Hmmmm....Just thinking out loud....  Now that ARS has made some movement
(upwards) with WEGQ....Why would they replace it with talk to compete
with theri AM station?

I think Mark's contention is that CBS/Westinghouse/Granum/Infinity(?) is
going to do talk on FM and compete with ARS's WRKO.  

What does CBS own on FM...?  

WODS? WBCN?  WZLX? (What did I leave out...?!!!)

Are any of these doing bad enough to warrant a change to a much more
expensive-chance-ey format?
