This could be a “Good news, Bad news” story, but KDKA 1020 has flipped on the HD Radio switch as of last week according to While the station may sound good during the day, the true test will be at night when the station is hashed out in outlying areas by CBS sister stations WBZ 1030 in Boston and WINS 1010 in New York City. The HD Radio issue has been a hot topic among those who are for and against it on the AM dial. A lot of stations on any AM radio are hashed out by a sideband HD AM station like the ones I mentioned. KD is now the second AM station to go HD, the other in the area is ESPN Radio affiliate WEAE 1250.
