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.
