Clear Channels links with Fox News Radio

I doubt that CC's liberal talkers will fall under this directive for 
obvious reasons.  Those stations are airing Air America news which fits 
that format better.  I wouldn't be surprised if some of CC's left 
leaning stations pick up Alan Colmes though.   However, CC's mainstream 
and right-wing talkers probably will make the switch.  Right now that 
wouldn't affect Boston, but I could see WTAG/Worcester and 
WGIR/Manchester (and it's simulcast partners) switching over.  
WHJJ/Providence does run some Air America programming, but there are 
also local shows and Imus, so who knows if they'll pick up Fox or not.
