I'm pretty sure that WSNE 93.3, though commonly regarded as a Providence station, is licensed to Taunton--and always has been. Hence, by its own rules, the FCC must reject arguments that WPEP's going dark will end "local" radio service to Taunton.

> TAUNTON - Radio station WPEP 1570 AM, the city's homegrown - and lone 
> - broadcast voice could soon be silenced for good. 
> The Federal Communications Commission on April 27 approved a proposal 
> application from the owner of WNSH AM of Beverly - which operates on 
> the same 1570 AM frequency - to boost its daytime power from 500 watts 
> to 50,000 watts. 
> In order for the Beverly station to increase its wattage WPEP will 
> have to relinquish its use of the 1570 frequency, to avoid interfering 
> with the stronger signal. All signs are that the out-of-state licensee 
> and owner of WPEP has all along been a willing partner to the deal
