Traverse City Record-Eagle:

Ralph Soffredine is fed up with "bookend" holes in the ground at each end of Front Street downtown. "It is embarrassing to see that," said Soffredine, a city commissioner. "How long do you wait before you say to someone ... 'don't just leave a hole there or a fence around there forever'" ... Much of the clamor has focused on Federated Properties' empty lot at 124 W. Front St. and the unfinished Clovelly Broadcast Centre at 101 N. Park St ... developer Roy Henderson's property a few blocks east at the corner of Front and Park streets has been empty for years. Henderson put in a foundation for the Clovelly building, but hasn't done any construction since 2001, due to architecture and building height disputes, as well as the poor economy... Holes in ground downtown cause concern (Thu, 1/10)

It's more than a compliment when strangers say they like Ann Bardens-McClellan's voice. It's a sign that they're tuning in to her radio show. The award-winning poet is co-host of Michigan Writers on the Air, broadcast the last Saturday and Sunday of each month on Interlochen Public Radio (IPR). Also hosted by Aaron Stander, an award-winning mystery novelist and reviewer, the program features conversations with -- and readings by -- local and visiting writers...

Great news for listeners of news/talk/sports WBRN AM 1460 in Big Rapids as the FCC has granted station owner Mentor Partners special temporary authority (STA) to simulcast the AM station on an FM translator at 107.7 FM. The STA, which is good for six months, was granted on February 20th and fills-in coverage for the AM especially in outlying areas of Big Rapids, including Green, Big Rapids, and Colfax townships.

WBRN does not provide interference-free reception in these areas during the sunset and early morning hours when AM 1460 must operate with reduced power and compete with interference from co-channel and adjacent channel stations. The application with the FCC claims that interference issues severely curtail the "ability to receive local programming including Big Rapids High School sports play-by-play, Ferris State University sports play-by-play, public affairs programming, and such significant news as morning and evening traffic announcements, weather, school closings, etc."

Jeffrey J. Scarpelli, president of Mentor Partners which owns WBRN along with country WWBR-FM 100.9 and Hot AC WYBR-FM 102.3 in Big Rapids, explains that the application for this transmitter was submitted in 2003 and that two more translator applications are on file for the Reed City and Morley areas to further fill-in WBRN's night time signal. "We hope that the FCC will grant these applications on a permanent basis by this summer. Over the last 10 years the population of Big Rapids has moved farther and farther away from the city limits and WBRN's night time signal doesn't cover these areas. The addition of the FM signal for WBRN will also be promoted on WWBR, WYBR and via a direct mail campaign."

The FCC is currently studying if the use of FM translators for rebroadcasting AM stations will be allowed on a nationwide basis, with certain distance restrictions. The grant of the STA in Big Rapids is the first time the FCC has allowed a Michigan AM station to rebroadcast its signal on an FM translator.

 

Great Lakes Loons Purchase WYLZ and will change format to All-Sports

ESPN 100.9The Great Lakes Loons have announced the purchase of WYLZ FM 100.9 from the Last Bastion Trust, with financial assistance from the Michigan Baseball Foundation, for $325,000. Effective Tuesday, March 25th, the station's country format will be dropped and be replaced with sports as ESPN 100.9-FM. The station has applied to change its call sign to WLUN.

The station was previously owned by Citadel Broadcasting and was put into trust to be sold last year as part of a deal that added a number of stations formerly owned by ABC/Disney into the Citadel portfolio.

ESPN 100.9-FM will carry ESPN Radio’s flagship weekday programs Mike and Mike in the Morning (6am-10am), featuring former NFL lineman Mike Golic and Sportscenter anchor Mike Greenberg; The Herd (10am-1pm), with Colin Cowherd; and the Mike Tirico Show (1pm-3pm), featuring versatile play-by-play broadcaster and Michigan native Mike Tirico, Sportscenter anchor Scott Van Pelt, ESPN reporter Michelle Tafoya, and College Gameday co-host Kirk Herbstreit.

In addition, Bill Simonson's "The HUGE Show" will be heard weekdays from 3pm-6pm on ESPN 100.9-FM. The station will also carry various other ESPN Radio programs during night and weekend hours.

The station will continue to be the flagship radio home for Great Lakes Loons baseball, carrying all regular season and post-season games, plus the 2008 Midwest League All-Star Game and Homerun Derby, powered by Dow Corning.

