>From the Weekly Dig:


"Now they're looking to bring the network's "Solid Bible
teaching" and "Passionate praise and worship" to
Boston's South Shore. CSN has filed an application with the FCC that
would turn Plymouth/Scituate-based WSMA (90.5 FM) into a 20,000-watt CSN
affiliate....But CSN has a regulatory hurdle to clear before it starts winning
converts and uplifting souls here. Under FCC rules, stations in WSMA's
frequency range must be locally oriented and non-commercial, and must
maintain their main studio in their city of license. CSN has pledged to
include some local programming but wants a waiver to broadcast remotely."
