In response to a previous question, NPR is available in New York City and
vicinity over WNYC-AM 820.  This is a simulcast of WNYC-FM 93.9.

When did they start simulcasting?  When I lived in the NYC area only a
year ago, WNYC-AM was talk all day, while WNYC-FM, with the exception of
ATC and (I think) Morning Edition, was all classical music.  With these
exceptions, the programming was quite distinct, with WNYC-AM carrying, for
example, a local talk show and NPR's "Talk of the Nation" on weekdays, and
APR's "Whadd'ya Know" on Saturdays, none of which were simulcast, or even
programmed at all (to the best of my knowledge) on WNYC-FM.
