Compare to 5's in 2002 and mid to high 4's in 2003. It was on a fairly dramatic slide, with the under-55 demos pretty much disappearing.

    The station had commercials. They were likely part of a cluster package or sold cheap. Having lots of spots is not a sign of prosperity; it may just mean that the station has to sell lots of cheap spots to survive.
    Thank you for saving and sharing that info!

    Does anyone think Breakthrough Radio is actually gonna do better than the Smooth Jazz format?

    No but it will cost less and could qualify as a tax deduction. Or perhaps they're paying for use of the frequency.

    Things aren't making sense to me yet. I mean, who's paying to put the station on 102.5? CHOP? That seems dubious. Also, can't iHeart claim a deduction only if they actually hand the station over? Is there a deduction just for letting CHOP run a station that iHeart retains ownership of?

    Pretty sure iHeart is applying for the 102.5 translator.

    As for deductions, iHeart might be able to write off the airtime it gives CHOP as a donation. I'm not familiar enough with business taxes to know for certain, but it seems plausible that free airtime for a non-profit could qualify.

    Wouldn't WJJZ on 102.5 interfere with Reading's WRFY(Y-102), which incidentally is also an iHeart station?

    I'm assuming that it will be outside of WRFY's protected contour... but even if it isn't... since iHeart also owns WRFY, they can simply not file any interference protest against their own translator.

    The pattern is strict Southeast away from WRFY, kinda like WURD at 96.1, which protects Cat Country, their signal can reach Lakehurst 50 miles away to the east, but a block behind them, the signal is non-existant. The only problem I can see is if WRFY is sold, if my memory serves me correctly they were always 20kw and were like a local in Philly. When IHeart acquired them they had to reduce power in half to 10kw to keep their signal out of the city, stopping IHeart from owning the airwaves, they still are receivable but much weaker. Now, if another company would buy them, I am sure it would be legal for them to power back up to 20kw...

    They should Lease/Donate 1480 to Amtrak. 30th Street Station is about the only place you can pick up the signal. lol
