That's true for all the Greater Media stations. The delay of 7-10
seconds is for the processing of the HD radio signal. The studio
monitors and the monitors in the building are in real time, so it's
easy to forget about the delay unless you bring a radio into the
building or hear the broadcast over a phone.
