    Liberty Media's John Malone takes risky leap into satellite radio with Sirius investment

    Colorado Public Radio's still simulcasting on AM

    Shhh... CPR is still available at 1340 AM. Remember when Colorado Public Radio made such a big deal about moving its news-and-information service from 1340 AM to 90.1 FM this past July?
