Why do you guys insist on including ESPN Deportes in the # of sports stations?
It's just dumb. There is very, very little overlap between the audiences of English-language sports radio and Spanish-language sports radio.
Likewise, I'm sorry, but the audience for WSCR and WMVP in Milwaukee is also miniscule. For the same reasons that WGN, WIND, and WLS do not factor into the discussion of how many News/Talk stations are on the air in Milwaukee, the # of Chicago sports stations is irrelevant when talking about sports radio in Milwaukee. Look at the ratings, or lack thereof -- aside from a very small # of Chicago transplants and radio nerds like ourselves, folks in Milwaukee do not listen to those stations.
The real # here is 3 -- three local stations in Milwaukee carrying a sports talk format. Is that too many? Time will tell, but I don't think it's quite the "wasteland" you make it out to be.
