You're right - I was thinking about 910 on its old facilities, which were 
slightly less advantageous than 960, at least in the South Bay, because the 
transmitter site is considerably to the north. (960's at the Bay Bridge 
toll plaza, 910's up in the Emeryville area). With the power increase on 
910, it's a somewhat better facility - and yes, there's no reason to have 
expected CCU to have made that swap. And yes, Savage is now on 910. (IIRC, 
ABC dropped him on KSFO after he left WABC for WOR in New York.)
