Having said that, they're crazy not to move WINS to 660, and if they do keep 1010, have it become WFAN-AM, the NYC flagship for the fledgling CBS Sports Network, while keeping 101.9 FM live and local like WFAN has been the last 25 years. We'll see if they're sharp enough to keep all the chess pieces deployed on the board to the best advantage.
Why move the chess pieces around when it's unnecessary? Keep it simple...as long as CBS Radio doesn't have to part with a frequency, keep the cash cows in place. Provide comfort for the listeners; very few like to change listening habits.
There's no need to move the City-based news station at 1010 to 660. 1010 serves that purpose well.
Keep 660 for the Sports Network plus game overflow - plus the stronger signal may come into play regarding Mets and/or Yankees rights negotiations (along with other sports properties: NFL, NBA, NHL).
1010 would be about as bad as 1050 was (is) for sports programming - remember Yankees games on 1010 from 1978-1980 and 1944-1957?
