WRPT simulcasting completely with WSRO is a relatively new thing.  The
stations were simulcasting some programs while going their own ways for
others, but it's only been about the last week or two that the stations
have shared all programming.  WRPT is still a daytimer, and when they're
off, WSRO continues to run Talkamerica programming.  Lately though, SRO
might as well shut off at night, since their new single tower setup
barely covers Marlboro/Hudson during the DAY, let alone after sunset.
What a waste.
