A local station that lacks local spots could explain it away as due to 
insufficient "spot time" or avails. Or... they may want to consider that 
if they have nothing to offer the local community, that advertisers may 
wish to save their money for other media.  Advertisers don't make a 
station local. Local stations can attract advertisers.  And "numbers" 
need not be a factor since word of mouth, business associations and 
local presence in good will efforts can for a basis for success.
