"...word in TV land is that Channel 7 owner Ed Ansin is making a play
to buy Channel 56 from the Tribune Co. Leading us to ask why, oh why,
does Ed - whose main holdings are in Florida - want to add to his
stable of Boston stations?
    There's a rather fascinating answer, according to our spies.
    Seems Ansin is trying to do an end run around NBC because he fears
that the network honchos will buy WB56 themselves and move their
programming there when NBC's deal with Channel 7 expires."
