Anybody care to speculate what could happen now? Perhaps J.P. snapping up Hammond. He already has Ed. With their experience, not to mention contacts in country music, the potential is their to do a great job with a country format on 100.3. Just my thought.
If JP takes 100.3 country, (which I thought he would do originally when Citadel bailed on his LMA), He could really put the financial hurting on Cumulus. Hammond may have to sit out for a little while because I do not know if he still has the Citadel / Cumulus "release" of non compete clauses that Citadel negotiated for it employees that were canned by Cumulus during the buy out. I do not have the figures but I will guess that Cumulus's country operation makes more money (profit) than the news talk operation. If 100.3 flips, I doublt that the news talk's increased billings will off set the billings lost when 107.7 would lose to 100.3.
