There is a cluster that is about 65 miles away from me and 3 of the 4 AM stations the guy owns dont have talk or sportsOf course no one will switch to AM. They just want to carry talk and sports.
540 WXYG "The Goat"...Album Rock...and I know Radio will be proud. They broadcast in AM Stereo
660 WBHR Sports (ESPN)
800 WVAL Classic Country (locally done)
1010 WMIN Big Band/Swing
Now while 540 & 1010 do have FM translators (106.5 & 107.3) they only cover the St Cloud "metro" area (which is 4 towns...St Cloud, Sartell, Sauk Rapids, Waite Park) so outside of that area the AM works great.
