Thread: WMEX?

  1. #11
    2015, right around June 2, the exciting new lineup debuts with Ligiotti in mornings I believe, but a week later Joe L winds up filling in for McPhee just as news of her DUI arrest comes out.Later that month, Rush moves to 1430 and Kuhner starts at noon after saying noon was the most important time slot.(Not so much AMD or PMD) He adds they are going to syndicate his show.

    He's still only on RKO.
    Then around July 9, word comes that Ligotti is suddenly out.Eventually Renegade gets the slot.

    So Sandy does have her own gig while Howie has help from Steve Robinson and Grace Curley, 28 affiliates plus one hour daily on Newsmax, book tours etc
    WMEX still hangs in there while 1430 gets ratings that rival ESPN On 850 (but folks, your ads are airing during Rush and Hannity in Boston!) WMEX must not subscribe to the ratings but they're still hanging in there, with no sign of Brother Stair or Alex Jones.

    IIRC mcscreamer's book release party was yesterday....they've been promo'ing for weeks, Sandy had some kind of IIRC medical appointment last week, I think she was only out one day and for some reason they aired the show from the day after the election, they did the same thing this past Monday when she was out. WMEX producers lack the talent to pick more current "best of shows" - Dave (Sandy's producer) is usually pretty good at it but the last couple of times she's been out (few weeks back when it snowed no one at MEX showed up for work) the "best of" was the same show - day after election. Shortsleeve was live but holy smokes, someone needs to tell him to use a damn mic cover, it's creepy listening to him suck in air, ewwwwwwwwwwwww.

    96.9 FM talk had a setup where if Severin (3p) was out they'd just pick up Hannity live and then rerun Sean at 10p as they normally would.But yes if they had to do a rerun a more recent one would have been nice.

    Speaking of... Severino has been quiet as of late... guess he finally retired from radio? Anyone know what he's up to now?

    Hmmm, what's up with "Sandy" Shack??? She seems to be taking a day off every other week AND today they actually Dave Shagoury filling in for her rather than that replay from the day after the election.

    Post above mentioned medical appointment so she may be out for medical situation.

    Is Daly trying to sell them? Post on a facebook group had ad for an "powerhouse day and night" AM in Boston for sale for $1.25 mil, reduced for quick sale, "stick value at least 3 million". 3 Patterns... and didn't they only pay 175k if it indeed is MEX?

    Of course, any station on that high, high end of the dial can not call itself a "powerhouse".

    WMEX does not own it's tower, and that is one of the issues... the transmitter site rent is rumored to be a major expense, one that has cursed every owner in the last two decades. And at 50kw on 1510 they are as effective as a 5KW station on 590 IMHO... then we get to their patterns.....
