I remember WROW being owned by a company called Hudson Valley 
Broadcasting.  Was that Goldman?

Around 1955 or so, WROW-TV became WCDA, with a sattelite station on 
channel 29 called WCDB.  So technically, it wasn't WROW-TV that moved to 
channel 10, it was WCDA-WCDB that moved and became WTEN.  I wasn't in 
Albany by that time.  I sure would have liked to see the promotion for 
that move.

After WMGT 19 on Mount Graylock, in Massachusetts, lost its tower in a 
storm, they re-built and became WCDC, which I believe they still are, 
relaying WTEN as they used to relay WCDA-WCDB.
