I've heard rumours for months about CC wanting to take Spanish off of 
one of those two stations-- 1430 would make more sense for them than 
1200, I suppose, but isn't 1430 still the weaker signal, so why put 
their big guns like Limbaugh on that one?  Btw, several years ago, I 
came very close to striking a deal to bring progressive talk back to 
1430, but it fell through for reasons I cannot discuss on this 
list.  Ultimately, progressive talk ended up on 1510 under what is, I 
believe, a lease-time agreement.  I have no idea what sort of format 
CC would choose, but yes, I've definitely heard that talk is on their 
list of possibilities.
