I would think it hinges on when GM officially takes over WCRB.  Has 
that happened yet?  IIRC, GM has already closed on WTHK--they control 
that frequency already.  They're just choosing to make the format 
switch on that date.  Until GM finally closes on 102.5, nothing is 
changing.  I'm sure their deal with Nassau will go into effect once 
that happens.
