It appears that communication among management may not be a strong point 

The statement below was announced by the WUMB General Manager yesterday, 
the arrangement to temporarily simulcast WUMB on WLYN was suggested by 
the Chief Engineer, who happens to work for both stations, and was 
agreed to by the WUMB GM, who was happy to get the extra coverage. 

Apparently, the Operations Manager I communicated with a couple of days 
ago was still out of the loop on this agreement at the time.
