Wouldn't that conflict with anti-trust regulations, seeing that Clear 
Channel already owns 3 stations (WHYN, WNNZ, and WHYN-FM), and is getting 
one more (WPKX) in the AMFM merger. I know that the FCC is flagging Saga for 
only having 4 stations, would the same happen to the immense Clear Channel 
for having 6?
