While the out-and-out catastrophes seem to have abated for the time being, the station still sounds awful (I also have a budding STD on that topic that needs a little more time on the vine) and there are still a lot of errors. After a brief post-Jake-suspension period of silence, the on-air grumbling has returned.
Commenters have noticed that Cumulus is looking for a new Chief Engineer for DFW. I don't know enough about the hierarchy to know who this person would replace, or if it is a new position, or if it is for all the DFW Cumulus stations or fewer than all. I was under the impression that the host-reviled Brett Blankenship was not a DFW guy but a little further upstairs at Cumulus. On LinkedIn his title is "Market Engineering Manager, Tulsa, Oklahoma Area," but I dunno, maybe he's been posted here to supervise the bungled Victory rollout. But I'm guessing he is not being replaced. Anyone with a better idea, please weigh in.
Nothing to leave you with here except to get your impressions of station performance since the major meltdowns of a few weeks ago.

Not sure when I'll be returning, so I'll have to rely on you guys to switch gears in the comments if something comes up. Will try to keep an eye on comments, but maybe not. Carry on, and hope to see you down the road.
[One last note on the last thread: Some commenters have recommended that I start screening comments. It's not a bad idea and I'm thinking about it. I don't do it for two reasons. The less-important reason is that I don't have time. The more-important reason is that it has come to pass that when something breaks ("literally" and figuratively) at the channel, this site gets swarmed and commenters have the news way before I do. So (1) I am hoping the site can continue to be a source for breaking Ticket news, and (2) I don't want Confessors to be discouraged by having to wait until 9 p.m. to see their and their co-Confessors' comments. Once-a-day review would also eliminate much of the entertaining and informative give-and-take that commenters provide by being able to respond to one another in real time. For now, we'll risk the occasional inappropriate comment.]
Thank you for continuing to shop at My Ticket Confession.
