And IIRC, 1150 (WWDJ--this week) was then sold to ARS, which, when it
was acquired by CBS (or was it then still Infinity), placed the
station in a trust with other properties it could not keep (because of
ownership caps) or did not want. The trust then dealt the station to
Mega Communications, which later sold it to the current owner, Salem,
which may ultimately sell it to LMA partner Radio Luz. Please correct
the preceding if it is wrong.

Along with having had the largest number of call signs in the market,
1150 may well have had the largest number of owners (probably
verifiable if somebody wanted to spend a lot of time on research) and
the largest number of formats (probably not verifiable).
