AP: FCC to announce digital radio decision

An AP story says that the FCC is expected to announce a 
decision on digital radio Thursday (10/10).  


The Herald's story quotes an official of Ibiquity as saying that
that company's system is the only proposal submitted, so the
decision is likely to go their way.  

I understand that under the proposed system, analog radios will
continue to work with existing stations, and there is no 
deadline for phasing out analog signals.   So apart from 
audiophile concerns, will there be a reason to get a digital 
radio any time soon?   Will there be digital-only stations?

Your groundless but entertaining speculations will be greatly
appreciated.  :-)
