WBZ, like WBBM has a large news staff. They are all news 5AM-8PM, with a lot of local talk at night and some on the weekends.
iHeart does not have a full cluster in Boston. This will change that. They have one AM station (1200 WXKS Newton) that was being leased to Bloomberg but Bloomberg went to Beasley and 1330 WRCA for FM reasons, so 1200 will need a new format.
iHeart's other AM station is 1430 WKOX will be spun off. It carries the Conservative Talk syndicated fare (Rush, Hannity, Beck, Levin, etc)
Guessing a lot of these shows will either move to 1200 or they'll be combined onto WRKO.
The biggest problem, figuring out to do with WBZ.
