I remember that WXPO used to run Mike Douglas and Steve Allen from
Windham to meet the rules of the day. ( commercials were sometimes
inserted from Lowell )

WPRI does run some syndicated programming and commercial insertion
from Holyoke which indicates the rules were relaxed at some point.
Obviously news is still done from the studio.
