1. (Easiest) buy both Merlin stations and flip WLUP to Soft AC
2. (Unlikely but reasonable) buy both Merlin stations and flip WKQX to Soft AC and program WLUP harder/more current to get away from The Drive. To complete your wet dream Entercom would then immediately flip either WBMX or WXRT to straight up Alternative
But this ain't happening. Soft AC is not a format Hubbard is chomping at the bit to put on here. They have a very good corner of the female market locked down and don't need more on the older end of the demo. If Hubbard ends up with these stations they stay mostly as is except The Loop and The Drive get programmed to compliment each other instead of compete.
