West Michigan: Newsmakers Feb 6 - 12




Grand Rapids Press:

Country music remains on top for West Michigan radio fans. According to recent Arbitron ratings, WBCT-FM (93.7) took another first-place win -- marking its 33rd consecutive top ranking for the station. It makes morning co-host Neal Dionne a happy man. "We never take it for granted. We love our listeners, and I'm not just saying that. They are in on every bit and are a big part of our show. Sometimes, they just call to say, 'Good Moynin.' We have so much fun everyday. I can't believe we get paid for this," he said. The Arbitron ratings fall book reflect another West Michigan sweep for Clear Channel Radio. In the Grand Rapids metro market, for listeners 12 and older, B-93 is first, with a 9.5 rating, WOOD-AM (1300) is second, scoring a 7.8 rating and WSNX-FM (104.5) is third, with a 7.6 rating... B-93 remains market leader in ratings (Mon 2/6)

Grammys? What Grammys? Who needs Mariah Carey, Diddy and U2 when you've got Organissimo, Sweet Japonic and Paucity? Who needs a tuxedo when you've got pajamas? The Jammie Awards, WYCE-FM's (88.1) annual show honoring the best in local and national music, didn't attempt the silly pageantry of the Grammy Awards (taking place tonight, incidentally), but Tuesday night's ceremony did offer plenty of live music, some friendly competition and a whole lotta love for a whole lotta local musicians... Jazz trio lands top Jammie (Wed 2/8)
