But the Cumulus deal gives Citadel the chance to have a second "NYC" FM 
if they so choose...they can complete the WFAS-FM move from Westchester 
to the Bronx, which at least will give them a class A signal on 103.9 
covering much (but not quite all) of the city.

I wouldn't be entirely surprised to see True Oldies Channel to appear on 
103.9 once the deal is done...
