Has the end of a broadcast era arrived? More EV
manufacturers are leaving AM radio out of their electric
vehicles -- their motors interfere with AM signal reception. Now,
lawmakers on Capitol Hill want to require automakers to keep AM
radio in the dash with new legislation.

Their guest is our producer, Todd Manley, the former VP of Content at WGN Radio. For over a decade, Manley has been a proponent of streaming AM programming through digital channels.
