And from Cape Cod.....

Not at all - the point of the article is that none of OUR LOCAL stations
provided ANY election evening coverage; they continued broadcasting their
usual monotonous evening feeds from far, far away.
WMVY is an honest station with actual DJ's in the studio after 5pm. They
come in loud and clear here in Sandwich and elsewhere. They also cover the
South Coast and more with a relay in Newport.
