But it bears noting that WOWO's not what it used to be, either. NOTHING 
local there overnight anymore - just the usual birdfeed talk overnight 
without even a local news presence. It still covers its home market 
(better, in fact, than many of us doomsayers predicted a decade ago), but 
it's not doing anything overnight that isn't already available on other 
frequencies outside the market. And by the time the local morning show 
comes on, it's back up to 50kW and still blanketing the region like it used to.
