This city has stations too female oriented. NOTHING is for the males. It's not right at all. 101.9 was perfect because it was for men & women. What can I go back to listening? Oh wait I can't receive a signal from any rock station because NYC radio market sucks!
I actually agree with everything you are saying. I thought it was great that alternative rock was back on New York radio, and I am likewise displeased by this news today.
The reason I didn't recall that CBS had killed K-Rock
on WXRK was because the station was an underperformer. Howard Stern carried that station during its first rock incarnation. The ratings fell off a cliff after his show concluded. CBS brought rock back, but it wasn't executed well, so the ratings at WXRK once again were poor, thus making the decision to kill it a second time an easy one for CBS Radio. Not to mention CBS saw an opportunity to challenge Clear Channel's WHTZ which faced no serious competition during most of its existence. 92.3 Now
has been a good idea, but it, likewise, has not been executed properly, so in the fight with Z, it's doing a lot of floor kissing.
