Isn't the show formerly known as the Big Mattress still strong in that
demo? I would doubt that Infinity will drop Laquidara, especially after
he did them a big favor a couple of years ago in relation to shifting
over to 'ZLX so Stern could take over mornings at 104.1.

What about this possibility: Imus on WODS? After all, Imus' demo is
supposedly much older now and he might fit in with that group, right?
(I'm not sure of 103.3's mornings ratings so I am just throwing that
out there.)
