    Look what has happened to a long time heritage radio station WLS AM!! And everyone coments on WLS-FM. They are holding their own, even with the change in music. I wonder if the AM is feeling the effects of no Don Wade and Roma!!

    WLS-AM used to be one of the highest rated stations in Chicago! Then Cumulus took over.

    Cumulus is amazing. They seem to have a special talent to take successful stations and ruin them.

    Irrespective of one's opinion of Cumulus and the cloud people, the damage to WLS (AM) was done by Farid, Citadel and Associates. In fact, that crew pretty much did in some of the other legendary AM stations from the already long-in-the-tooth ABC portfolio, the most notorious being KGO and KABC.

    Wow, Channel 7 and 94.7 are about the only viable things left at 190 North State!

    Please someone send WLS-AM 890 and WIQI 101.1 FM a life jacket. They're drowning and sinking like the Titantic.
    I grew up listening to WLS and would have gone crazy without them in the 70's and 80's. Of course they played music then, but I don't want them to go down the drain. Listened to Q-101 a lot in the 80's and early 90's 'til I moved to Nashville (now in NJ) ..... but who cares about me ...just save the stations! Get new management or change formats. They need to stop acting like rim-shots (and maybe some even have higher ratings) ...remember, guys, you're in the 3rd largest city in the country. Get your ____ together!

    ^ Well, Merlin just sold their station in Philly and they sold off in NY last October. Maybe they're not doing anything with 101.1 because they're holding it until they can sell out of Chicago. Otherwise, they need to bump 87.7 up to the better 101.1 signal.

    The last time WLS-AM had ratings like that was twenty-five years ago when the decision was made to change from music to talk.
