My understanding (not inside information, just from listening) is that
'BZ radio doesn't have any reporters out on weekends unless some major
news breaks.

I did see coverage of the rally on at least one of the late
newscasts.  It got maybe 15 seconds (which seems about right in view
of the polling results).
