  1. So how does it feel Rogers – bottom 2 spots. Can’t say I am surprised or feel bad for Rogers. I do however feel awful for the employees who still work there. Time to just close the doors.
    Rogers can’t fix what is wrong anymore, they must be a joke on the streets to the other radio stations. More power to them and congrats to them on good ratings!

  2. 14 years after it replaced a country format, The Zone 91.5 is finally showing real signs of life.
    Is it becoming more mainstream in its playlist? What’s the reason for the turnaround?
    It can’t be the Victoria Royals play by play broadcasts!!

  3. Congrats The Q. No surprise here! CFAX good too. You know what works, Rogers doesn’t have a clue. One format doesn’t work they change to another and another. Hard on the ones left in that office. Staff morale must be yet again at the lowest of low. Bye bye Ocean and KISS.

  4. Less people are listening – it’s very clear.

    Pads, and Sat Radio, smartphones, etc – are going to finish off some of these dead ducks.

    AM radio?

    Why would I buy an ad campaign on a station that plays 15 30’s in a row?

    No one knows what they are doing, and it shows.

    Sorry, for all the pain being absorbed by the employees.

  5. Wow–between this and the Forbes and Marshall post Rogers is taking a beating. Just like they did in these ratings. Wonder if that means a format change ? What they are doing now is failing. But the change from Jack to KISS isn’t going very well either. Maybe having AJ on board will help ?
