More changes are in the works for ON PIT ROW--the radio show, which may necessitate changing that local only angle.
It was just announced this week that our long time home radio station, and flagship, WCWA-1230 in Toledo, OH will become the flagship station for the Toledo Mud Hens AAA baseball team. With most of their games starting at 6:30 or 7:00 pm; when you figure in their pre-game show, it pretty much ruins our 5-7 pm live broadcast time. We'll see what WCWA has to say during a meeting with us on Monday, November 5. The other sports station in town is committed to the Detroit Tigers and a third quasi-sports/news station is set to air Cleveland Indians games.
ON PIT ROW may be looking to break out of the live on-air constraints of local radio. We will be looking at a bunch of alternatives before the baseball season starts in April. Including a new non-sports flagship; possibly a local country station that is part of the MRN and PRN networks. Anyone from WCKY-FM looking at this? There is also the live netcast streaming alternative, which we will look into and give over the air stations a chance to play the show whenever they want.
There have been plenty of changes in our show over the past few months and there are many more to come as we look to expand and grow Bench Racing Productions, which itself is a new venture for us. A couple of months ago we changed from a three person show to just Charlie and me. So far reviews have been favorable.
Everyone always says the thing about a door closing and another opening. We'll see if they are correct. One thing is for sure Charlie and I have put too much time and energy into this deal for us not to keep going--no matter what.
Stay tuned for updated news and hopefully an exciting announcement about a new, additional racing show from us coming soon.
PRN, MRN, Sirius--we'd be glad to sit down and talk about adding ON PIT ROW to your lineups.
