I don't think he meant a revenue stream for the jazz format, 
which is most likely a temporary placeholder. I think he 
meant a revenue stream for the Portuguese/ethnic format 
that the station will reportedly switch to, by selling 
airtime via brokered programming and/or by local ethnic 
sponsors. Much of the programming on Langers' 650 AM WSRO 
is brokered, bought airtime by Portuguese and Brazilian 
program producers.
