Here's an off-the-wall thought -- would the Red Sox, who wanted
an equity stake in a radio station, be interested in buying Ch.
62 to broaden the team's media empire? 

I see no reason why they would -- NESN gives them the added
benefit of cable subscriber fees in addition to ad revenue. But
if the Sox wanted to somehow build Ch. 62 into a WTBS/WGN-like
Superstation (of course, those channels are cutting back on
sports programming) and get cable clearance in 25 to 30 percent
of the country, it might be an interesting idea.
