    From Radio Insight: iHeartMedia is nearing the end of clearing out its Aloha Stations Trust for divestitures necessitated from its 2007 privatization. iHeart is donating its two Dayton OH market FMs Country “B94.5” WYDB Englewood and Oldies “Big 106.5” WRZX Greenville to Delmarva Educational Association. The deal is structured with iHeartMedia donating the equipment associated with both station’s transmitters while Delmarva will pay iHeartMedia $200,000 to reimburse for costs incurred for the maintenance of the trust and divestiture of the stations. Delmarva will assume the obligations for the WYDB’s tower lease and enter into a sublease for WRZX. iHeartMedia will retain the WRZX call letters and has the right until closing to retain WYDB as well. The deal leaves 1230 WIRO Ironton OH as the last station in the Aloha Stations Trust. WIRO simulcasts “Fox Sports 1420” WZWB Huntington WV. more

    From Radio Insight: There are just so many temptations for a journalist when a song called “Levitating” rebounds at radio. “Levitating floats on?” “Levitating is magic?” “PDs say it’s now a hit/they’re a tad bit late/Dua Lipa and Da Baby/had to levitate?” “Levitating” peaked at No. 4 on Jan. 18 according to BDSradio and began losing spins in the week of February 8. If it was classified as a current, which is how many CHR stations are now playing it, it would be the No. 5 song in the country. (Ironically, the song it would push from No. 10 to 11 would be Dua Lipa’s “We’re Good.”) Stations have not done numbered playlists for years. When they did, a station might on a rare occasion “re-add” a song it had dropped, usually at a high chart number. Songs are rarely truly dropped now, and the lines between current, recurrent, and “off” are fungible. But if this were an old-style playlist, Dua Lipa’s “Levitating” would be a re-add at No. 4 or 5 (or higher) for those stations now playing it in power. In early February, the large-market stations powering “Levitating” were mostly those owned by Cumulus, Entercom (now Audacy), or smaller owners. The song’s biggest iHeart-owned large-market supporter was WXKS (Kiss 108) Boston. Now “Levitating” is in power in every top 10 market except one. Many of the stations powering “Levitating” were playing it somewhere between 60-75x in its peak week, although there are a few stations like KDWB Minneapolis (18x) or WFLC (Hits 97.3) Miami (54x) where it is a sharper reversal. At a station like KMVQ (Now 99.7) San Francisco that was “power then, power now” on “Levitating,” the song has received more than 3,200 spins over the last year. (Most other stations began playing it in late September/early October.) WWWQ (Q99.7) Atlanta and Kiss 108 are both around 2,900 spins, according to BDSradio. As recently as three weeks ago, I wrote that there was a chance of Song of Summer 2021 being an actual summer song, rather than a winter or spring holdover. There didn’t seem like an obvious choice among the current hits to become this year’s lingering “Sucker” or “Blinding Lights,” in part because the tenacity of “Blinding Lights” (as well as Dua Lipa’s previous hits “Don’t Start Now” and “Break My Heart”) meant that no uptempo winter monster had really emerged. That is no longer true.* By several accounts, the issue for those stations not powering “Levitating” in January/February was familiarity. Top 40 radio was at its most challenged at the time — a format of three-share stations impacted not just by COVID-era listening habits, but also by December’s disruption of listening by Christmas music on Adult Contemporary radio. It would have been hard for most songs to kick in. “Levitating” was also in the extensive shadows of “Don’t Start Now” and “Break My Heart” for some stations. Should stations have just powered “Levitating” anyway in January, regardless of what callout showed? I understand if that would have felt like grade inflation for a song just because it had tempo and was a great radio record. What happens in the world beyond callout is another issue. A medium-market station without callout trying to decide what to do in February could have followed the lead of Kiss 108 (100x that week) or Kiss-FM (WAKS) Cleveland (40x). What most choose to do is just follow the chart, where losing spins in the aggregate turns out to be more important than any individual story. I would thus avoid declaring that the system worked on “Levitating” and listeners embraced it only when they were ready. There might have been nothing Top 40 could do in its weakened state in January, but the ratings show that the format doesn’t work with 14 viable currents that take eight months to break either. “Levitating” will play all summer, and I’ll be happy to hear it because it didn’t reach saturation in January. But Top 40 still needs another 20 songs like it and needs to do the work to develop them. When Dua Lipa won the “Best Pop Album” Grammy, her “thank you” list included the Warner Records promotion team. “Don’t Start Now,” “Break My Heart,” and now “Levitating” have helped radio continue to prove its value in creating real hits that help drive streaming metrics, rather than just scrambling to catch up with them. It’s also evidence that the audience that likes “Astronaut in the Ocean” or “Rapstar” isn’t uninterested in an uptempo, major-chord hit record when one comes along. Lipa’s speech also acknowledged that she had once been afraid of not being taken seriously unless her music was sober before deciding “happiness is something we all deserve.” Interestingly, you can find support for tempo in the streaming world now, too. The top two songs on Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits playlist are “Levitating” and Doja Cat’s “Kiss Me More.” “Levitating” maintained a strong presence on Today’s Top Hits, even as radio backed off. In fact, sometimes the uptempo pop balance records that seem like mid-charters for major-market programmers endure longer on TTH. Miley Cyrus & Lipa’s “Prisoner” stayed there long after radio was done. Ava Max’s “My Head and My Heart” is there now. * Just as the notion of what constitutes a TikTok record has expanded to include almost everything over the last year, the traditional pattern of active and passive records is being disrupted as well. A CHR PD may regard Imagine Dragons’ “Follow You” as an Adult CHR record, but it’s on Today’s Top Hits as well. (So, for that matter, is Pink’s duet with her daughter, “Cover Me in Sunshine,” a No. 2 song in Australia that wasn’t worked to radio here.) I’ve written in the past that Top 40 radio has somehow reached a backwards place where programmers expect balance records to stream but active records to test. “Levitating” followed two massive hits, and came from a hip artist, meaning it initially hit the wall at No. 4. Other tempo songs start to struggle well before reaching the top 10. Marshmello & Halsey’s “Be Kind” peaked at No. 14. A year later, “Be Kind” is only on a few CHRs but one of them is WKTU New York, where it did well enough that even AC sister WLTW (Lite FM) tried the song for a few weeks, despite it never having been a CHR power at the time.* How songs develop has become complex, but in a way that should be helpful to a song like “Levitating” that can have a streaming or a callout story. It’s a good thing when uptempo songs that sound great on the radio can do that. Until we have more great records than we can play again, programmers should not be finicky because a song does not have both consumption and callout. Unlike “Blinding Lights,” I can say that I’m not tired of it yet, in part because it didn’t reach airplay saturation. more

