Welcome to Wednesday.
Chicago, Part 2: An inside source reveals a bit about Chicago 25-54 numbers. AAA WXRT up and healthy. Classic rock/hits WDRV flat and healthy. Classic/mainstream rock WLUP down and not-so-healthy.
I think it would be fair to say that Emmis has its challenges in the Windy City with not one, but two full class B FMs. Perhaps a contributing factor to WLUP's troubles is Steve Dahl; who successfully moved from afternoons at WCKG to mornings at WJMK (Jack FM). Radio-Info's Tom Taylor repored this morning that Steve debuted #3 M25-54. Wow!
Elsewhere: Congrats to WCSX/Detroit and OM/PD Doug Podell. 12+ numbers released yesterday show the classic rock station rising a full share. Sister WRIF holds steady.
Boston: WZLX up a bit. San Diego: KGB-FM up a few notches too!
Added: Dave Lange writes here about Comedians and Morning Shows. Good read with your morning coffee and Krispy Kreme.

The services will include a 5-minute video tribute to Big Ron will be webcast at www.wogl.com. The video was produced by "Shotgun" Tom Kelly and Art Voulo, Jr.
