To maintain alternative rock station 101.9 WRXP somewhere on the FM dial.

WRXP is a popular alternative rock station on the FM dial and 101.9's ratings improved significantly when Merlin Media (the outgoing owner, who sold 101.9 to CBS) changed its format from all news to alternative rock. WRXP has a strong following and is the one station in NYC to play alternative music. It's the best radio station in the tri-state area and provides a frequency on the terrestrial dial for people to listen to alternative and modern rock, bands such as Black Keys and Florence and the Machine to name a couple. WFAN wants to broadcast the same program on two frequencies even though its AM frequency is strong and can be heard all the way in Canada to the north and Virginia to the south. It's not right for WFAN to broadcast on two frequencies when it takes away a spot on the dial that's popular with a core group. Therefore, we ask WFAN to maintain WRXP at 101.9 or find another spot for WRXP on the FM dial. Thank you.
