    More content that an audience smaller than the small audience the main station attracts would listen to? Not much of an incentive.

    HD is a pretty small market. Not many cars have HD receivers built in. I'm not sure this is ever going to change unless most automakers put HD receivers in most cars.

    Who has an HD Radio to listen to any of it on? It's an obsolete, failed technology that's been superseded by internet streaming (see also: Sirius/XM Satellite Radio).

    My car came with HD standard. So that's easy. The technology isn't any more obsolete than AM or FM.

    Sirius is fine for people who want to pay an extra monthly bill. That's not me.

    Seems that the only people complaining about HD are DXers or people with some attachment to a fringe signal not targeted toward their market. That can't be more than 5 percent (and even that might be generous) of the total audience in a given market. I have two HD2s that I regularly listen to. They're on 92.5 and 102.9. If there was anything on 92,3, 92.7, 102.7 or 103.1 that I used to receive before those stations turned on their HD units, I have no recollection of ever listening to it.

    WGN Radio hasn't entered the HD either

    Hubbard really is not big into HD sub programming. 100.3 had a few HD-2 formats under Bonneville but it had little effort. CBS-Entercom is big with HD-2, HD-3 and even HD-4 out east but not here. No idea why.
