Cincinnati.com is reporting that Cumulus-Cincinnati is negotiating an new Arbitron deal. 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. Arbitron policy does not permit news outlets or trade publications to post non subscriber ratings in the press. All a technicality."
