    WYAY continues to shock me. WSB seems to always capitalize on the news and WYAY always struggles. And now, when WSB has such a weak evening drivetime host WYAY decides to go even weaker.

    I'm kind of surprised that Cumulus hasn't put the Kimmer (back) in PM drive, unless they want a more commentary vs. comedy focused host when news consumers would be listening.

    In a way, Cumulus is doing what made WGST in the 90s--hire unknowns and try to grow them (like Sean Hannity).

    Like 'BEEP' and 'BUZZ' and 'GOBBLE-GOBBLE', by gosh we can't even say shhhhhaving cream!"

    Can they wait a couple of years for someone to pan out?

    Maybe they are waiting to see how the Braves pan out (hopefully will be a strong nighttime host!)

    Did 106.7 ever come up with a new "slogan"?

    What really surprises me is the WFSH and WVFJ showings. The Fish has been strong for some time and WVFJ showed up with a 2 share this time...I'm surprised there is that much Christian Radio listening in a city like Atlanta.
    I'm guessing panel changes have placed a lot of PPM monitors in the NE metro and south metro. WVFJ has always been strong in the soccer mom counties south and The Fish, the northern/northeastern counties.
    But if that's the case what has happened to country? Those numbers seem anemic...
    Thoughts?

    I was wondering what happened to country as well.

    Country is nationally going through a bit of a down cycle.

    What causes these down cycles? I have heard that before about other formats, country included, but it doesn't mesh with my "people are creatures of habit" theory. Most people I have known over the years habitually listen to "their" station(s) and do not switch stations except when something new, with a lot of social buzz, appears on the scene.
    Is my theory all wrong? I can't think of what has happened that is shiny enough to attract people to switch stations
