SNR just doesn't have any major advertising.

Well the BigJab could join the WEEI Sports Network I suppose but
overnights would be a problem because of FOX.

I know someone who worked for SNR in Chicago and he said their biggest
billing source 4 years ago was WWZN which is a little frightening. The
Chicago office handled all the billing for WWZN local accounts.
