I suspect Mega is eager to gobble up a bigger Boston market
"potential" to run by the national advertisers more than anything
else.  Esp. with the reconfigured Boston market beyond the previous
boundaries.  I also suspect that 1400 will be a repeater for 1150 for
much longer than anticipated, with the potential for a local morning
show, if that.  A Lawrence or Lowell sales office would more than pay
for itself (and the electricity and maintenance for the kilowatt xmtrs
in Lowell and Lawrence).

It seems even less likely now that Costa Eagle can further penetrate
Lawrence with SP (critical mass with Hispanic ad dollars?) if they
were to bring 800 into his SP stable with 1110 Salen NH and 1490
