Don't know how much clout syndicators and their programs' hosts have, but it would seem that contracts and broadcast fees should be structured such that it would be financially disadvantageous to a radio station to run a program outside of a prime window e.g. at 1:00 in the morning for a show that normally airs during the day or evening.  

I could see raising the fee or not allowing total market exclusivity.

Or are syndies so desperate for numbers (of stations) that they don't care?