Loons President and General Manager Paul Barbeau noted that the opportunity to purchase the station was “too good to pass up” for several reasons. By owning a radio station, the Loons are able to secure a flagship station for the team’s radio broadcasts for as long as the team owns the station. The radio station also provides an opportunity to further promote the team, upcoming games and the charitable initiatives of the Michigan Baseball Foundation.

Like the Loons, the new ESPN 100.9-FM will operate as a non-profit organization. The radio station will provide an additional revenue stream for the Michigan Baseball Foundation, which along with the Loons has helped generate over $350,000 in charitable donations during the Loons’ first season. The station’s purchase also corresponds with the Foundation’s mission of promoting local economic development.

ESPN 100.9-FM will operate from the Citadel Broadcasting studios in Saginaw. After the conclusion of the baseball season, construction will begin on a state-of-the-art broadcast studio in the Dow Diamond press box, overlooking the baseball field.

Brad Golder, currently the Loons’ director of broadcasting and media relations and the team’s play-by-play broadcaster, will serve as the program director of ESPN 100.9-FM. Golder previously served as the operations manager and executive producer for the Atlanta Braves Radio Network (Clear Channel, Atlanta) and as a producer for WWTN and WNFN (Cumulus, Nashville).

ESPN 100.9-FM has an immediate opening for a sales manager. Interested applicants can send their resumes to ESPN 100.9-FM, c/o Job Opportunities; PO Box 365; Midland, MI 48640. The station will also be hiring a production manager, a traffic manager and several other positions soon.

ESPN 100.9-FM provides terrific marketing opportunities for businesses looking to reach the station’s growing sports talk audience. Companies interested in marketing and sponsorship opportunities with the Tri Cities’ new ESPN 100.9-FM should contact Karrie Sells at 989-837-6137 or ksells@loons.com.

Big Country hires a Cook

Glenn 'Casey' Cook, formerly of WNBY and Eagle 96.7 in Newberry, is taking his 'Casey & the Coffee Crew' Morning Show to Big Country WJPD FM 92.3 in Marquette and will also be the new station manager, program director and oversee the creative services department.

Northern Star Broadcasting Marquette General Manager Tammy Johnson expressed, "Casey is going to be a great addition to the Big Country team and will lead them with his experience and attention to detail. We are excited about everything he brings to the table and fits in nicely with the new direction we want to take with the radio station. Big Country just got bigger!"

Cook commented, "The whole staff is young and enthusiastic and are ready for the challenge to reach the next level. Tammy Johnson is a wonderful woman who has a deep passion for radio and wants to take Big Country to new heights, along with the other stations in the cluster. We immediately hit it off and everyone is ready to get to work so that we can attain and surpass the new goals set in place. It will be exciting times for the central and western U.P. and for Big Country!"

'Casey' begins his new role this week and will be broadcasting the new morning show on Big Country in mid-May, while serving Marquette and surrounding communities with live and local content, replacing the syndicated Young & Verna Show. Outgoing as program director was Ariane who left for personal reasons.

Johnson also noted that the station's new midday host is Stephanie Langlois who moves from crosstown soft rock WQKS-FM 101.9 and also becomes WJPD's production director.

 

CMU, 9&10 News expand partnership

A relationship between Central Michigan University and a local television station has expanded to give CMU's aspiring broadcasters professional positions and valuable experience working on newscasts - all while they are still in school.

CMU's School of Broadcast and Cinematic Arts and WWTV/WWUP-TV in Cadillac have broadened a five-year partnership to now train student interns as producers for the station's newscasts, pay them for their work and, potentially, hire them on as employees.

"The idea is that they'll become staff members if they are successful and if positions open," said CMU BCA faculty member Rick Sykes, adviser to the university's "News Central 34" nightly news program. "It's a great opportunity and an enhancement of our existing partnership."

Kevin Dunaway, the station's news director, said CMU's BCA students "always work hard" and "are usually ahead of the game, and those are the types of candidates we are looking for.

"CMU has a great broadcasting program," he said, noting that the station has CMU interns most every semester. "CMU's BCA students typically have a better hands-on experience than most other places we draw our interns from. We have a great amount of respect for how they train their students at CMU."

