In spite of all the baseless rumors that The SCORE 670 would appear on 104.3FM, CBS never had plans to do it. It was against their interests for cluster programming and revenue. With Entercom at the helm, that could be totally different now. The high cost of programming music formats and the shrinking commercial offerings on the FM dial could force more spoken word formats on the FM band.
But AM reception and listener numbers are awesome in Chicago. This has prevented the FM Sports to appear. If Merlin's disaster hadn't appeared in Chicago, AM780 simulcast would have been a lot further down the road than what it ended up being.
