If they do, then 100.7 WHUD (a 50,000-watt FM station based out of Fishkill, NY) might have to prepare for competition anytime soon if this happens
    Why would they move the signal BACK to where it was? And BACK to WFAS-FM? They "improved" the signal into NYC proper, even though they barely get ratings. The stick is much more valuable where it is.

    Also the studio is in Penn Plaza, shared with WABC and the Cumulus corporate offices.

    There is no advertising market for a very partial coverage of NYC and the boroughs. There is a market at the local level for a Westchester station, although not what there might have been several decades ago.

    Would Cumulus move PLJ to 103.9?

    Why? Given the coverage, it would likely be a no-show in the book with that format on a suburban Class A signal.

    I agree, but perhaps some of the talent might appear on other stations. They have Jayde doing VT for some other stations already. Maybe a few others will get work that way.

    Here's a thought....since EMF ALREADY HAS an NYC affiliate (WKLV, on 96.7 FM), might it be possible that PLJ moves over there in a frequency swap? As previously indicated, Cumulus will still own the intellectual property of WPLJ after the change-over.

    If there was a frequency swap, wouldn't it have been announced as part of the deal? The way the WNSH swap was?

    No, EMF is keeping both stations.

    WKLV does not have a competitive signal in the NYC metro. Never going to happen.

    And EMF has other formats they can put on the second, inferior, signal.
