What you think.Don Day | January 3, 2008
I threw out the “10 questions” poll the other day not having any idea if anyone would take the time to vote. To my delight, about 90 of you took a few moments.
You think KIZN/Kissin’ 92.3 had the strongest performance in the fall – and will wind up on top of the country roost yet again in the results later this month. Quite a few of you think KAWO/Wow Country 104.3 will not make it to the end of the year as a country station – but a plurality think KTMB/99.1 The Man is the most likely station to flip formats.
The conventional wisdom also seems to indicate KBOI & Citadel will again keep the Boise State Athletics radio contract – in fact, a majority think the station will hang on.
The chattering class overwhelmingly thinks Bob FM will be a niche player.
The smart money appears to be on Peak and Citadel settling their lawsuit out of court.
A whopping 93% of voters say Spanish-language radio will stay at its current level or grow. Almost no one thinks it will shrink.
Even with strong support for Citadel’s position in many questions – many of you think Citadel is most likely to leave the market this year. Most of the questions I asked will have a definitive answer by the end of the year – however it’s entirely possible no group will sell out this year. In hindsight, I should have provide that voting option.
A large majority thinks the Boise Community Radio Project will continue to have trouble getting a broadcast license.
And finally, a plurality thinks KDJQ will be reclaimed by the bank. More on that point soon.
