I’m thrilled to have him start his mornings at the mic next to mine.” Lenz is a Denver native who joins KOA NewsRadio from KCBS in San Francisco, where he spent the past seven years as a news anchor.

He is a graduate of Colorado State University. “It’s a true professional and personal thrill to return to my hometown of Denver and be afforded the opportunity to work for KOA NewsRadio, a station I grew up revering,” said Lenz. “I cannot be more humbled, excited and honored to work with the talented and committed pros at iHeartMedia Denver-especially side-by-side with April Zesbaugh and the entire team at KOA NewsRadio.

When listening to ‘The Point,’ that’s exactly what you a get. ‘The Point’ is a maximum-music, less talk station!” WTZM joins a Carroll cluster that includes Classic Hits 103.3 WQLB Tawas City (simulcast on 94.9 WKJZ Hillman), Country 104.7 WKJC Tawas City and Talk 1480 WIOS Tawas City.

    From Talkers: By Mike Kinosian Managing Editor TALKERS LOS ANGELES — Our four-part series of November 2017 ratings overviews continues with an in-depth examination of adult hits. Previously posted were similar ratings summaries for news/talk operations (12/8) and NBA flagships (yesterday, 12/11). This analysis of adult hits stations is comprised of PPM-market facilities that rank in the top 20 (6+) in the November 2017 ratings sweep, which covered October 12 through November 8. Nielsen Audio only releases audience estimates for facilities that subscribe to its services. For that reason, ratings stats and information in the following charts are limited to stations that pay Nielsen Audio for its data. Bottom-line: While there may not be a great many PPM-market adult hits stations, the vast majority in our November 2017 sample did quite well. In fact, the adult hits format claims the strongest 6+-share (5.43) and best average 6+-rank (#6.47), easily outdistancing news/talk (3.80/#11.02) and the NBA flagships (2.63/#17.30) in those areas. Next up: A November 2017 overview of mainstream CHR stations; email managing editor Mike Kinosian at*Kinosian@TALKERS.com. More...

