Music Till Dawn on WEEI

This raises a good question. To my knowledge --- correct me if I'm
wrong --- ALL of CBS' O&Os were 50 kw stations except WEEI. Why didn't CBS
ever try to change that situation? For example, they might have tried to
buy WHDH (with WHDH-TV thrown in for good measure). Was such a move ever
considered? Seems to me it would have been smart strategically.
