Re: WEVD sale

Well, New York already has 2-1/2 talk stations. Public radio station WNYC
(AM) 820 carries telephone talk much of the day and night (and I believe
gets quite respectable ratings). WNYC's brand of talk (much of it from NPR
and heard here on WBUR) is far superior to the talk on either WOR or WABC.
WNYC has the advantage of a dial position just north of WABC, so New York's
three AM talkers line up next to each other on the dial. Unfortunately
WNYC's night signal, though great for just 1 kW, is just 1 kW and New York's
five boroughs cover almost 400 square miles (and that doesn't count any
