RE: NH Public Radio cutting

Why does this sound remarkably like what MPR did, and found themselves
in tremendous hot water? Are they expecting WBOQ to build into NH now?

Perhaps WBOQ could re-illuminate a group of darkened AM signals to get
into the further reaches of NH/ME less expensively, unless the licenses
are deleted...

I find it rather contradictory that while NHPR is touting this change
as one that will address the local needs and concerns of the people
of New Hampshire, in reality they are mostly adding NPR and PRI
material to their schedule.
