     This also calls into doubt the future of the CBS radio network. The owned stations that serve as CBS affiliates -- most of them with good ratings and demos in big and medium markets -- form the backbone of ratings and revenue for the network and it's still good-to-excellent news service. Even those, such as WBZ (AM), that don't clear all the programs still, of course, run the spots. How many of the buyers of these stations are going to be interested in remaining network affiliates? Maybe more to the point, does CBS want to keep the radio network going?
