Now that Worcester is considered part of the Boston metro, I wonder how
long WXLO will resist the temptation to portray themselves as a "Boston"
station, much as WAAF has been doing for several years. OTOH, WXLO's col
is Fitchburg, and I rarely hear any references to that city outside of
legal ID (which is buried anyway).
As far as WXRV goes, they never got any numbers as WLYT either. AAA has a
certain amount of snob appeal attached to it...I'm sure that's got a lot to
do with why most stations with that format keep it, it's sure not a
ratings-getter much of anywhere.
