Doc - I think the signal is adequate and there is certainly no need to cover the 5 boroughs. All the cume will be coming from the burbs. Country today is just bad pop and there is a huge appetite for bad pop. The NYC metro is no different. It's just a matter of selling it. As we all know, stations don't go away because of ratings; they go away because the group can't sell it.

The signal will be an issue. Unless they can move the transmitter from West Orange to Manhattan (preferably on the Empire State Building master or the equivalent), it will remain essentially a New Jersey station with a secondary signal in much of the market. Could be that short-spacing will prevent a move. If that's the case was the signal issue another reason for choosing country? (Like, maybe country listeners are willing to work harder to listen, or will put up with a worse signal?)

When we return to direct selling and when consolidated corporate radio understands that it's not just about how many people are listening, it's about how many are RESPONDING, formats like country (and jazz) will be commercially viable in New York. They will probably never garner 2 million cumes and command $1,000. spot rates, but they can still be profitable. FYI, in the 1990's I managed WKCW-AM, the longest continuous playing country station in the U.S.
