WGY-FM?  Wasn't it WGFM?

How did Westinghouse get to call its Baltimore station WJZ-TV after WJZ in
New York became WABC?

I thought I read once that there was a college (Somewhere in Texas, I
believe) that had an AM station many years ago with a three-letter call
and, years later, put an FM on the air and got to use that three-letter
call with the -FM suffix.  I also remember when WMGM in New York got to
go back to the WHN call back in the 1960s.  Have the regulations changed
since then?
