Are there radio feeds that carry television signals, or simulateneous news feeds for television news? I live in the NYC area and don't have access to a TV, but want to hear the Condoleeza Rice testimony this morning... NPR's the only radio station I can find that actually lists its programming news schedule, and the ABC affiliate in New York is conservative talk radio, so I doubt they'll have it. Not just for this specific event, but generally, do news networks carry radio feeds still? Did they ever?
