        WTIC (AM) in Hartford has always broken off the third hour and run
it later. For awhile when they first had the program, they ran it 10-noon
and 3-4 p.m., chopping off the first hour of their local PM drive talk
show. But that didn't last long. I figure they thought what I thought: bad
not to be local that far into the afternoon peak listening time, same as
they didn't want to give up 9-10 a.m. off the morning show. So now they run
the third hour of Not-A-Doctor from 7-8 p.m., and it's subject to various
sports play-by-play pre-emptions. During baseball, it's mostly not on, for
example. So they more-or-less toss the third hour into sub-prime time,
although as far as I know she's popular in this market. There was a
Beatlemania-like frenzy when she came to give one of her live appearances
at a local theater a year or two ago.
