I remember hearing on Bob Bittner's Let's Talk About Radio about two years
ago that Canadia businesses advertising on American stations cannot write
off the advertising on their taxes. In other words, it's pretty
unattractive for a Canadian property to be broadcasting on an United States
station, no matter how high the ratings are. Which makes religion even more
likely up there.
