>>Can WPLJ be far behind becoming WABC-FM?<<

Yes...VERY far behind.

WZZN was doing essentially nothing in the ratings, and was ripe for a change.  WPLJ is an established station with strong ratings for many years, and is a well-known brand name.  Not gonna happen.

Remember too that what's propping up WLS-FM is a syndicated format...Scott Shannon's True Oldies.  They'll have a few local shows with well-known local air personalities (Dick Biondi is one), but most of the programming will be off the bird.
