Maybe 1090 am WBAL Baltimore.  When I lived in NY I was able to pick up WTMJ Milwaukee. WBAL carries well across the eastern half of US and Baltimore is closer to Milwaukee than NYC.  The other "close" 50k watt night timer on 1090 am is KAAY out of Little Rock.  Next time you receive it, you can match reception to online stream.
