And is highly rated, especially since the Giants won the World Series.

95.7 has a long, long climb to even get close to KNBR, which is established
and has all the more popular franchises.

This is not a duplicate of WEEI vs. WBZ-FM... and there are no weaknesses in
KNBR's blowtorch signal. In fact, there has been no Giants affiliate in
Sacramento at times... KNBR's signal is like a local in Sacramento.

And 50kW AMs actually have an advantage in the Bay Area due to the vast size
of the market and the terrain...
