Two stations that I know of, have abandoned any identification with the AM.
WCCM, 1110AM in Salem, NH is now "Valley 98.9" and if you listen, you would
never know they are listenable on AM.
WMRC in Milford in now simply identified as MY 101.3
Both stations have dropped any local service that they were doing when they
were just AM stations.
I'm not sure this is what the FCC had in mind.....
