when did the FCC relax COL rules?

Ooohhh, this stuff happens. One evening several years ago, the former Clear
Channel talk station in Augusta, Maine, cut off the 6 to 7 PM segment of the
Howie Carr Show with a Red Sox pre-game advisory that very clearly was
intended to be heard only by board operators at the Sox affiliate
stations --- of which this was not one(!). It went on for close to an hour.
I called the studio and no one answered the phone. That told me something.
Wa'rn't no one home.
I pretty much concluded at that point that CC didn't care much about its
stations in Maine.
