Tele-Media oblivious to failure

I was just pondering over a figure regarding the most recent 
Albany-Schenectady-Troy ratings. The stations Tele-Media owns there (WABY, 
WKLI, and WCPT) all have fallen drastically since they took over operations 
last Spring. WKLI has gone from a 6 as WABY-FM to a 2 as WKLI. WABY checks

of their days as "K-100". Yet Tele-Media seems oblivious to anything that 
goes on and insists that all is well.

clusters in New Hampshire and Massachusetts is good things, then how can the 
Albany cluster be so bad? Could this be similar to Greater Media/Boston and
