Another change: They now state the exact time of the next report e.g. "Next traffic report at 23 minutes after the hour." instead of the old "next traffic in 10 minutes".  Combine this extra verbiage with the extra mouthful at the beginning and there's now at least 5 seconds less time available for real traffic info.
