I wouldn't be comforted not knowing anything. That's usually when rumors get started. Incorrect rumors, usually. Listening to the grapevine, noting down what's said, then comparing it to what really happens is a fascinating spectator sport.

Remember when there used to be crazy fun rumors on these boards... some of which came true? I miss those days.
I wonder if we're ever going to have an interesting station flip ever again. Radio has gotten so static all over the country.
On an unrelated note, would "Movin" or "Jack" take off on a full-market signal? The versions in Seattle are doing very well against the CHR and Hot AC and classic hits/rock. It seems like Simmons could have a better chance against its competitors with one or more full-market (107.5 is a full market, albeit weaker in the north) signals again.
Simmons was indeed making a run at the Blaze signal about a year ago when they found out about the milcreek bankruptcy and the bank seize of the Oasis signal. Simmons really does hurt because of not having full market signals. The Eagle is one example. They have not, nor can they gain on the Bull without a better signal. Jack and Movin are formats that fade fast and probably should have never been launched. Why not kill Jack, get a full market signal, and resurrect the Star format. I'll never understand why they launched Movin instead of doing that. It's a proven format that they had already perfected once, and they had the talent in the building to do it. X96 is keeping that group afloat.
