  1. It seems to me that WLPA-1400 would only simulcast WLPA-92.7 for a short period, to transition it’s audience to FM, before flipping the AM to something else.

    I would think the new standard format for the AM will likely be automated or syndicated, although if there’s one person whose full-time job will be programming the AM as a mostly-auto,mated format, he/she might do a live drive-time show.
