Paul I am happy for your situation.
In Boston now there is no local ownership with TV ( WGBH is exempt from

Radio you can make a case that Greater Media is locally owned and the
people I know who work for them are happy.
CBS and Entercom are simply clusters that out of town owners look at.
It is brutal out there.
