Flint/Tri-Cities: Newsmakers Jan 19, 2007




Flint Journal:

The drive is still alive at Cars 108, but the race track got a little jammed up in the fall radio ratings. Perpetual ratings frontrunner WCRZ-FM (107.9) stayed ahead of the field, something it's done for the better part of the past 15 years. Besting the competition in the 12-plus ratings, Arbitron's most general measurement, has been a tradition at the adult contemporary station. So has the No. 2 finish of urban adult contemporary WDZZ-FM (92.7). But CRZ dropped from 11.7 share last spring to 9.4 in the fall. DZZ downshifted from 8.2 to 6.9... WCRZ-FM hangs on to lead among area radio stations in the ratings (Fri, 1/19)

Question Mark, the man who gave us "96 Tears," has been crying a few of his own since his house burned down. The Jan. 11 fire destroyed the Vienna Township home, four decades worth of memorabilia and five pets, including four of his seven Yorkshire terriers. But a few rays of sunshine have been seeping through these gray, wintry days as fans and friends from the area, the country and the world step up to help out the beleaguered rock 'n' roll pioneer, who didn't have home insurance and doesn't have enough money to rebuild... Friends, fans pitch in to help Question Mark (Fri, 1/19)
