Post NARBA, WENR and WLS shared time on 890 (one of two pairs of Class
IA share-timers--the other pair were WFAA and WBAP on 820). Pre-NARBA
WENR/WLS would have been on 870 and WFAA/WBAP would have been on 800.
There were also several time shares involving stations that became
Class IBs. One involved WBBM (later a IA) and a station in Nebraska
(which may or may not have been today's KFAB). WTIC and WBAL were also
involved in a time-share, as were, I believe, KEX and KOB (KOB was a
special case--it never became a Class I of either sub-class). Note
that these seem to involve station pairs that were relatively distant
from each other. I think this had something to do with synchronous
operation, which ended for these high-power stations with the advent
of directional antennas and the creation of the IB class, which may
have coincided with NARBA.
