"Left, right, whatever" talk station gone in D.C.

I don't think that would make that much sense however as WTOP has plenty of
coverage with their smattering of FM signals, what would make much more
sense is to put a sports talker on 1500, they already have the Nats and
Capitals plus Navy football and GW basketball. There is only one sports talk
outlet in the city that is syndicated from 6am to 12pm (ESPN 980), then goes
syndicated after 7pm as well except when they run O's games. I think its
ready for a sports talker that is local! 1500 is obviously a great signal,
its the best AM in the DC market, something more that Federal News should be
