Close enough considering where Pax Boston is headed...
A few months ago they were discussing about moving their
entire operation into the former Ground Round building next
to WBZ studios on Soldiers Field Road. I know that there was
lots of extensive renovation work to be done at that site but
I am not sure if the Pax got the deal done....

On a related note : The entire Pax-NBC alliance is slowly becoming
a PR nightmare. During Fall TV season presentation last week,
Bob Wright announced that the plan to rebroadcast of the Nightly News
on Pax-owned stations is "stalled"(ie, not going to happen)....NBC
will now try to rebroadcast the local 6 and 11 o'clock newscasts from
its 11 o+o's on the Pax-owned local stations. So far, Miami is the only
market where this is happening. The other 10, including NYC, are still
talking about it....
