WLIB/WOWO-1190 (was: KGA night app)

I believe that 1190 in Annapolis is dark and that the CP to move it to
the WWLG 1360 six-tower night site (geographically, the former WCBM
680 four-tower site, slightly northWEST of Baltimore) has been turned
in. The owners of the Annapolis station also own WAGE 1200 in Leesburg
VA, which they want to upgrade to 50 kW-D (and I'm not sure what, if
anything, at night). I believe that the 1190 station, with its
Baltimore coverage, is being sacrificed to enable the upgrade of WAGE,
which, with the higher daytime power, will become a DC rimshot (by
day, anyhow).
