Mega Sells WAMG Boston

   All Access reporting that Mega is selling WAMG (1150 Boston) to Salem
Communications for $8.6 million. Salem is planning on using WAMG and another
station they have purchased in Colorado to launch a conservative news/talk
format. Salem also owns WEZE (590) and WROL (950) in Boston, WROL is running
talk in afternoons and evenings. I wonder if the talk now on WROL will shift
to 1150.

   And the sale will break up the simulcast of Mega's Spanish format on
co-owned WLLH (1400 Lowell/Lawrence). Will Mega be looking to unload WLLH,
or will they keep it and localize the Spanish format for the Merrimack
