Burlington Free Press reports that WVAA 1390 in Burlington, currently
Air America, will switch to ESPN as WCAT this Monday. Prog. talk moves
to where ESPN currently is, WTWK 1070. This also means will
end at sunset...(previously, AAR had been on the daytimer 1070 and was
switched to 1390, but now they're back to the previous freq)

"Beginning Monday, the national feed for ESPN Radio will be heard
locally on AM 1390, a South Burlington station that is switching its
call letters from WVAA to WCAT, according to Rich De- Lancy, the
market manager for Champlain Radio Group, which owns the station.

"ESPN Radio has been available in the area on WTWK-AM (1070) in South
Burlington, which is restricted to broadcasting only sunrise to sunset
under its radio license from the Federal Communications Commission.
Air America, the talk show programming on WVAA, will move down the
dial to WTWK, which also is owned by Champlain Radio. The programming
will be trimmed to sunrise to sunset on the 5,000-watt station,
DeLancy said."
