    WLS-AM in Chicago is using a 25-Seven Audio Program Manager (ATM) to enhance its news/talk/information programming. The result, according to Senior Technical Producer Michael Garay, is increased listenership and local advertising. The station uses the device to hold off syndicated programs and newsfeeds, and it helps the station make flawless rejoins from breaks in syndicated shows. WLS also uses the unit to add local inventory to syndicated programs without having to miss any show content.
