Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Did WVHU and Mr. Roten even register a blip?

Congrats to the folks at WDGG!

It is funny how we are talking about how the mighty have fallen, but I have seen the same thing happen with iheartmedia stations in this area as well. But, when look at the top and you see the executive management bragging they are from America Online/(AOL)TimeWarner, Six Flags, Microsoft (Bing), Enron (yes that company that caused the 2001 recession), and Bank of America Merrill Lynch (one of the companies that caused the 2008 recession). Somebody better put together a plan to save what few mementos are left in the building at 134 4th Ave. Those koolaid drinking folk in NYC sure as hell don't know what it takes to run a successful business as everything they have touched has gone from gold to lead.

And the lead has been lost...they are no longer in the lead.

More like sinking like a lead weight. Siriusly.

I have to agree that WDGG and the Kindred Stations have been better for quite some time. I rarely flip my radio to WKEE or WTCR when I am roaming around the tri-state. But I have to admit that my dial is tuned to WNKU because I have to be in Cincy by 10am Monday. In my current line of work, that 104.1 repeater is handy.

Edit....

And if I were going to say which frequency had the best product in the tri-state for their audience, I would have to give that to Big Buck Country. I am not a fan of syndicated morning shows plus my mother can hear what is going on with the other side of the neighborhood when JB Miller gives the audience his tales.

As of January 1, I am out of the government mandate/meaningful use, health IT work and back into the groove of IT/business related, process control work for EHR sales and laboratory interface teams, and this new team is centered out of Mason, OH with internal customers scattered between north Jersey, southeastern PA, and the Ohio Valley.

Of course, having the government mandate "meaningful use" of health IT systems turned out to be a big contradiction of terms after the whole Obamacare/HHS debacle. Needless to say, the government teams for meaningful use have been pretty much scuttled in the last 8 months and with the disorganization currently plaguing Health and Human Services, the members of my old program team were transitioned to other roles.

And even though you didn't ask, I'm doing what I have done for years, but now from G Street in DC, with responsibility, currently, for the Mississippi River Valley and the South Pacific part of the country.

Been in DC just over two years now, and live in DC itself.

I was THRILLED to get out of Atlanta.

I am passing through right now, but the next time, when my wife is with me, I will have to take you up on that offer. She is always complaining how she has met very few people that I know in the tri-state.

Atlanta... (sigh)... What potential for a great city full of historical culture which has simply been overrun by a bunch of yankees that have tried to turn it into the east coast version of Los Angeles, but without the lovely climate, the beautiful sunsets, awesome museums, etc.... It was not until our spring 2013 trip to LA for a conference and we were staying in a downtown hotel where I saw from our 27th floor room the casual mosey of workers during what we would call rush hour in Philly or NYC that I realized that folks of Atlanta had failed to implement the southern California culture, but they had successfully copied the laid back lifestyle and horrible road manners of SoCal.

As for DC, I have been stalling my wife on taking a trip "inside the beltway" for about a year. My latest excuse (at the end of last month) is that crazy dude shooting at full size Ford sedans that look like cop cars because I really don't need some fool putting bullet holes in my Mercury or her SHO. I guess I have no more excuses now that I have someone to meet inside the beltway. Wait till I tell her this...... :twisted:

The part that is astounding is how they have proceeded to destroy a hefty percent of broadcast radio over the years through their acquisitions. The "homogenizing" of their product across the different markets in the US has had a negative impact on radio as a whole and probably made Apple the the richest company in the world. I know crappy radio in Philly certainly led to me purchasing an my first iPod in 2006.

Nobody asked me either (and no one may really care at all except the Interpreter) but I retired from the Corps of Engineers Planning Center of Expertise for Inland Navigation (in Huntington) last April. My wife retired from the Corps at the same time. I have been a 'reemployed annuitant' for the Corps since August working about 10 hours/week training my replacement who wasn't hired until September. That will end in a few weeks. I'm still writing about Marshall football for HerdNation.com. My wife and I will open our dog training business in a month or two after she finishes her training from the Karen Pryor Academy as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer.

Interpreter, glad to hear things are going well for you in DC. Make sure things are good and legal at HQ.
