I can’t help but think that if TOSOTR got a decently strong metro signal it would outperform the other 2 the way 97.1 The River rules Atlanta rock radio with classic rock hits.
    I agree. I love listening to TOSOTR. I think because of its limited signal, most of metro Atlanta hasnít really gotten a chance to hear it. They would love to have this format playing on a much bigger signal, if they knew it existed. It plays nearly all of the 99X era music.

    WBIE/WKHX is indeed the longest running format on the dial--country since 1968 (50 years).

    The oldest callsign on the commercial FM side is, of course, WSB-FM (1948). Second place is WZGC (1972).

    The oldest moniker is V-103 (1977). It used to be 96 Rock (1974).

    Cumulus is keeping it alive just to keep some else from using the channel.
    That theory makes no sense.
