That can be said of any market in this area,  when I first started out in
news I was part of an 8 person news team at WLLH, WCAP (our cross town
rivals) had at least 5 or 6 news people (even though they were only a
daytimer back then).  You can look at Boston as another example of radio
news that is only a shell of what it once was as well.  I suppose someone
on this list can look back at Worcester and Manchester as well and draw
the same conclusion.
