Clear Channel Yanks Rush In New Orleans

Thu Feb 28 21:14:04 EST 2008

WCAP would be one such. Would Clark bite? I doubt whether Rush would
be offered as barter. Where else would a flip to 1200 produce an
opening where Rush is not already on a local signal? Manchester? no;
Worcester? no; Providence? no. Isn't Rush already on 930 in the NH
Seacoast? How about Fall River and New Bedford?
