As usual with Drudge, there's some truth to that, yet it's not quite 
completely correct.

CC did a group deal with, well, itself (Premiere, which distributes Fox 
News Radio) to put Fox content on the CC stations where it makes sense. 
It's not necessarily replacing all other existing news content - for 
instance, WHAM here in Rochester keeps CBS News and ABC's Paul Harvey, but 
will use Fox newscasts instead of CBS at the top of the hour overnight. And 
they won't put it where it doesn't make sense. You won't hear it on WHJJ or 
WKOX/WXKS. And it won't appear on the music stations at all.
