(UPDATE) Cumulus/Arbitron Ratings Deal
When Cumulus Regional VP Dave Crowl told a Cincinnati newspaper the corporate office was negotiating a new deal with Arbitron, it was only for the Cincinnati market. So we want to correct any misunderstanding that a corporate deal between Arbitron and Cumulus is close. It may be, but we have no knowledge of that.

Shame on radio ink for BELIEVING that Cumulus would institute ratings across their platform....seriously....that expense right now would be a death blow to them. Its not about Arbitron IT IS about cost. Cumulus would love ratings - they simply cannot afford it.
Again another Radio Ink "lets pat Cumulus on the back" story.
Guys - Hint: We are sick of them!

You mean they're not going to spend additional national dollars for a inferior service they trashed 4 months ago?
What a shocking turn of events, said no one ever.

Lemme understand this:
An organization this large is willing or needs to reluctantly pay an exhorbitant amount of money for questionable, less-than-dependable data in order to take at least something to the street. Do I get that correctly?
If so, I have to wonder if that constitutes evidence that "The Story" is not all that compelling or convincing.
