No, they are planning to keep the Portsmouth cluster.   However they  
have to spin off WGIP (1540/Exeter) to stay within the new ownership  
limits as part of the sale.  CC is shedding small market stations in  
isolated, non-growth areas like Maine (ex: the stations they just  
sold off to Blueberry) and areas such as Lebanon, NH and Burlington,  
VT.  Smaller markets along the Boston to DC corridor should be safe,  
like Portsmouth, Manchester, Worcester, Springfield and New Haven/ 

  CC has dozens of pre-fab and ready to go HD2 formats at their  
disposal, thanks to their Format Lab.  My guess is they will  
eventually put something on those HD2 signals.
