Good News Station? -AM, FM, Satellite, doesn't Matter!
AM radio looks like it's on it's way out. More and more AM stations are going dark. This is because there are so many superior choices out there.
I do believe that if there is a reliable news station, that is news all the time, it could survive in a changing radio market.
In 2012 when Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey, we lost power for more than a week. We had no access to any news in the outside world. I relied totally on 1010 WINS, the news station in New York City. They provided me all the information I needed during this very trying time. It didn't matter that WINS was an AM station, they were a consistent, reliable resource to us during this period. Today WINS is one of the top stations in New York City. Kudos to them .
