Today's (09/18) Boston Herald, in a short item appearing within its
business section, reports that WBUR plans to sell its Providence,
RI outlet WRNI-AM 1290.  Jane Cristo is quoted as saying that WBUR
did not intend to be an NPR operator in the Ocean State for
the long term, and she believes its time for an organization there
to carry on what WBUR started.  She does NOT rule out a sale to 
a commercial broadcaster.  The item stated that WRNI has a 
cumulative audience of 35,000 people in the Providence metro;  
nothing in the story about the repeater on 1230 in Westerly.
Could that become another totally WBUR-fed satellite?
