CD 101.9 is gone forever

Along with WNUA, WVMV/Detroit, KIFM/San Diego, KTWV in LA, KKSF/San
Francisco and WLVE/Miami continue to bill well and bring in desirable
demos. However, these are all heritage smooth jazz stations with
established audiences in markets that are condusive to the format.
There are fewer and fewer of these stations around anymore.
Philadelphia used to be solid SJ market, but not so much anymore.
The latest incarnation of the format on 97.5 has struggled in the
ratings with the Personal People Meter. Same goes for KHJZ in
Houston, the other test PPM market. That station is rumored to be
contemplating a format change as well. While WQCD was a decent
smooth jazzer, it always struggled in the ratings and was never
considered one of the top smooth jazz stations in the industry,
despite being located in the top market in the country. The format
is slowly dying on terrestrial radio, and outside of a handful of
successful stations, more than likely the only place you'll find this
music in the future is online or on satellite.