The original partnership between the university and the station provided production internship opportunities to CMU BCA students who had completed related course work. In 2005, the relationship expanded to include a general-assignment reporting position for an experienced "News Central 34" reporter or anchor who, upon selection by Dunaway, would endure a reporter "boot camp" and eventually become a weekend reporter for the station.

CMU alumnus Ryan Raiche, who completed the boot camp, became a general assignment reporter for the station while still a student and is now a Traverse City Bureau reporter for TV 9&10 and its sister station, WFQX-TV in Cadillac, typically appearing on WFQX's 10 p.m. newscast.

"The partnership between CMU and TV 9&10 got my foot in the door," said Raiche. "It provided me the perfect opportunity to prove myself - not by being the perfect reporter, but by showing potential. Any internship is helpful, but the partnership with TV 9&10 is more than any internship."

Chuck Meers and his wife, Paula, don't watch a whole lot of television. But the analog set in their house may be on more often these days after Meers' new digital converter box -- bought in anticipation of the broadcast signal switch to all-digital next year -- provided an unexpected surprise: more channels. "I'm very pleased with it," said Meers, who used to get the three basic local stations on antenna: 7&4, 9&10 and 29&8. "Now, we get nine channels." Like millions of TV viewers across the country, Meers bought the box to make sure his television set remains usable after Feb. 17, 2009, when broadcasters stop transmitting the traditional analog signal and switch to an all-digital signal...

WNBY AM begins season-long coverage of Timberwolves Midget hockey

Today, Saturday November 8th, marks the start of a full season of coverage for the Newberry Timberwolves Midget Hockey Team on AM1450 WNBY. This afternoon's game at 2:15pm has the Timberwolves in the Alger Centennial Arena skating against Munising in their first game of the year. The Timberwolves were last years' U.P. Champions and went on to the State Championship.

Play-by-play for Timberwolves Hockey will be handled by broadcast veteran Casey Cook for WNBY and will cover over 20 regular season games, with additional coverage provided for the U.P. Playdowns.

"This is a first for any station in Newberry to provide coverage of a team in any sport outside of normal high school sports broadcasts," according to Cook. "Being Newberry's Sports Leader, we thought it would be a big boost for this team to broadcast their games this season and follow them down the road as they try to get back to the State Championship. Most of the team returns from last years' squad and it should be some real exciting hockey for the fans in Newberry."

TV 7&4 is reporting sad news as the station is saying good-bye to their friend, colleague and mentor Dave Walker. You may know Dave had esophageal cancer, and despite a very brave battle, he lost that fight Thursday morning. The station is honoring Dave with a tribute, a sliver of full life where he touched more people than he could have ever have known. Eugene Telma was a Northern Michigan boy, growing up in his home town of Ludington, his ties to this region were strong and life long. He'd later change his name for his broadcasting career. And even those closest to him knew him as we did, Dave Walker. And he could warm up a room, just by walking through the doors. Everyone would yell, 'Dave!' and he would just smile. Dave first discovered his skill as a broadcaster while studying at Michigan State. He graduated with a degree in communication. You didn't have to spend much time with Dave to know that the Spartans and storytelling were two of his life long passions. He was an anchor at TV 7&4, but he was always a radio man first.

Alpena News:

Charter Communications and Alpena's WBKB have been affiliated since the cable giant provided its service in Michigan. Now local viewers are looking at the realization of not having its regional CBS channel available via cable. Every three-years the station classifies itself to Charter. It can categorized as a must carry station, or re-transmission consent status. The consent status means the two parties must reach a mutual agreement in regards to broadcasting and funds. WBKB has chosen the later and has informed Charter it must drop the channel from its packages as of Dec. 31 if an agreement isn't in place. "We got notification that they wanted to have the signal off the air on December 31," Charter Spokes Person Tim Ransberger said. "We are continuing to hope for a positive solution though."

Everybody knows the TV weatherman. Especially when he's been beamed into their homes nightly on 9&10 News since 1991. After a long tenure at the station, and before that at TV 7&4, Dave Barrons will give his final weather report at the end of this year.

"Everybody has an opinion about the weather." Barrons is comfortable in front of a camera or chatting with viewers. At Miami University, he served on a concert board, where he spoke in front of large groups. There, he earned a bachelor's in political science. He added two master's degrees -- one in political science from Purdue University and another in education at the University of North Carolina. Before his broadcast career, he worked as a school social worker in special education. Now, he plans to return to education, working with his wife, a dyslexia specialist...
