PLUS LIABILITIES? THEY'RE NOTHING BUT LIABILITIES! I can't find any information about Media Americas Corp, even on Google(tm), but the word "Americas" with plural spelling sounds suspiciously like Spanish-language or even Portugues language programming. WWZN just adopted a Jeff Santos-for-six-hours-a-day format. Could that be reduced to ZERO?

Not likely.  I think a lot of the programs on that station are paid for 
by the people who do the particular show, and the sports programming 
(left over from a previous format) also pays some of the bills. That 
said, I doubt the station is making a ton of bucks, and its previous 
formats didn't do that great either.
