It almost seems like CC finally realized they should have kept Rush
(and Coast to Coast) on WRKO, but if indeed 1200 stays (conservative)
talk they get to run shows and their sponsored advertising, shows like
Hannity, Beck, Levin etc. No salaries to expend for local hosts. They
did just spend $14 million for WFNX and may make money off that with
variety hits. Now, they manage to make cuts with the local shows WXKS
AM had (and on facebook and twitter, Jay and Jeff's fans are

A tough talk radio market? WRKO, WTKK, and yes WBZ (etc.) made it
tough despite local hosts, slightly better signal, etc.? CC does seem
to want to keep the shows/ads on in Boston somehow though. Instead of
something like trying to work out a deal with 1510 to carry the likes
of Hannity (I know, that sends a shiver down the spines of the prog
folks), they already have 1200 and can keep that going. And yes what
else goes there
other than Spanish, true oldies, prog talk etc.--they do seem to want
to keep the talk on.
"Express YOURself", just not with local hosts.
