Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Nov 16, 2006




Detroit News:

So, you love "The Victors". You think it's the greatest college fight song in the history of college fight songs. Just how much do you love it? Enough to listen to it for 24 hours? You'll get that opportunity beginning at 12:01 a.m. Friday when Ann Arbor Radio's WLBY 1290 AM begins playing "The Victors" and continues to play it and play it and play it some more. "With the University of Michigan football team on the verge of another national championship, we expect rabid listenership for The New 1290 WLBY," station general manager Bob Bolak said in a release... Big game report- Ann Arbor station goes all 'Victors', all the time (Thu 11/16)

Baseball was very, very good to local radio. How good? In the first Arbitrend report on the fall ratings, which give a preliminary snapshot of radio listenership, not surprisingly WXYT-AM (1270), the radio home of the Detroit Tigers, scored big. The station ranked No. 1 with men aged 18 and older at night from late September through most of October, and No. 1 with males of that age group in the 3-7 p.m. time slot, which is when "The Big Show" with Art Regner and Doug Karsch airs. Overall, adult R&B WMXD-FM (92.3) was still No. 1 with listeners aged 12 plus... Tigers give WXYT ratings home run (Thu 11/16)

Detroit Free Press:

Take Wednesday's release of the monthly radio ratings with a great big snowflake. That's because the Arbitrend ratings, which measure the past three months, don't include the expected surge in November and December ratings by WNIC-FM, which began playing all holiday music on Nov. 3. This chart will melt pretty fast. Note that WNIC did move back into the top 10 with a 4.0 score good for eighth place, boding well for its usual carol-driven final two-month listener surge... Radio ratings will change with the holiday season (Thu 11/16)
