Will all Jazz Stations end up like The Wave?

My question is "Will all Jazz stations end up like The Wave?" and turn into an easy listening format to which Norah Jones and Phil Collins dominate? It seems like more and more stations are doing this and abandoning the Jazz presence all together.

Unfortunately I believe so. The jazz market is becoming smaller and smaller in the mainstream which is what radio is MAINSTREAM.. I believe that great jazz will continue to live on but with a different presence. Probably in the form of internet radio or podcasts. Not to worry though... there will always be a market for this music!!
