WIND 560 AM just switched (as of Nov. 1) from Spanish language broadcasting to a talk format (in English). I believe this was part of a swap of stations, so an FM station is now converting over to Spanish language broadcasting with a change in format. (WIND was an oldies station, IIRC, and the new FM station will not have this format.) This raises a couple of questions.

First, could WIND be a competitor for broadcasting the Sox after the coming year?

Second, a few years ago, WIND was the Spanish language outlet for the Sox. I don't know which station (if any) was the outlet last year. With a new FM Spannish language station, how does this affect the Sox programming in that language.

Highly unlikely for many reasons. Isn't this going to be a religous talk station, anyway?

No, it is conservative talk -- mostly (if not all) syndicated shows. But Feder's column last week indicated that they might be in the running for the Don Wade and Roma Show (http://www.suntimes.com/output/feder/cst-fin-feder291.html) that was on WLS. That would take significant investment.
