This is certainly a definitive history, as far as it goes.  It leaves the 
television stations, WNBT and WCBW.  I believe that WNBT kept those call 
letters until it became WRCA-TV in the early 50s, and eventually became 
WNBC-TV sometime in the 60s, along with corresponding changes in the call 
letters of its sister radio stations.  But when did WCBW become WCBS-TV?
