    In the end there will be WINS FM 99.5 and WBAI would finally close down.

    CBS/Entercom will finally consolidate news programming on WCBS just like what happened to KFWB and KNX in Los Angeles.

    That's an interesting question. A few years ago, they were investigating monetizing their archives. One possible solution would be to take a mortgage out on some of their properties. I believe their HD subchannels are all still available for rent. Just a few quick thoughts.

    Do you think Pacifica would consider selling one of the other stations? Houston maybe? I can see where they would not want to sell NYC or DC but I don't really see where a market like Houston would be considered mission critical. Thoughts?

    Actually I think the Houston station is likely the best performing of the group.

    The consolidation happened in LA in part because there were not enough shares in the market for two newsers. In NYC, both stations are in the top 5 in billings.

    Both are in the top 10 billing radios stations in the entire USA, too.

    As I said earlier, they have lots of other options that don't involve selling any stations.

    If -- and that's a big IF -- Entercom ends up with 99.5 and wants to put one of the news stations on it, which one should it be? 99.5 has a pretty major signal. Typically, WINS does much better within NYC. WCBS (whose call letters will eventually have to change) does much better in the 'burbs. Which one goes on 99.5?

    Entercom has already hit the limit in the New York market. They could not legally add 99.5 to their group.

    Entercom will have 4 FM and 3 AMs, and can likely add another FM. In that market, the cap is 8 stations, and no more than 5 in either service.
