WSHE is basically, by today's terms Mainstream AC. In their case they use "The Best Of The 80s, 90s, 2K & Today" They just had a very strong book compared to previous ones. Whether they go out of their way to screw that up to flank WTMX, is their choice. Hubbard is not doing things the way Bonneville used to do as much anymore..
WLIT is stuck somewhere in between AC and Hot AC. Weekend overnights they slip into the Premium Choice "Soft Rock" format.
A partial reason Chicago does not have a Top Rated station in any of these formats (Classic Hits, Mainstream AC) is because there are so many of them.
In the AC side of things, it's 100.3 and 93.9 and WTMX to a much lesser extent (WTMX is more Adult CHR these days, you're not going to hear many songs older than a few years ago there.) but they have a strong morning show which is successful several age groups. If you took one of these away, (WLIT or WSHE) another would likely grow a little stronger. Then you have the suburban Hot AC stations (WXLC, WSSR, WZSR, WZVN, etc)
