McCord was brought on to the board a year or so ago, IIRC, for the 
specific purpose of preparing the stations to be sold.

I wonder when he was PD of WCBS-FM? The station is renowned for having 
had only two PDs during its 1972-2005 oldies tenure, neither of whom was 
McCord, so he must have been there during its struggling pre-1972 era.
