Yes, the returns are predominately concerning the conglomerate, but there are a number of listings shown for the REAL clear channel stations as well.


Some great info on the history aspect  too.

That is likely Clear Channel Broadcasting, a big conglomerate.   

Clears as we used to know then are gone.

With the "FM filter" the K3 will do 4.2 KHz x 2 - about 8.5 KHz at
RF represents 4.25 KHz maximum audio response (DSB). With the "AM"
filter (6 KHz) you would be limited to ~ 3 KHz x 2 (double sideband).

4.2 KHz is not an issue with modern AM broadcast in the US. Very
few stations do more than 5 KHz audio due to all the noise from
the digital stations (and it's certainly not necessary for all the
talk, religious and sports formats ). The noise has gotten bad
enough that I can no longer hear many of the old "clear channel"
stations that used to be beacons (particularly at night) 20 years
or so ago.
