I can't speak for how WESO or WGAW does it, but I suspect WARE's not a 
money-losing operation. It may not make a fortune in sales, but Marshall 
(and Dennis Jackson, the station's spiritual godfather) have found a decent 
way to retain a local morning show and automate most of the rest of the day 
without sounding out-of-town. IIRC, WARE is basically a one-man operation, 
and I'd have to imagine it's a profitable one.
