  1. Another shoe has to be dropping. It would be insane for FedMed to literally walk away from a contract with ESPN Radio that just took effect a month ago.

    I wouldn’t be shocked to see the “MNC” talk simulcast broken up, with WTRC-FM becoming “ESPN 95.3” and the talk format solely on the AM dial.
