When Carr was off the air during the botched move to WTKK, his  
affiliates were fed best of shows for awhile. When it looked like the  
standoff was going to be extended, some affiliates picked up  
replacement programming.  Most all of them returned to the fold once  
it was clear that he was in place for the foreseeable future.  It  
seems at first glance that Entercom was handling the distribution of  
his show, but who knows.

I'm actually surprised he hasn't built a home studio and done his  
shows from there by now.  My guess is that once he's out from  
Entercom, he'll do just that and set up his own distribution to  
affiliates if he's contractually able to do so, no matter who his next  
"flagship station" may be.
