Re: Univision buys Hub 66 and other USAB stations...
Oh...well. It was nice while it lasted.....all
4 months of it. Boston needed a real Independent ever
since Channel 68 gave up the ghost. I thought that
Hub66 had a good chance of replacing the void (ever
since Channel 38 went UPN) in becoming a sports
powerhouse. This always seems to happen just as soon
as you get used to watching a particular TV station.
Financially, (IMHO) I do not think that Boston
market can handle yet another Spanish TV station.
We've already got WUNI/27 (UNI), WWDP/46 and WTMU/32
(Telemundo) all with excellent cable coverage taboot.
Oh, well. C'est le vie.
