yea, but UP! is down considerably! No Christmas bonus here. Am wondering if Rawlco had a heads up about this, reason being the All Christmas format.

Capital's looking strong and solid. Good on them!

a real switcheroo with Bounce and Virgin. looks like an all out battle ground here. I don't think ppms are too favourable to this demo. Example being when the change from bbm first came in, Bounce had good numbers, alot better than Sonic, then with ppms, it turned around. It also makes one wonder just how much HOT 107 would fit into the picture if they were playing the ppm game.

What is it that keeps CHED on top in this market?  It seems unshakeable.

Their audience tunes in daily while wearing their PPM, falls asleep in front of the radio, and wakes up 5 hours later.   :P

I find myself asking that question daily as I tune into their eight o-clock news, which starts at 8:03, thanks to a rambling sportscaster well past his prime that constantly goes overtime.

Once he's finished, they go to commercials.  TONS of commercials.

But what is the alternative?  

The CBC (which is what I really listen to) has NATIONAL news at the top of the hour!   I need local news and traffic while I am driving to work.  I don't care about what's happening in Pakistan.  Same at 5PM.

The kids at INEWS880 can't even read their own names without making mistakes and I don't want to listen to the fart jokes on the other stations.  

What does that leave us?   CHED.  And, by default, that's how they have listeners.    :'(

Too funny...and probably more than a little truth to that statement.  Unfortunately their audience keeps getting older and older.  Doug Rutherford seems reluctant to make some changes that are needed.  First and formost is Brian Hall.  Brian unfortunatley is long past his due date.  Rambles on about crap that has little to do with sports and in general is trying too hard to impress the guy running the board in front of him and could care less about his audience.  In an era where content is king, Brian falls short all to often.   Brian has had an incredible run in the business and should realize it is time to bow out.  Dan Tenser is the obvious successor and for his short time in the business is just fantastic. It's too bad that TEAM 1260's numbers weren't a little better.  They have some excellent shows.  Their morning show is highly entertaining.  Jason Gregor is fun to listen too.  And I might add that I think Bob Stauffer sounded better on the TEAM than he does on CHED.  CHED aside, congrats to Chad Martin, the former POWER 92 jock in the 90's for pulling Astrals VIRGIN out of the basement.  They still have a long way to go in the ratings, but at least they now have a heartbeat.  It's too bad that Lite FM is still wallowing in substandard numbers near the bottom.  Thats what happens when you have a management team that does not believe in their product.  Forgive me for sounding old, but the staff they have assembled is too young for this format.  The GM liked the old format and the PD is a fish out of water.  Throw in the fact they launched late and with DJ's that were not well known in this market and you had a recipe for for disaster.  Not even all Christmas music can save their bacon because we now have 3 stations in Edmonton playing all holiday favourites.  At one time EZ Rock ruled the Christmas airwaves in Edmonton.  Now almost everyone is on the band wagon and all 3 stations will lose.  Note to LITE FM.  Pull out your wallet, hire some better known DJ's that are active in the community and promote the hell out of them.
