IMO, based on the historical difficulty CBS and Clear Channel have had 
monetizing urban ratings in Hartford, and Entercom's recent history of 
moving toward FM with WEEI programming , they would be better served taking 
93.7 and making it part of the WEEI network.

WTIC AM would likely morph into a "WRKO south" from 10 AM forward and on 
weekends.  They could actually do Hartford a service by upgrading the 
morning drive to a BZ type news format, but that is expensive and given 
their history, I woukdn't bet on it.
