If you were to choose.....

This is a false choice. I'd choose neither one.
I'd be looking at many a third option: Organizing a listener revolt. Create as much bad PR for parent CBS as possible about WBZ abandoning its decades-old role. File complaints to the FCC telling them that the station is no longer operating in the public interest. Anything and everything possible to make it obvious that the present management is trying to kill the station. Try to get this GM fired for being unimaginative in the face of a perceived revenue shortfall, and for being completely tone-deaf to the listeners.
