In fact, a Spanish language station is #4 in 6+ in the most recent... and the last 4 books.

    The four columns you list are not individual weeks, they are the last 4 books, February, March, April and May. Weeklies are given to subscribers, but they are not released to the public.
    Oh i might have misread it just I think plj should have beat out la mezcla in its last month at least I think youd agree with that at least.

    Interesting to see WBLS tie between Lite FM. I think it would also be interesting to see what WCBS-FM does, historically their highest shares have been during the summer.

    WBLS sounds really good right now, lite fm does its thing and I really enjoy the variety they have on their 80s weekends. It's funny, clearly there is a major hole for a breeze soft ac station in New York. 96.3 has horrible ratings and has never competed with WSKQ. Clearly they would be better off with switching to the Breeze format but they are stuck on programming based on language rather than putting on the best format possible. With the way the industry is today, you would think that these owners would go after as much money as possible to be made on each of their signals, but that is clearly not the case, agendas over revenue, not where I'd want to invest my money.

    If you're investing in Univision, you know what you're getting.

    There already is a "breeze" type format. Coincidentally, it's called "The Breeze", and can be found at 103.5 HD3!!
    Today is your lucky day! Your prayers are answered!!

    firstly, that's the BIGGEST surprise of the May books - next to 'PLJs number showing an uptick ("nostalgia factor"); secondly, with CBSFM at a 5.4 (WAY BEHIND 'BLS/Lite), my thought is that they need to do something kinda big to get the WOW factor back on their side (ummm....i got a couple of ideas on that one? )
    (the question with CBSFM is - what can they do? They're not gonna get rid of Shannon in the Morning - they gotta either do something with the schedule or do something that's gonna shock the heck out of everybody - bringing back the Doowopp Shop even once a week is one idea)

    Hey David/BigA = maybe you can explain the true success of CBS-FM in the proper demos vs. what we call discuss on the 12+? It brings up some interesting conversation on here. How much longer will the current weekday line-up be around? I know (Broadway) Bill is 67-68 and has talked of retiring. Joe Causi can't be far behind. Dan Taylor has had a few issues this year, but seems to have weathered quite well. Shannon may well be there a while. I would think Dave Stewart would stick around another decade, at least.

    I guess as long as they want. It's New York, where the people seem to love heritage. You see it in terms of the TV anchors too. When you think of who might replace Shannon, take a look at Elvis Duran at Z-100, and he's in his 50s. Imus hung around til his mid-70s. So nobody is pushing anybody out.

    Quite frankly, I think they have a stellar line-up. Shannon and gang certainly get the job done. Dan Taylor is a smart, sophisticated consistent, grounded dry-witted talent and pilot. Broadway Bill Lee is that younger, childish brother everybody loves. Bill says there will be a point where he will HAVE to retire for his health's sake, but NOT by choice. I think he is absolutely the greatest talent (maybe the best in my book in America) and truly down to earth and humbled after all these years. Causi is comfortable and dependable. I think it was great that Entercom brought Dave back. I did not intend to convey any pushing or changes coming other than each of these gentleman making that decision on their own, when they feel so compelled.
