They package market it with WKSC (Which is still the market's top CHR station) and WLIT.
I don't know what else they would flip it to.
As for WKQX, it's Cumulus' national hub for Modern Rock-Alternative. The VP's of programming, the voice guy, the imaging, even some of the specialty shows are created there. Unlike Emmis during the last days, they're programming a full blown Alternative format. Not a Alternative-Active Rock hybrid that Q101 was during it's last days. Ratings have been quite good, probably the best the frequency has seen in decades at times. Not bad in the target demos either. They'll leave it around for awhile.
I don't see iHeart trying to compete with WKQX unless it's for market clearance reasons.
V-103 as far as I've heard from WJMK is a non factor. WJMK's target seems in their upper 20s and into their 30s. White-Hispanic audience. Musically it's the WKSC and B96 audience of the late 90s and Early 2000s. Not the African-American Adults that V-103 targets.
Might reach a small amount of WGCI's upper demographic but it's still more Pop-Friendly for the time being. No idea what will happen in coming months if they decide to make format tweaks to it.
