Huh?  Got some stats to back this up?  Sure, most AMs are running bird
programming today, but with only a few exceptions, an AM station these days
is a money sinkhole anyway...you just try to lose less.  I work in the
Manchester, N.H. market (top 200, but just barely) and all FMs serving this
market are programmed locally.  Granted, some are automated & voicetracked,
but it's still locally produced.
