WILD on 97.7, gospel on 1090

The confusion over call letters brings up a question. Many TV stations that
I know of have dropped the "-TV" suffix since the stations' parent companies
sold off their sister radio stations. Hence, what used to be WCSH-TV in
Portland is now referred to simply as WCSH, WMUR-TV in Manchester as WMUR,
and so forth. This is a fairly recent trend. Have the suffixes actually
been legally eliminated in most cases, or are the stations not using them in
their IDs just for convenience's sake?
