Re: Boston TV firsts

My understanding, with very little to back it up, was that WRTB 
was granted a construction permit, but never built it, and sold it
to the WGBH-FM folks (or, I should say, the WGBH(FM) folks) in
1955.  I also heard that WTAG held a CP for WTAG-TV Worcester on
channel 5 in the early '50s, and that it was the expiration of
that CP that started the horse race for Channel 5 Boston that took
20+ years to resolve.
