Hannity is not heard in the Burlington-Plattsburgh market, although you can
catch him on WGY (810 Schennectady) but not all that well as you approach 800

Ingraham is now carried on WVMT (620 Burlington) up against Rush on WXZO (96.7
Willsboro)//WEAV (960 Plattsb.) Hannity could easily blow away Don (They've
got that middle market sound down real well) and Mike. He'd be up against Carr
