Well...it could also enable listener's radios (so equipped) to auto-retune 
to another local Clear Channel station with the same format as you leave 
one station's service area and enter another's.

The nationwide radio networks (like BBC-Radio 1, 2 and 3) in the UK employ 
this technique, so you can drive from London to Manchester or Oxford and 
not have to retune your radio because it does it automatically, searching 
for the strongest signal of that network in the area you're passing
