Are KNX/KFWB in play?

East Coast website reports radio biz talk that CBS may be looking to swap its AM news stations in Los Angeles — KNX 1070 and KFWB 980 — in order to obtain another FM station here. (Apparently KSWD 100.3, part of Bonneville International, the LDS Church-owned Utah company, though the site calls it KNSD.) Said swap, if it's under consideration, would be part of a strategy by Bonneville to add a station in Washington, D.C.

Also in radio: Readers of L.A. have voted Bill Handel the top Los Angeles radio personality.
