Here in Seattle, about six months or so ago Bonneville's KIRO NewsTalk (710 AM) began simulcasting on 97.3 FM, which had been Oldies for 20 years or more. Then, beginning in October or thereabouts although still simulcasting, their IDs and promos began referring to the station as NewsTalk 97.3
Beginning in April, 710 AM will flip to SportsTalk and carry live play-by-play of Mariners and Seahawks games, and KIRO NewsTalk will be on FM 97.3 exclusively.
In 1971, when I was in the air force stationed just outside Washington, DC, WAVA (Arlington, VA) was an all-news station on FM.
