A good example of where AM is useful is in Vermont where WDEV (550 Waterbury) is simulcast on WDEV-FM (96.1 Warren). While the FM (and its translators) footprints are superior particularly by night, there remain locations (fixed and travel) where the AM penetrates the Green Mountain topographical challenges with ease. This is also an option since the AM could not stand alone fiscally, no doubt.

Some other format? Such as?
Keep doing what they are doing, unless an offer they can't refuse comes
I'm sure there are some areas where the AM signal is still useful; though I
imagine much of that area is outside their market area.
How much is a 50kW signal lower-frequency major market AM station worth?
