Keith Mitchell, Cumulus-Cincinnati Operations Director and WGRR-FM PD  told cincinnati.com, "Our corporate office is currently negotiating a new contract with Arbitron and we hope to have that finalized soon." RVP Dave Crowl adds, "Keith is correct. We are in the final stages of completing a new deal with Arbitron. Our numbers will be posted by the time the next monthly is released.
