Actually, that's not surprising, since it was the TV tower that was blown down.  The radio 
towers in Hull weren't.  I was in Albany at the time, but I believe I've heard from others that 
WBZ-TV was knocked off the air for awhile, until they could set up a temporary transmission. 
 I've heard variously that they transmitted temporarily from the top of the auxiliary radio tower 
at Soldiers Field Road or from the Channel 7 tower, which was somewhere around Medford 
or Malden at the time.
