Sports is big $$$ for radio. Back in a moment after this
from Budweiser!

Boston has 4 sports stations (maybe more coming?) WEEI (AM)
is full time ESPN, WEEI (FM) is local talk, Red Sox, and
Celtics. WBZ-FM is local talk plus Patriots, Bruins (if they ever play again) and some Fox Sports. Finally WUFC, formerly progressive talk, runs NBC Sports and Yahoo sports. I have guessed that maybe CBS could do a deal with Clear Channel
to flip WXKS (AM), once progressive talk, then conservative talk, and now COMEDY) to either CBS or Fox (Clear Channel
syndicates Fox)

Anyway meltdown mode in the Pacific NW...calls for
the return of the Fairness Doctrine...suggestions the
FCC step in (note: FCC does not interfere in format
situations). Stations can run what they want provided
they don’t put out too much power, run public service
announcements, etc. They can’t be forced to run
progressive talk if they don’t want to.

Not YET anyway.

Remember ‘HDH and the Red Sox games we used to have to make our little brother stand on a chair with a coat hanger and touch the antenna of the radio to hear the show?
