So far they have a 1.1 12+, which isn't success, but the 
demographics for WNFT are interesting:

49% of their audience is under 35.
0% of their audience is over 55.

Compare that to WBZ's demos:

9% of their audience is under 35.
62% of their audience is over 55.

None of this will actually pay many bills at WNFT, but it does show 
some interesting possibilities for an AM station.
