted that stations NOT subscribing to the ratings services usually are not included in the ratings reports. Various formats fall into the "not reported" category, such as KUAZ and KVOI in the news/talk outlets.

Re: “Media Watch

Im thrilled with the Vibe. Its at 4.4 overall, its best showing that i can remember. If it gets into the 6 plus overall ratings area they may have to change signals with another station. 97.5 is very limited, city grade signal only. Maybe 107.5 could trade places?
Im not saying that would happen but if ratings keep going up for the,Vibe that could very well happen.

I also called 92.1 FM and suggested they flip formats similar to the vibe. Their station is 2.7 overall. It would make sense, their signal is way more powerful in coverage than 97.5. Its a waiting game. Give it 2 more books and we will see if the Vibe is hype or a real deal that is catching on.

Re: “Media Watch

Said it before and I'll say it gain. In a few years local radio and tv wont matter. Its a dying industry that is being overtaken by new technology . Their audience is shrinking day by day as people find other, less commercialized ways to get news and music.

These awards are like those given out in pee-wee soccer. They are numerous, and everybody gets one just for playing.

Radio Limbo was the best station Tucson ever had.

Re: “Media Watch

Thank goodness a new spirit has arrived. KXCI has become a poor exuse (and boring) for community radio and adventures in broadcasting. I wish this guy luck.

Finally...a reason to ride on the Folleycar around downtown. I'll be the one wearing LARGE headphones to block out the noise from the other person on the choo-choo.

Re: “Media Watch

Too bad they don't have a signal that reaches my home or work area. I would definitely give this station a listen, they seem to have their thumb on the pulse of my music preferences. I wish them well whether I get a chance to listen or not.

Re: “Media Watch

KMSB's news presence would have looked "significantly more professional" when it was an independent operation if Belo had actually invested in the product and hired a production crew that could handle live broadcasts competently.

Re: “Media Watch

Interesting format for KWCX, considering that most of the demographic in that area are farmers and ranchers. I remember when the KWCX hit the air in 1975 or 1976. It was a big thing for Willcox at the time.

Rumor has it that it's a better possibility now that DirecTV and AT&T have merged.

Re: “Media Watch

I worked with Brett ("S!ick and Brett tha Man", after "The Houseparty", on ) partner I ever had. We were the last morning show before they changed format...had A LOT of fun...and got away with many things on-air (and off-air). I always hoped he and I would do another show together...…

And Ms. Germano didn't have a Midas managerial touch- just ask some of her current & former employees. Many of us are "former" for a reason.
