Actually, most Infinity/CBS stations never were on the web. They have required new
aquisitions to stop streaming if they had been previously. I would assume they
were afraid of losing on-air listening, concerned about stations "pirating"
successful programming such as Imus and Stern off the web, and copyright issues
regarding ASCAP & BMI.
Now, they may be doing an about face. Mel Karmazin recently announced a "new
internet venture" but has been short on specifics. If this is to pass, and since
more and more stations are in cyberspace, we could see Infinity/CBS/Viacom stations
on the net in the not too distant future.
