Chicago’s WIQI-FM Could Be Flipping To Sports

UPDATE 12/07/12: CRM now cites an upper executive with GTCR, and the investment company behind Merlin Media,  as saying that Merlin Media's Chicago stations are not for sale.

Original Posting...

Interesting item posted at Chicago Radio & Media, Larz reports Merlin Media’s investment group  and Cumulus Media have been talking ‘sale’.

Look for Cumulus to take over operations of WLUP-FM and WIQI-FM in the very near future. Do not look for WIQI-FM to stay a 90s/00s AC station or flip to Country, though.

It appears that Cumulus & CBS have an agreement to place the new syndicated CBS Sports Network on 101.1 FM.

Something public should be happening soon.
