    This from All Access:

    -----------Westwood One To Cease Distribution, Production Of NBC News Radio On December 15th-----------

    WESTWOOD ONE is discontinuing production and distribution of NBC NEWS RADIO as of DECEMBER 15th at midnight ET.

    The syndicator informed affiliates TODAY (10/15) that WESTWOOD ONE NEWS, the white-label news service being produced by CNN, will be fed on the satellite channels being used for NBC NEWS RADIO for affiliates moving to the new service from NBC.

    Locally NBC News Radio is heard on AM 860 KPAM.

    I'm sorry. Are you saying that there's a separate NBC Radio news network that's being discontinued or the NBC Radio Network, no longer the property of NBC but always owned by someone, is going away, after being on the air since 1926?
