Re: “Media Watch

Also worked with Allen in Las Vegas. I'm pretty sure it was the same company. I was startled when he did reporting when I was working at a station there considering I had worked with him here in Tucson for years.

The best thing KCUB could do would be to go back to Country Oldies.

Re: “Media Watch

After working at KIIM-FM for over 6 years I agree and disagree with this article. I found that if the station has "live" talent and plays new and re-current stuff that they do quite well. I always had lots of phone calls and requests when I was on the air, which proved that the listeners were there. Their medium age were right on target as far as I could tell with the direction KIIM-FM was taking, lots of younger callers, and contest winners. In my own opinion after being in radio as an on-air personality, I find that the downfall of terrestrial radio will be the automation, known in the business now as voice-tracking. Unfortunately just about every station in Tucson does that now, most 24/7 except for the most listened to stations such as KIIM-FM, KRQQ, etc. It's pretty obvious when the "book" comes out that that is exactly the trend in listening. The listeners will be there when there is live and local talent and interaction with the community. When the station is just a jukebox, then people, even older people such as myself will use the input plug in the car and listen to the Ipod, MP3 player or whatever.

Re: “97.1 Is a Country Station Now, If That's Your Thing

First mistake is NOT starting with local live talent. Clear Channel just thinks they'll make money, but again someone in San Antonio is an idiot.

Re: “Media Watch

If as I've read there was vandalism at the towers, could be copper thieves plain and simple. The copper was stripped at the KTKT towers on Jackrabbit Road. Sadly those AM directionals have a ton of copper for grabs.
Alan Michaels has a dream and a plan and a goal. I can't imagine an owner of any broadcast property that doesn't want it to work. Alan is a hard worker and a long way from being out of touch with the Tucson market. I say let's sit back and give him a chance to get things in place and see what happens! Good luck Alan!
