I listen to both.. it's very good and a very strong competitor for local radio. I probably wouldn't listen to it if it wasn't free at this point tho it's like cable with too much on. I still have it because I bought the "lifetime" contract back around 2006 or so for the $499 deal. It's free for life now and you can transfer it to a limited number of new radios.

I may or may not be hearing Bill Keeler on one of the open slots!!! Muhahahahaha!

What's up with people calling free radio terrestrial? I understand free radio has been out there for a very long time but they make it sound like it's not being listened to anymore. Stern left free radio because he was paid an enormous amount of money and he could say what he wanted. Tons of people are still listening to "terrestrial" radio. I guarantee almost everyone on here listens to the radio at some point everyday. If you don't, you're probably in the minority.

I listen to both if not listening to work radios. I doubt most people switch as often so it's either or.

No way dude. The main competetion for radio is iPod/mp3 player. Satellite is such a minor blip on the radar. The unwashed masses still listen to free radio, like it or not.

Bellino will stay on morning news with Bill on the talk host duties. Rondinelli stays as News Dir on air later in the day.

I would have already blabbed it but some lunk wanted to bust balls so you can wait.
Heres how its going to go down.
On a certain day this week or next a meeting will be held at a particular media company. At that meeting employees will learn the details which may or may not pertain to "X"! Keller? After that they MAY make an announcement or promotions will begin.
Refer to my orig list. It's in there.
To prove later, here is the very info you seek.

After any "news" is released (Or not right?)I'll drop the two word key so you can verify. Or if your handy with polyalphabetic substitutions using Vigenere.. have at it! It's all right there above.
Figure out the two word key and it's yours, here's a cypher engine: http://infoencrypt.com/
It's also right here:
1- This regards Bill Keeler?
2- This regards another known local?
3- WOUR is Replacing the tanking G&D show with "?"
4- "X" cuts a deal with MentalMindy because Gomez & Dave ratings are so bad?(Last part's true)
5- Keeler goes to WIBX?
6- "X" cuts deal with MentalMindy to take over 1410.. assuming anyone really believes you could actually hear that shit from Utica without aid of a very loud bullhorn?
7- A&E picks up a local pilot show offering for worldwide broadcast making "X" easily the most well known local to ever make it out of Utica area?
8- Steve "Fuck the Children.. I need to kiss Fremantle's ass for points!" Merren has a cardiac arrest by the time he reads this far?
9- Y Sirius orders 26 weeks of "The Keeler Show" as a test shot?
10- Bill Keeler is going on Mark's show?
11- "X" cuts deal with loansharks to buy station WRUN 1150?
12- None of the above.. even better?
Y or N: Grant screams "Release the flying monkeys!" to get to the bottom of this?
Really I would've blabbed it but someone wanted to bust balls! Now you can wait for any "official" release. Maybe another week or two.
I'LL TAKE #5 PLEASE!
Just wondering

Hey Ian,

Where is that two word key that you promised?

Thanks.

"MINORSECRET".

The "major secret" is set for early March. It's in the stars methinks.

So where's the BIG announcement?

A guy who hasn't been on the radio in 2 years, failed at Internet radio (which, in itself, is hard to do), hasn't been much of anything in years, had to pay to be on the radio, and now is on (yawn) an AM station with a scaled-down version of his old ways?

Start a thread when you have some REAL news.

How about "don't read" if you can't control your axe grinding instead moron? For "nothing newsworthy" you sure seem to run your mouth an awful lot. Do you always make an ass out of yourself with contradictions or do you have some other mental sclerosis problem you use for laughs?

Sorry, Ian, I can't disagree with the previous poster. While I appeciate your tip on Keeler and your opinion, how long has it been since he had a successful run? I no longer find the "next big thing" that Keeler does to be newsworthy, any more than Hank Brown's next move. Hank may be a legend in his own mind but he has not been much of a success in radio for a long, long time. I enjoy news/talk/info., but how will a softer version of his old shows appeal to the multitudes, especially on AM?

Looks like Heather doesn't think it's newsworthy, either.
