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.
