Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Jan. 1, 2009




WADL-TV 38 to air second Detroit mayoral debate live on January 7

The second in a series of highly talked about debates between candidates to become Detroit's mayor is scheduled to take place Wednesday, January 7th 2009 at 8:00PM.

WADL TV 38 will air the event live, following through on a pledge to give all candidates who want the opportunity a forum to debate. The candidates scheduled for round two of one of Detroit's most talked about elections are D. Etta Wilcoxon, Coleman Young II, Stanley Christmas, and Rev. Nicholas Hood III. Sharon McPhail was also invited to this event, but has declined to participate.

The panel for the debate will include Nolan Finley, Editorial Editor for the Detroit News, Stephen Henderson, Editorial Editor for The Detroit Free Press, and Moderator Dayna Clark, News Anchor for WJR AM 760.

The Christmas fare on WNIC during December easily lifted the station to the top of the December 2008 official portable people meter radio ratings from Arbitron. The station easily outdistanced every other competitor in both total number of listeners and in ratings share.

Age 12+ ratings chart.



Crain's Detroit Business:

Detroit is one of the four latest radio markets to measure listenership by portable meters rather than the traditional diary method, according to Arbitron Inc. ... The audience ratings estimates, done monthly rather than four times a year under the previous handwritten method, are used to determine how many people are listening to a particular station in a market, and Arbitron-subscribing stations, advertisers and ad agencies use the results to determine commercial rates... Arbitron switches to portable meters for Detroit radio ratings (Wed, 12/31)
