Could this then be the beginning of a transition to the 'IQ' brand for the Merlin stations?
We will have WWIQ Camden/Philly, and already have WIQI Chicago. If 106.9 pulls some respectable numbers might we see FM News 101.1 become IQ101.1 and FM News 101.9 become IQ101.9?
There is nothing new about "IQ". The Alabama Educational Television Commission, that state's public broadcaster, has had call letters ending in "IQ" for decades, i.e., WBIQ, Birmingham; WDIQ, Dozier; WFIQ, Florence, etc...although I have problems using "Alabama" and "Educational" in the same sentence. WIQI in Chicago could just be a way of suggesting "101", since WIOI is probably not available.
