WCBS obviously feels it was worth the risk of losing newshounds to arch 
rival WINS (even tho co owned)  KYW is talking to the Phillies for 
taking over from WPEN (the Phillies want NOTHING to do with WIP)

For the few conflicta, WODS or WZLX would work fine. The Sox would 
actually prefer FM because other than WBZ none of the AM signals serve 
NW W and SW of Boston well.
