Never heard about that rule. It sure did not exist in 1971 when CHQM pre-recorded the FM Newscasts to avoid the simulcasting rules and still deliver live Newscasts on AM.
Admittedly, the FM Newscasts were only about 10 minutes old when they were aired.
Around the turn of the century, I remember when CNN Headline News started recording their Newscasts, splitting them up into separate stories, and repeatedly airing them, story by story, having the Anchor break in with any updates or new stories that were again recorded and replayed from then on.
I forget which, but, a few years ago, I heard All News radio stations in Western Canada re-running Newscasts during the all night period.
