A Traffic Report Every Five Minutes
That's what drive-time commuters will hear on CBS's All News 99.1, WNEW-FM in Washington, DC. The station is doubling the number of traffic reports during morning and evening rush hours. PD Robert Sanchez says “Increasing our focus on traffic information during these critical hours means WNEW listeners will get updates several minutes before it’s available anywhere else on the radio.” A recent TTI Urban Mobility Report listed Washington, D.C. as among the most congested city in the U.S. with yearly delays per auto commuter at 67 hours.

Just curious to know how WNEW is doing with the only signal that is well-placed for both Baltimore and D.C. — but isn't especially strong in either metro. (It's in Bowie, MD, halfway to Annapolis, in the center of this map here: http://goo.gl/maps/KiM5B) WTOP and nearly every other DC station transmits from deep inside the District. This mixed advantage should actually be good for car radios, which tend to have much better reception than home radios. And traffic has always been big on 'TOP.
