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!
