660 has a killer signal throughout all of CT, the best out of all the  
big NYC AM's.  WFAN normally gets around a one share in Hartford, and  
that has continued even after Imus left.  WABC is not as strong in the  
central part of the state as WFAN, and Imus has a lot of longtime  
listeners in Connecticut.  WCCC-AM figures they can make a few bucks  
running Imus.  He has a built in fan base in the market who would most  
likely tune in, if they can publicize it.
