Drew and Mike Update On 105.1

Wow, in the couple of hours since i last posted on Drew and Mike to 105.1, I’ve been inundated with information.

I have it on solid sources that Drew and Mike to 105.1 is NOT happening. Drew to 105.1 is happening.

My sources confirm that Mike’s absence from the “DrewCast” is intentional and the duo may not work together again.

So, rejoice Drew fans, there is something happening with ESPN and Drew in Detroit.  It may take a while to complete this deal, but it is happening.

It’s going to be a rough road for Sports on 105.1, but it is a doable proposition with Drew Lane on board.

And….why does Drew play “Abracadabra” by Steve Miller to start his podcast?  Is he hinting at turning up on a station known as “Magic?”  Help me out conspiracy theorists?

 

 



Local Web Site Says 105.1 Is Going Sports With Drew and Mike

I have no inside knowledge of this deal, but local Detroit Web Site “Detroit Sports Rag” says on its twitter account it has a source who claims 105.1 FM in Detroit is flipping to sports with Drew and Mike in Afternoon drive.

A couple of things….

  • Detroit Sports Rag usually is right with good sources.
  • I am considered a “mortal enemy and a racist” so I don’t follow Detroit Sports Rag; I was relying on re-tweets to see what they were reporting.

According to Detroit Sports Rag….

Greater Media is in the process of obtaining the ESPN brand from 1090 a.m., which makes complete sense as that is exactly what we did in Philadelphia at 950/95.7 in 2008.  I was already gone, but that was the plan we put in place.

Greater Media knows they need a “huge” name in PM Drive to make it work and Drew and Mike would provide that, with Mike and Mike in AM Drive.  They would also likely put a live midday show on as well as a presence at night.

Detroit Sports Rag may be onto something, but as I said, I have no sources, just my thoughts and opinions as a former Detroit Programmer who actually ran a Greater Media sports outlet in Philadelphia.  This could get interesting as Drew and Mike appear to have a solid relationship with Greater Media.  I can’t imaging them being as restrained in their podcast if this was a bad parting.

Looks like Greater Media is going to try to lock down AM Drive with men in Detroit with WCSX, WRIF and 105.1.

According to loyal Drew and Mike listener, as soon as I tweeted how loyal Drew and Mike listeners were, I got a follow from 105.1

Hmmm, why is 105.1 following Drew and Mike loyalists?



(AUDIO) Drew Lane And His Producers Release A Podcast!

Drew Lane of the Drew and Mike Show released a podcast today with his former Producers at WRIF.  Mike Clark wasn’t on the podcast as they claimed it was impromptu, Drew said Clark will appear on future shows.

I’m guessing they by doing the podcast they are expecting to be off the air for a bit, likely for the next six months due to a no-compete.

LOL, Drew slaps me for writing about potential gigs for them at the 11:50 mark. Ha.  I am flattered, but I haven’t claimed ANY inside information….just yappin’ radio.

Check it out here, it’s good stuff.
