It’s in the premium section but what little is given out on the outside, makes one wonder what is going on and I couldn’t find it anywhere else: https://radioinsight.com/blog/headlines/netgnomes/105052/daily-domains-218-energy-relaunch-for-portland/February 22, 2016 at 10:23 am #18207Alfredo_TParticipant
I tried http://www.energy955.com, but that domain is parked by a company called “Rebel Media.” I wonder how the Radio Insight people happened upon their information.February 22, 2016 at 4:14 pm #18216Master of DisasterParticipant
When those articles were public on Radio Insight, it appeared as if Mr. Venta had some connection(s) somewhere on the pipeline, either on the radio side or with the registrars themselves. And, every so often, the tip was actually an account registered on something like Facebook or Twitter.
There seem to be quite a few organizations named “Rebel Media,” one of which is an Irish web design company and another of which is a sports content farm.
Reminds me, wasn’t “955thegame dot com” registered to an Alpha Media staffer before the Sports format that’s now on 750 and the 102.9 translator launched? Want to say it was mentioned on this forum first.
It might also be nothing; Network Solutions Whois says “energy955portland dot com” is available.February 22, 2016 at 11:29 pm #18229
It sounds like an interview with someone from Alpha but whatever it is, is buried in the premium section. The name “Energy” would seem to suggest more of a rhythmic lean, if not a full-on Rhythmic CHR.February 23, 2016 at 12:41 am #18232Dxer1969Participant
Let’s hope not. Why that direction? Makes no sense to me.February 23, 2016 at 2:35 am #18237
18-49 is fast replacing 25-54 as the money demo. Wild left a hole of sorts when they jettisoned their format to return to Jammin’, now Jam’n 107.5. Maybe KBFF has their eye on filling it.February 23, 2016 at 8:46 am #18238W7PATParticipant
Isn’t Jam’n 107.5 aimed at the 18-49 group (and younger) already?February 23, 2016 at 11:06 am #18243
Yes and so is KBFF but maybe they think targeting between Jam’n and Z100 is more advantageous than going straight up against the latter.February 23, 2016 at 1:52 pm #18246Andy BrownParticipant
18 – 49 is laughable. Three decades of people do not listen to the kind of slop these stations play. Since when does father and son like the same music? Time for you ratings worshippers to realize that this isn’t about REAL listeners, just the folks with meters.
The only exception to this rule is when father and son (or anyone thirty years in age difference from someone else) is when they are musicians. Whether classically trained or just musically involved in a group, band in school, taking lessons because mom, dad or siblings did. You see, those kind of people understand music on a different plane then Top 40 housewives and the lot.
Stations have rarely targeted realistic demos. The demos are part of the ratings scam being foisted on the major advertisers. I do enjoy when you guys try and make sense of the tomfoolery coming out of corporate programming these days but eventually you will figure it out, it isn’t at all applicable to real people that sometimes listen to the radio (the few that are left).
Seriously, with the top two group owners flirting with bankruptcy and Pandora also approaching that sad state, don’t you think it’s about time you guys admit that whatever corporate radio/streaming is doing today IS NOT WORKING?February 24, 2016 at 12:24 am #18259
I only said that 18-49 was in the process of replacing 25-54, as the “money demo”, just like TV did long ago. I didn’t mean that any particular station was going directly after the entire demo. In any case, it wouldn’t be fathers and sons, who share a common station but rather, mothers and daughters.
