Cumulus tried and failed with CHR here; is it possible they'll just sit this one out? 107.3 is the fallback station at the moment so it's not like these people are left totally high and dry.
Anything's possible. I don't see both Cumulus sitting this one out and Clear Channel leaving CHR on a weaker signal, though. The fact that Cumulus has tried CHR at least twice in Mobile/Pensacola and found WABB to be its biggest obstacle would make me think they'd believe they could do really well now that that obstacle has been removed.
And contrary to my earlier belief it appears that Biloxi/Gulfport does have CHR in Monkey 107.1. Someone earlier on one of these threads said there was no top 40 in that area but looking at Monkey's website they seem pretty contemporary. Moreso than WABB in my opinion.
The Monkey originally referred to itself as "Party Music For Humans," but, yes, it's definitely CHR.
I'm most eager at this point to see if CC is going to pull a switcharoo with Rocket and Hit Music Now. That application for 100 kW has got my interest piqued.
Again, anything is possible, and I doubt there are any options completely off the table.
