Doubtful that ESPN would want 98.5 because they would only clear overnights. That was a big complaint they had about being on WEEI.

Also 98.5 probably wouldn't clear any of their live event programming (NBA, MLB) because of Bruins conflicts and wanting to keep the developing audience for DA's show.
