I'm an old Cowtown resident, and I'm glad that they have different political perspectives as opposed to all conservatives all the time. However, I think that getting a .5 is at best a moral victory, and moral victories are for losers. Get that station into the top fifteen, and
then you have done something. The only really liberal areas I recall are Whitehall and downtown, the inner city. Is there an upwardly
mobile base in any other part of town?
Barth, you've been away a long time...Add Upper Arlington, Gahanna, Worthington, Westerville, Clintonville, Campus area, German Village.
I could go on.
As for the loser comment...I'm the one who writes the checks that get advertising on the air. If you are one of the radio people receiving the checks, then you have no right to look down on those who write them. Comments like yours make me glad you left Columbus.
Single cities don't matter - radio signals don't stop at city borders.
Sean: you're killing us. Your $500 a month may be the cat's pajamas over at 1580 (where I just heard their new liner: "1580 WVKO... right above the "O" in AC Delco), but it's no huge deal. Tiny nothing AM stations like this have to resort to the format of the month OR one that has a miniscule number of ardent followers like you who will pimp it at every turn. WTVN doesn't have to rely on message board posters to get people to know it exists. By the way, I've been trying to call WVKO's vaunted sales department for the past three weeks. Seems no one's ever over there. I guess my clients and I, with multi-million dollar annual budgets, will get locked out of all the excitement. But hey, as long as Bud's Flowers and More in Lancaster gets their buck a clucks ROS spots, that's what matters. Oh, that's right... you can't hear WVKO in Lancaster.
