As of 3:00am this morning, WCBS Newsradio 880 (AM) in NYC is available  
on WCBS-FM's HD-3 channel.  Here's the announcement:

"-For 41 years you’ve been able to listen to Newsradio on you’re AM  
radio dial at 880 am.
- Five years ago you were able to listen to Newsradio using your  
computer as a radio by logging onto wcbs880 dot com
- Just over a year ago you were able to purchase an HD radio and  
listen to 880 am with significantly better audio quality
- This summer WCBS 880 and other CBS Stations were made available on  
your PDA's and I Phones thru the AOL Radio app
- TODAY!.... if you have an HD Radio… WCBS has moved onto the FM dial…

The new HD Radio technology allows the FM dial to expand by  
potentially tripling the number of radio stations you can listen to.  
Almost every FM station that you have listened to the past decade now  
has the ability to create two other radio channels next to their  
original dial position.

In the wee hours of this morning, WCBS Newsradio 880 began airing on  
the HD FM band and can now be heard on one of our sister FM station  
CBS-FM’s new channels. If you have an HD radio, tune to 101.1 and then  
go two more channels over to 101.1 channel 3…and you will hear in  
brilliant audio quality your newsradio station, WCBS 880.

We urge you to begin converting your radios to HD Radios because your  
choices for free radio programming will multiply exponentially over  
what you can receive on your traditional radio…and all those extra  
channels are free to listen to. You want choice and you want it for  
free…get an HD Radio and listen to all the choices available to you."
