ADDENDUM 7:30AM: We went back to look at archived Kiese Blogs, and found the ratings for Summer 2008, the last full book completed before the swap between 97.3 and 94.9 in November. It turns out, the station ranked top ten in 18-34 as well as 25-54 back then.
So again, we make the argument: Why not return the "Sound" format to the 94.9 frequency?

It's the sense of yours truly that, just as happened at the Kiesewetter blog, the large majority of you who comment here at TSMW are against the "Sound" move from 97.3/WSWD-FM Ft. Thomas to the HD2 subchannel of 94.9/WYGY-FM Cincinnati, which sent "Wolf 94.9" packing back to the aforementioned 97.3 and put a new Adult Hits/AC format on 94.9 as "Rewind".
Now, to dip into the opinion part of blogging if we may.
It is this blogger's personal opinion that they should have just undone the November swap, and if they really wanted an 80s feed, put THAT on an HD2 subchannel.
We're as big of a fan of Huey Lewis as anyone who was born early enough that that was the "cool" thing to listen to(and Your Tri-State Media Watcher will celebrate his 24th birthday in August [8/19])...but to displace "The Sound" for 80s music when the former was actually pretty successful at the 94.9 signal...kind of questionable.
And you watch and see if Cumulus maybe doesn't capitalize on the angst going around town right now from all those who were "Sound" listeners, and try flipping 92.5/WOFX-FM Cincinnati or 94.1/WNNF-FM Cincinnati to a AAA format.
We don't know that they will of course. It's speculation.
