WABC could be (almost) all syndicated shows

The difference being that most of the WABC shows originate with WABC....and 
some shows that started on WABC and then were syndicated to others.

Which is vastly different than picking up and pluggin in a Michael Savage 
from the midwest, Laura Ingraham from wherever, and Rush from Florida.

Sign of the times? Here, WRKO finds it's almost all syndicated shows (only 
Finneran and Howie Carr are local;
well, Carr's syndicated by Entercom technically but 'RKO is the flagship and 
it's usually Boston-based talk--
certainly lately it has been). Now WABC in New York may be just about all 
syndicated. They're doing a news
show from 5-6 am with Charles McCord, followed by Imus, (apparently) Joe 
Scarborough, Rush, Hannity, Levin,
Laura Ingraham (replacing Bob Grant) and the new Curtis Sliwa show.
A powerful station in the nation's biggest city--just about all syndicated 
talk, though.
