    iHeart on a TiVo, but a Cumulus station.

    They've had several ads start and then quickly stop for a different ad.

    Regardless of what is taking place, the first ad always seems to start late after another ad aired for a few seconds. I should report this.

    This reminds me of cable TV ad inserts years ago .Watching an out of area stations like WCBS,WABC,WNBC,ETC from NYC of Boston .They insert local ads during the ad breaks.Most of the time its was sloppy and clip a few seconds off going to a ad break and coming back to the show. The Syndex rule killed some of it with the syndie shows and just blanking out the channel altogether..

    For radio.I have not pay any attention with that lately.Stations that I do listen online airs everything that goes OTA .No insert ads there. ...

    I reported the problem to WNAM, and I did get a response saying yes, ads that are heard online are different from ads heard over the air. The problem has not been fixed and many of the commercials air for a few seconds and then get interrupted by the "correct" ad. You have to figure people who wanted to hear more from the wrong ad are disappointed when this happens.
