    The latest numbers (May 21) show The Bet has a cume of 800 which is dead last in the Denver-Boulder market. To put things in perspective, in January, KEZW had a cume of 33,900. So, in other words, they only have 2% of the listeners they had just four months ago.

    It's a shame they killed off KEZW for 1430 AM to be the sacrificial flagship lamb of this betting format.

    It could be they (Entercom/Audacy) are making more in revenue now, than with the old KEZW format even with such low ratings...
    I wonder what MGM and others are giving Entercom/Audacy now?
    And how much KEZW made with commercials in the last year of their oldies format?

    I just added a post that placed above yours due to the date of it about Audacy changing the format of more stations to their betting format...