    From Radio Insight: iHeartMedia Hot AC/AAA “Cities 97.1” KTCZ Minneapolis has announced the return of Brian Oake to the station as morning host. Oake previously spent sixteen years at KTCZ, hosting afternoons from 2001 to 2012 and then mornings until 2016. He then moved to Minnesota Public Radio AAA “89.3 The Current” KCMP until exiting in August 2019 following a Facebook rant after he and his daughter were kicked out of a concert. He hosted mornings at Alternative “Rev 105” from 1994-1997 and successor “Zone 105” from 1997 to 2001. With the return of Oake to the station, Paul Fletcher moves back to afternoons. Fletcher has filled in on mornings since the layoff of Hunter Quinn last fall. Also joining the KTCZ lineup will be “Mix 96.9” KMXP Phoenix morning host Matthew Blades. Blades, a native of Minneapolis suburb Coon Rapids, will remotely track nights. He's back* Please welcome Brian Oake home to Cities 97.1!!

    From Radio Insight: Salem Media Conservative Talkers “870 The Answer” KRLA Glendale/Los Angeles and “590 The Answer” KTIE San Bernardino have announced the addition of Grant Stinchfield as morning co-host. Stinchfield will join Jennifer Horn for “The Morning Answer” starting Tuesday, May 18. Stinchfield will continue to anchor for Newsmax TV in addition to his new role for Salem. He previously hosted evenings at Cumulus Media’s 570 KLIF Dallas, was an investigative reporter for NBC owned television stations in Dallas and Hartford, and a host for NRA TV. Stinchfield fills the co-host slot that had been held by Brian Whitman until last December. Salem Media Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: SALM) announced today that after an extensive and exhilarating months-long search for a new co-host to team with Jennifer Horn on The Morning Answer for Talkers AM 870 in Los Angeles and AM 590 in Riverside and San Bernardino, broadcast veteran Grant Stinchfield joins The Morning Answer on Tuesday, May 18th. Grant Stinchfield will continue to host his daily television program Stinchfield on Newsmax. The Morning Answer with Jennifer Horn and Grant Stinchfield is heard weekday mornings 6-9am on KRLA-AM and KTIE-AM. “Good things come to those that wait,” according to Chuck Tyler, Director of Programming for KRLA and KTIE. “We put Jennifer Horn through the ringer, as we tried out numerous co-hosts for this plumb assignment, having a number of world-class talk-radio candidates. It took us five months. The good news is Jennifer survived, and we found an amazing new partner for her!” VP/General Manager Terry Fahy remarked, “Grant Stinchfield is an ideal fit for The Morning Answer here in Southern California. The chemistry is already spectacular. We look forward to covering the news, commenting on the news…and making news from our home base in Los Angeles.” ?“Grant is a true gem. He is smart, funny and knows his stuff. His chemistry with Jennifer makes the morning show sizzle. We are delighted to add him to the team,” added Senior Vice President Phil Boyce. According to The Morning Answer Co-Host Jennifer Horn, “The Morning Answer has reached new ratings highs over the last few months and I cannot wait to grow the show with Grant. We clicked on day one and have great plans for making The Morning Answer, bigger, better and brighter than ever!” Grant added, “It is an honor to be chosen to be an important voice for millions of Californians who cherish liberty and freedom in a state that is quickly being controlled by big bureaucracy and government. I can’t think of a more important area of the country that needs common sense straight talk than Southern California. My goal is to simply strengthen the tireless fight AM 870 and AM 590 is already waging war against the enemies of freedom, capitalism and democracy.” more
