Not unless something drastic has changed recently.  The lower master
belongs to Greater Media, and only their stations use it (all except
Magic for analog, and all four for digital).  Kiss and the two CBS
stations are on the upper master, and I don't know how they're
handling IBOC on those signals.  (According to our tour guide from
that visit, which I believe was two and a half years ago now so this
may be out-of-date, Magic's IBOC doesn't use the upper master because
Greater didn't want to have to negotiate with the other two operators.
Since they own the lower master, they could put Magic's IBOC on from
there without the consent of CBS and CCU.)
