Another brick in the wall....  Seems like just yesterday that services 
like Metro and Shadow set up shop and became opportunities for local 
stations to release their in-house staff and go with a contractor to 
provide talent for once core services like news and traffic.

And today, that service takes a hit.  I have an idea.  That NOAA weather 
radio computer generated voice that has taken hold?  See if 'he' has 
time in his schedule to run down the latest headlines.
