    Not too surprised that the station would go talk, even though it would simulcast an AM station with the largest signal area in Dallas/Fort Worth.

    We're seeing a massive migration of talk radio to FM; I wouldn't be surprised if in the next few years a large percentage of FM stations have some kind of talk or talk-oriented format.

    I wonder if this wave of FM stations going talk has to do with a proposed regulation that would force radio stations to pay artists (as well as songwriters) when they play music.
