It became WHDH-TV under Mugar, when Mugar bought WHDH radio, sometime around 1989 or 
1990 or thereabouts.

At the time, I recalled a cartoon which I drew at the time of the Channel 5 changeover in 1972. I 
thought the WCVB "5"logo looked rather like an archery target.  I drew the "5" logo with an arrow in 
the bulls-eye, with the caption "WHDH-TV shall rise again!"

Well, it did, sort of!
