    #Branding

    • p0is0nedkoola on Twitter

      You used the word “branding” wrong.

  • http://raylosophy.com/ Ray

    Besides the tranny-prostitute case (Mister Cee) I doubt they’ll have anything “sensational” enough for a successful reality show.

    • Dwight Stewart

      i disagree, i’m a breakfast club fan but everyone loves the process of watching things grow and develop. We’ll definitely get attached to the different characters. That’s why Making the band was so successful, that’s why the Voice and American Idol is so successful, etc. Mister Cee’s BS is just a fucking is a side show.

      • http://raylosophy.com/ Ray

        I hope you’re right

  • Fresh360

    And it all falls down…

  • Fresh360

    Power 105 (Breakfast Club) got Ebro reactin, never react it never ends well…

    • p0is0nedkoola on Twitter

      That would suggest that HOT 97 started filming the second 105 announced their show, which didn’t happen.
      Second, HOT 97 is on VH1 a featured channel.
      105 is on Revlot, an upstart channel with very little buzz other than Diddy’s rah-rahing which will end just like his “vote or die” BS.

      Hopefully both stations burn as they are making hip hop and the culture SECOND to some DJ’s doing a bad Howard Stern impression.

      • Fresh360

        Ummmm I was being facetious and was actually talking about Ebro reactin to Power 105 upswing in terrestrial radio…The same way he added himself to Cyph & Rosenberg he in a defensive position a.k.a ‘reactin’.

        In the words of Hov he shoulda stayed in food & beverage.

  • Jinx

    Breakfast club airs on revolt the same day March 31st. Lets see who more in entertaining Power 105 vs Hot 97. I will be laughing at Flex alk the time can’t wait.

    • http://Blackprestige.blogspot.com/ Black Prestige

      i’m no hot 97 advocate but if they do air at the same time i’m sure hot 97’s gonna out do the breakfast club….(at least in early ratings)..simply based on Revolt Tv not being a nationwide channel yet…

      • Sean Power

        i would still say breakfast club people would fine away to stream online breakfast club is more entering

        • Dwight Stewart

          Youtube, online views aren’t quantifiable data, meaning no one truly knows the breakfast clubs impact if we keep bootlegging it and re-posting it on some random ass person YouTube channel. They get there ratings through actually views on revolt and other regulated media outlets that pick them up. Frankly, it doesn’t mean shit if us fans don’t listen when it actually airs.

      • Ricky Retardo

        people still watch TV? you know damn well the views are gonna be online based.

        • Dwight Stewart

          WRONG! The Breakfast Club doesn’t have an officially regulated online presence. iHeart streams through the internet but it isn’t internet, its satellite radio.

      • Dwight Stewart

        VH1 is on basic cable meaning every cable watchers home. You only get Revolt through your highest cable package in most cities far less people.

    Shits gonna be dope

  • Matt

    hip hop needs a new radio station that plays hip hop

    • Dwight Stewart

      we need it but we wouldn’t support it as a hip hop community. Black businesses wouldn’t advertise their product and services on it, etc. This isn’t the old days when you can set up shop in a basement, it costs millions.

      • Matt

        its not that hard , If you got the , Pitch , support and investors, and the ad’s and product placement all come into a Play, target the market, but its fucked up how people can manipulate a culture of listeners who like skills and ill word play . Rock and roll has many different categories, wtf Hip hop is not broken into different categories like Rock, Rock has ,deathmetal,hardcore,all kind of shit, Niggas need to separate the Reap Hip Hop for the Pop music . Niggas need to start making moves there’s a gold mine behind this real hip hop shit

        • Michael Ibbett

          Those sub genres of rock that you named don’t get radio play either lol deathmetal is not on terrestrial…..rap does have sub genre’s as well where the fuck you been..horrorcore, gangster rap, backpack, street/mixtape, commercial, old school….Shit look at the dozens of ways Pandora describes each artist. Your jumbled mess rant makes you sound dumb as fuck. “I was bootcamp clicking it hard” lmfao

          • Matt

            Hot-97 should change the name to Dirty south 97

          • Matt

            dumbass nigga right here, there are no sub genres of HipHop like that , Rock Sub genres has their own channels on cable , their own radios stations on fm you fucking slave ass nigga

    • THE_LT

      ARE YOU iMPLYiNG HOT 97 DOESN’T PLAY HiP HOP? CAUSE i WAS LiSTENiNG AROUND 2PM TODAY AND THEY PLAYED LOX AND THEN MACK WiLDS….SOUNDED PRETTY HiP HOPiSH TO ME

  • Forever King

    Hot 97 and Power 105 (The Breakfast Club) aren’t even the number one radio stations in NYC, Elvis Duran is. They aren’t even the number one urban radio stations, that would be the Steve Harvey morning show. They are about 6 or 7 in morning ratings, they have about 5 or 6 stations ahead of them. It is stations that play just music that gets more listens then these people. No hate just check the numbers, if they want ratings just fire all of these old heads like Ebro, Angie Martinez and Funk Flex and hire new blood. They also need to talk about issues that is relevant to culture and not reality TV shows and kissing artist asses

    • Brian B.Dotâ„¢ Miller

      Actually, I think Power is #2 behind Elvis.

