WGBH-FM - NPR-1 - Mostly music....

WBUR-FM - NPR-2 - News/Talk/Information...

Makes sense...no?

I think the drawback is that they would compete with each other.  The
idea being that they wouldn't be creating new audience...but splitting
the current audience in two.  

Therfore, splitting the donation base in two....  Kind of a
cannibalization of their constituancy...
