Forgot to mention - the deal for the Green Bay station, which was not 
WBAY but WFRV (and which also included satellite station WJMN-TV in 
Escanaba, MI) didn't come along until after the ownership caps were 
raised, either to 12/12/12 or 24/24/24. It wasn't so much that CBS 
desperately wanted a Green Bay affiliate - it was that WFRV/WJMN came as 
a package with WCCO in Minneapolis, which CBS did very much want to own.

CBS bought WFRV/WJMN in 1992 and sold it to Liberty Media in 2007.
