Katz and Severin are two good counterexamples to the theory that Clear
Channel always goes the non-local approach.
Another example is WTAG - they seem to be earning their keep "hard way" on
that little 5K AM, rather than add yet another
Spanish station or worse yet a satellite-fed talk channel to the Worcester

Their 1200AM is also heard on WXKS-FM-HD2 where it does pretty well, though
not perfect, in Metrowest.
