    WNEW, based on the last 3 days, has a much smaller playlist than WLTW... WLTW is about 450 songs that get weekly play, and WNEW is around 275 (but there may be a few more as I just have 3 day's data for WNEW vs 7 for WLTW).

    WLTW plays significant 80's gold. WNEW has nearly nothing earlier than 1997/98. I looked at the logs for the last 72 hours, and they play about 2 currents (this year or very late last year) on WNEW, while WLTW has very little 2018 music at all, and the rotations on the "semi-currents" are much slower.

    WNEW is indeed doing a lot more spins each day, due to less talk and fewer commercials. In each of the three days, there have been around 70 more spins on WNEW, or about 3 more songs an hour than WLTW.

    And as I said in an earlier post, I think this is an effective approach. The AC format is a very broad canvas, and it can be subdivided into many sub genres. I think a currents-based AC is a way to chop off some of WLTW's audience. But it also touches on WPLJ and even WKTU. Still I wonder why they ran a promo saying they play more songs when in fact they don't.

    They are talking about play count, not library count. Average of 3 songs/spins an hour more than WLTW.

    I heard them using a recorded imaging about other stations running long sets of music and then "20 minutes of commercials." Then the female voice went on to say that they won't do that. The commercial breaks will be (I'm paraphrasing here) "no longer than a wait at the tunnel." (I wish I had the exact words.) LOL I've waited at the tunnel a hell of a lot longer than 20 minutes at times.

    Keepin' it local, though!

    I guess the three extra songs an hour replace the commercials.

    Every market is different. In New York adult females either want to hear the current hits and go for 100.3/103.5, or they want variety and go for 106.7. It just never works to try to put something on between these. Now in LA KBIG has certainly found a way to make the hot ac format work. They own the AC competition and the heritage chr, so you have to factor in the fact that they can keep the ac a little older and the chr more rhythmic to widen the lane for the hot ac but there is more to it then that. Every market is different...I'm amazed that its the same company that gets it so right in the Apple but 80 miles south-west.....(I'll keep this positive).

    102.7 is a better radio station than they were a week ago. "Fresh" is such a horrible radio name, which is funny because the positioner word "refreshing" is awesome for ACs. We all know why.... Beyond that, it seems to be more gold based, a good thing, and they are tighter on the currents. Good for 102.7 and 92.3 to let Alt have that Foster the People song all to their own.
