the bone on 107.5 will crush who? they didn't crush zzo, and by the way, they still have to come up with 22 million dollars no matter what they put on 107.5 not likely.
CHR on 107.5. could work. but CHR is a young audience who now has I-Pods and the internet. THat would never garner any 25-54 numbers which, like it or not, is still the demo advertisers want.
My thought process was to take what Y102 is doing, then do the opposite. I'm not too sure how a Hot AC/Adult CHR might fare (CHR without the rap or hard rock, perhaps with lots of oldies/recurrents - again, stuff Y102 wouldn't touch). I'm not too hip on Variety AC, besides the 98.5 translator for WLEV ain't exactly setting the world on fire.
Another idea I just got would be for an 80's-focused "Classic Hits, Generation II". This would be a la CBS-FM, WOGL, or WSOX - but heavy on the 80's (maybe a smattering of upbeat 70's). Add some echo to the audio chain and rehire some WRFY cast-offs from days gone by and that might be a winner.
Forget Country, I105 has a corner on that market.