    From Talkers: Wisconsin Talk Host Admits to Sexual Misconduct.* What was so unusual about WHBY, Appleton talk host Josh Dukelow’s admission was that there was no accusation – Dukelow simply spoke on air about an incident in his past that made him realize he had sexually assaulted and harassed women, that regrets his actions and hopes more men will come forward during this national conversation about sexual misconduct by men.* The Appleton Post-Crescent reports that he made the admission on Friday’s show and it caused quite a social media stir in the region over the weekend.* Woodward Communications has not fired Dukelow and, although he was off the air Monday, he’s expected back today.* The paper reports Woodward general manager Kelly Radandt released the following statement about Dukelow: “Following his comments Friday, we immediately began gathering information and have had several conversations with Josh.* As a company, we take sexual harassment very seriously and are diligent with incorporating employee training and policies. *We have never received any sexual harassment allegations against Josh. *At this time, given the details he has provided — both to us and now publicly — there will be no changes to his current employment with our station.” Guam Radio Broadcaster Ray Gibson of Choice Broadcasting’s ThePOINT is this Week’s Guest on Harrison Podcast.* Guam, a small tropical island in the Western Pacific, is the farthest outpost from the US mainland of all American territories.* Aside from its active tourism industry, Guam is home to a major US military presence and has long played a very important role in American geopolitical interests.* It is the American “tip of the spear” in terms of present-day heightened tensions between the US and North Korea.* In spite of its remote location, Guam has always been an active market for American-style popular media – especially radio – with a colorful history of outstanding deejays and popular music formats ranging from old-style, top 40 to CHR and adult contemporary.* Talk radio in Guam has mostly focused on local civic and lifestyle issues – until now. *In recent weeks,*Choice Broadcasting*has soft launched a new format called “ThePOINT” on KUSG 1350 AM and 93.3 FM that emulates the traditional American conservative news/talk radio featuring a local show in the morning and syndicated national stars throughout the day.* Such notables as*Rush Limbaugh,*Sean Hannity,*Jim Bohannon,*John Gibson*and others have begun airing in this exotic land of Asian, Spanish and America culture located on the other side of the International Date Line.* The morning show that launches in January will be hosted by Choice Broadcasting managing partner and veteran Guam radio personality*Ray Gibson*who has been spearheading this initiative.* Gibson, a Guam native and second-generation radio personality (the son of*Bill Gibson), is this week’s guest on the award-winning*PodcastOne*series, “Up Close and Far Out with*Michael Harrison.”* Don’t miss this fascinating and informative almost-8,000-mile telephone conversation! *To listen to the podcast in its entirety, please click*here or click on the “Up Close and Far Out” player box located in the right-hand column on every page of Talkers.com. WPGG, Atlantic City’s Harry Hurley Takes Listeners on Tour of FOX News Channel.* Yesterday’s trip into New York City for WPGG, Atlantic City morning star Harry Hurley and his group of local listeners turned out to be even more eventful than they thought it would be.* Hurley tells TALKERS magazine that his group arrived four blocks away from the terrorist pipe bombing at exactly the time the explosion rang out.* As for the tour, Hurley (left) says, “Brian Kilmeade (right), Ainsley Earhardt, Steve Doocy, and Todd Starnes couldn’t have been nicer or more accommodating, especially considering the circumstances.* Giving listeners the opportunity to see how the national news is gathered and reported from the inside-out versus the outside-in is extraordinary.” NYC Pipe Bomb Attack, Roy Moore Candidacy, GOP Tax Reform Plan, Sexual Impropriety Cases, California Wildfires, Bitcoin Activity, Mueller’s Trump-Russia Investigation, Sanders vs Media, Sunday’s NFL Action and Attendance, and NBA Action Among Top News/Talk Stories Yesterday (12/11). *Monday morning’s pipe bomb terrorist attack in New York; today’s special election in Alabama pitting embattled Republican Roy Moore against Democrat Doug Jones; the Republican-authored tax reform bill; the continuing allegations of sexual impropriety, including The New Yorker’s firing of journalist Ryan Lizza, and the NFL Network’s suspension of Marshall Faulk, Ike Taylor, and Heath Evans; the devastating wildfires in Southern California; the surging value of bitcoin; the Robert Mueller-led investigation into possible connections between Trump campaign operatives and Russian agents; yesterday’s verbal sparring between White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the press; Sunday’s NFL action and analysis of attendance figures; and NBA action were some of the most-talked-about stories on news/talk radio yesterday, according to ongoing research from TALKERS magazine. TALKERS and Hillsdale College Co-Present Major Talk Radio Discussion/Debate on “Media and Journalism in the Age of Trump.” TALKERS joined forces with Hillsdale College of Hillsdale, Michigan this past Tuesday (12/5) to present a conversation on the topic, “Media and Journalism in the Age of Trump.” The panel of seven diverse talk media hosts included (in alphabetical order): Scot Bertram, Hillsdale College Radio/WRFH; John Fredericks, John Fredericks Radio Network; Dom Giordano, WPHT, Philadelphia; Hugh Hewitt, Salem Radio Network; Joe Madison, SiriusXM Satellite Radio; Janet Parshall, Moody Radio Network; and Bill Press, TYT Radio Network. The panel was moderated by TALKERS founder Michael Harrison. The lively discussion covered a variety of issues ranging from the meaning and impact of “fake news” to the state of the First Amendment in 2017 exploring ethics in journalism, the impact of digital technology on the news, race relations in America, and the controversial demeanor of President Trump along the way. The event took place at Hillsdale College’s distinguished Washington, DC extension, the Alan P. Kirby Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship. Reflecting on the event, Michael Harrison comments, “I knew it would be challenging keeping a discussion among such an opinionated, articulate group of talkers from going off the tracks considering the controversial and volatile nature of the topics at hand. However, I was delighted at the tremendous good spirit and collegiality displayed by all the participants. It was a productive and informative session. My thanks to all involved including our partners at Hillsdale.” To view the forum in its entirety, please click here. More...
