CBS never had intentions to take 670 to FM. It would have cut their market billing too much. As I keep pounding on here, market billing is the goal, not individual stations.
CBS was running one station short in the cluster, but the revenue from Newsradio and saved overhead is enough to offset it. 2 stations simulcasting would be unsustainable.
Furthermore, Merlin was NEVER a threat to The Score. The Score and AM 1000 had all the teams lined up and locked in. Merlin wound have never been able to line up sports teams. They had no $$$$ or negotiating skills. At the end it would have been the same fate as iNews.
