Abstract: Compactly supported positive regular Borel measures on the complex plane that share "certain" properties with normalized arclength measure on the boundary of the unit disk are called $ m$-measures. Let $ \mu $ be an $ m$-measure and let $ {S_\mu }$ be the cyclic subnormal operator of multiplication by $ z$ on the closure of the polynomials in $ {L^2}(\mu )$. Necessary and sufficient conditions for an operator in the commutant of $ {S_\mu }$ to be quasisimilar to $ {S_\mu }$ are investigated. In particular it is shown that if the Bergman shift and an operator in its commutant are quasisimilar, then they are unitarily equivalent.
