    "X"

    Does anyone else see an issue with the Fan2 now using "The Sports X?" Doesn't that kind of infringe on 99X?

    Not if you know the relationship between Cumulus and Dickey Broadcasting.

    Anybody could use "X" unless it could be proven in court that there was a copyright or trademark issue.

    IMHO The 99X brand lost it's viability when it lost it's original market covering signal.

    99X, Fox97, 94Q etc. are gone and will never be on a market covering signal in Atlanta with their original formats. RIP.

    Power 99 came back as Power 96 with the same format! And Q100 isn't far off from 94Q.

    Hey I was curious - Is it possible that this organic and creative “alt” moniker both Entercom and Iheartradio is using has anything to do with Alt Nation name used for the Sirius XM Alternative station? I’m just curious. Iheartradio has a “Z” and a “Kiss” on XM.

    Friend has said he could see, long in the future, Sirius XM taking over some of the terrestrial signals providing similar playlists with commercials. Interesting thought but not so sure I see that.

    iHeart has the exclusive rights to Kiss except in markets where Kiss was already being used (if that Kiss station is still around).
