OK assuming that there are more than 45 stations in the DMA, Entercom will be able to have 8 stations, with no more than 5 on one band.
there is also a regulation that limits the percentage of total revenue in the market they can control, and that is 40% IIRC
On the AM side WBZ AM and WRKO stay, and WEEI AM may stay but only if the revenue limits are not close enough that tossing 850 will keep them from going over.
On the FM side I predict WEEI FM, WBZ FM ( the sports stations) WZLX, WBMX and WODS stay.
That means WKAF and WAAF get tossed.
How does WBZ AM survive as a news station where it is labor intensive and will they still be able to keep their association with WBZ TV?
With CBS bowing out will Entercom keep Total Traffic or will they proceed with the new traffic provider for WBZ AM?
How long before the back of house layoffs start? Lots of people got shown the door by Greater Media in the months leading up to the Beasley takeover, I predict the same thing will happen at the CBS properties.
What do you predict?
