Should also be known, there are several different types of Country formats.
WUSN was for the most part Mainstream Country (The Hot AC of Country)
WEBG came along to be Hot Country (The CHR of Country)
This was initially somewhat successful for them. But it also pushed WUSN to change to Hot Country, which in turn helped them regain control of the Country ratings in this market.
The 6+ numbers you see for WKQX are normal for Alternative stations. WKQX has actually done better in some books than many. The format itself sells on demographic breakdowns which are not seen by the public. Men 18-34, Persons 18-34, etc. Actually most do. They sell on demos. Not 6+
