>>WABC used to do something similar where the newsman on the overnight
show would say WABC AM and FM New York.<<

WABC's legal IDs were done by live announcers due to a clause in the AFTRA contract with ABC, not FCC rules.  The contract stipulated that only certain AFTRA-represented employees could do the IDs (the DJs could not do them, only "staff announcers," many of whom also worked overnight news shifts on WABC).
