Gosh, when I worked at WCCC Hartford, we *always* ID'd when simulcasting 
as "WCCC and WCCC-FM Hartford".  Of course, now they have to ID as "WCCC 
West Hartford, WCCC-FM Hartford" because the COL of the AM has changed.

I've never once never heard a station ID as "WXXX City, WXXX-FM City".  
Of course, now the ID would be spoken at ten times normal speed on the 
left channel at :53 so who could tell?
