If Cumulus is smart (they tend to be dumb, unfortunately), they'll flip it to Rock.

There is a massive gap between WFBQ (Q95) and Alt 103.3.

Hmmm? Looks like somethings brewing(no pun intended).

From RAMP Radio and Music Pros"
Cumulus Media solved the issue of owning two Top 40 stations in Indianapolis by flipping WYRG (Energy 93.9) to 93-9X, Indy's Rock Station. The flip was not unexpected -- Cumulus already owned WYRG, Country WFMS and Classic Hits WJJK, and as a result of its recent acquisition of Entercom's three-station group -- heritage Top 40 WZPL, AC WNTR (107.9 The Mix) and CBS Sports affiliate WXNT-AM, the company ended up with two Pop stations. That awkward situation has now been remedied. The Indianapolis Rock audience can now expect to hear songs from Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, AC/DC, Metallica, Nirvana, Guns N' Roses, etc. on the new 93-9X, which will run commercial-free through Memorial Day weekend.

Great move! I see it’s imaging is identical to the highly successful 93X in the Twin Cities. If they program this similarly, this station should do very well!

On another note, only doing commercial free through the weekend? Sheesh, radio companies are pinching pennies as of late, lol.
