All Access reports CBS plans to sell or swap the AM news station (and also 98.5 FM) as it merges with Entercom. Entercom, meanwhile, will unload WRKO and WKAF (97.7 FM).

Sooner than later, one or two corporations will own everything?

I fear that owning radio stations is like owning a newspaper or a copy shop; your best days are behind you and you 'll be lucky to stay afloat.

I'd rather listen to music by Lawrence Welk than listen to AM talk show radio stations.

Around the Boston area have any AM broadcasters Hybridized Digital-analog AM HD Radio HD-2 and AM HD Radio HD-3 ?...

Currently looking at the Hybridized Digital-analog HD Radio at

AM stations are able to broadcast in HD...but they do not get subchannels (HD-1, HD-2, etc.) like the FM stations do.

Where available how is AM-HD configured for listeners tuning in around the Hybridized Digital-analog HD Radio dial?

The all advertising station disguised as an all news station. Is it any wonder their ratings have been continually dropping?

Yeah, when they say "New England's news watch never stops" I find myself singing, a la Gilbert & Sullivan, "What, never?!?"

Now they only need to properly report it to their audience.

... because he belongs in the David Brudnoy/Dan Rea slot. Seriously.

So long as it keeps Traffic on the 3s (yeah, I know, it's now Traffic & Weather on the 3s, but Traffic is the important one), I don't care who owns 'BZ1030.

Well first off MC Slim JB MUST be given his own restaurant review show :-)

I suppose I could do a tech show of sorts.

We need to give the theszak some time to promote his use stenographic materials in city hall (a good Sunday morning talk show!)

Swirly obviously would need to do a Biking in Boston show (or a family show.. or both!)

Ron Newman could do an hour show about the happenings in Somerville

I also think there 6A-9A and the 4P-7P should be know as "The Commute" and several of us will be panelists with Adam and we'll talk about the commute, the T, roadways, and hot topic issues. Maybe we could take live calls from people stuck on the T in crowded broken down subway cars. Maybe instead of traffic on the 3's we can do the "The T on the two's" and offer a similar update.
