    and near automation of radio is the reason for a piece of one of the quotes in this piece:

    The company operates 314 stations in 59 markets, primarily in small to midsize cities. Through its private-equity partnership, the company operates an additional 33 stations in larger cities such as Atlanta and San Francisco.
    I can still recognize local voices, even in local talk radio, in my metro area. Some have been around for decades. I don't get the impression that holds for most of the smaller cities, towns and rural areas that make up red state heartland. They are almost entirely on automated repeater broadcast from these networks. Is that correct?