      • Forever King

        TBC is number 15 in morning NYC radio check the numbers

        • Brian Ya BISH

          yeah shut up BRIAN ya BISHHH

    • Sean Power

      how many people on this website do you think listen Elvis Duran ?

      • Forever King

        I doubt many people but he is still number one in NYC mornings. Just because people on here don’t listen doesn’t mean he ain’t get ratings

        • Ken Rose

          Those ratings are even accurate. There is no accurate way to measure a radio audience. When Portable People Meter is the best you can do to measure your audience, your industry has a problem. Radio is dead.

    • Dashing28

      It aint all about ratings dude.And they might not be the most listened to, but they defintely have the biggest impact with their demographics.

      • Forever King

        A few hundred thousand fans listen to these guys every morning, if they were replaced it wouldn’t even matter

        • Dashing28

          Lol. Ok buddy. We should be seeing that Elvis Duran show any second now then, huh?

          CSI is the most watched drama on TV. Does that make it more significant culturally than Breaking Bad? Impact and ratings are not the same thing man.

          • Ken Rose

            They’re not paying these guys real money. None of them. Only guys getting paid in NY radio are Howard Stern, Opie & Anthony, Scott Shannon (5Mil a year since 1985). Elvis Duran is a slave. Who doesn’t get paid jack shit and he’s been on the z100 since forever. Don’t talk about fact with me little nigga.

          • Dashing28

            Yeah, I’m old. I remember when how much motherfuckers got paid and they’re ratings didn’t matter to the listeners.

            It was more like what were they actually doing? And do people fuck with it? I don’t know. I’m weird like that. I guess.

        • Ken Rose

          Radio doesn’t matter. What are you talking about. Who listens to radio shows in 2014? Who cares what ebro/rosenberg/envy/charlamagne has to say. Who said their stupid opinions mattered. Why would I listen to a bunch of nobodys.

    • Ken Rose

      Radio ratings are the least accurate ways to measure an audience. PPM is used to measure ratings. Before that they had surveys. In this case, numbers do lie. Radio is dead. Clear Channel/Bill Clinton killed it. Who fucking listens to radio in 2014. Hot/Power/Z100 are all irrelevant. You have no idea what you are talking about

  • Elev2n

    I hate EBRO with a passion. And this show looks awful it will probably be canceled by episode 2.

    • Dwight Stewart

      What time does your show air?

  • The Almighty

    I’m watching, I fucks with Hot 97

  • yaboy

    power 105 lost

  • THE_LT

    POWER 105 iS TRASH…THE WALMART OF RADiO….AND DJ ENVY iS BiTCH MADE

  • AMERIKAZMOSTWANTED

    Hot 97 is failing peoples, those who gravitate towards reality TV for any kind of publicity usually means your brand is in shambles. you can name a few.

    • THE_LT

      i HEAR WHAT YOU’RE SAYiNG….AND i AGREE THAT iS THE CASE WHEN iT COMES TO CELEBS TRYiNG TO GET SHiNE AND REViVE THEiR CAREER…BUT i THiNK THiS iS SOMETHiNG TOTALLY DiFFERENT…i FEEL THAT THEY HAVE THE CHANCE TO BE ON A MAJOR CABLE NETWORK BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY MEAN TO THE CULTURE AND THE FACT THAT THEY ARE KNOWN AROUND THE WORLD…NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE FALLiNG OFF…iF ANYTHiNG iT’S THE COMPLETE OPPOSiTE

      • AMERIKAZMOSTWANTED

        i understand what you are saying, of course any pub is good pub. But I really don’t think Hot 97 has the personality of us regulars to stay tuned week in week out. God the music they spin daily is trash, so why should we watch them spin trash? I think online episodes are alot more interesting rather than relying upon ratings…they will fail…its the way TV works. Not even power 105 is safe. Revolt isn’t NBC, ABC etc. anyway

        • THE_LT

          THATS NOT WHAT i AM SAYiNG AT ALL…WHAT i MEAN iS EVEN THOUGH CELEBS NEVER CATCH FAME FROM REALiTY AND ALWAYS GO THAT ROUTE WHEN THEY ARE FALLiNG OFF…THAT ASPECT OF YOUR STATEMENT i AGREE WiTH…FOR A RADiO STATiON TO GET SHiNE ON A MAJOR NETWORK iS A VERY UNCOMMON THiNG…SOMETHiNG THAT COULD ONLY BE PULLED OFF BY AN ENTiTY LiKE HOT 97…SO FOR THEM…ALSO…POWER 105 AND REVOLT ARE BASURA MY FRiEND…PRETTY SURE YOU CAN ONLY GET REVOLT iF YOU HAVE TiME WARNER CABLE…THAT ALONE iS WACK JUiCE

  • GreenBergs

    you know what they say when you turn to t.v you done..

  • GreenBergs

    hot 97 is the worst radio station ever, all they play is fucking beyonce and jayz, most annoying shit in the world..
