WNAC became WRKO in March 1967.  It was RKO General's decision to close down
the Yankee Network at the time of the format/call change, probably because
its programming was incompatible with what the management had in mind for
WRKO.  (Do you remember the days when it was rare for Top 40 stations to be
CBS affiliates?  Same thing.)
