If the pattern of corporate repositioning continues, (see NH, seacoast,
etc.) it will only help the big guns  with national ad buys, market
positioning, etc., if "Boston" takes back #6 by growing the alleged ADI.  It
would seem that if the same cos. own most of the signals that matter, what
difference does it make if a market is co-opted as a sub-market?
