  1. Something is really wrong if a 50kW station can be had for $175K and go totally dark less than two years later because the transmitter they have to lease in order to operate became cost prohibitive.


  2. The only way I can ever see a station ever again broadcasting at 1510 in the Boston is if the real estate company owing the land the transmitter site sits on were to acquire the license, hire someone with good management experience to become general manager of the station, and give him/her free rein.

    With the owners of the transmitter site owning the 1510 license, they wouldn’t have to pay the onerous costs, and if they hire someone with good management experience to run it, the station might at least break-even with the right programming.
