Unrelated to Chicago (yet) but NASH FM in New York isn't so far what it's been hyped up to be. Ratings are nothing special. Going down if anything in the 6+ and I'm not seeing them near the top of key demos.
Here in Chicago, very little has changed. Some ups, some downs.
V-103 owns the market with a mass appeal Urban AC format. You have your African-Americans, Hispanics and Whites who listen.
WBBM owns the market with news.
WKSC has made some changes for the better. They evened out the playlist to make it less rhythmic leaning. They added a positioner "Chicago's Hit Music Station" and got a new voice guy. The flow is smoother and it sounds better to listen to. Yes, little things like that CAN help the ratings.
Again, WTMX owns the demos as always. Eric & Kathy, and like WVAZ, mass appeal.
Also, huge gains for XRT.
