Regardless of CBS's decision (and it seems 'in the can' that WRKO goes) it
can't bode well for the NOW at WRKO (pun intended).  Think of it - why
should CBS Radio venture out there with the signal and do anything
monetarily funky or ADventuresome when the gains of the signal could: a)
raise its resale value only minimally as the rate card will be slow to
change with audience gains and b) the station would become a CBS competitor
to contend with down the road.  It may actually make (unfortunate) sense for
CBS to let WRKO remain at status quo.  Sad to see a heritage station go out
that way.  And the meat....etc.
