That is the biggest fear we at Channel 7 have about the possibility 
of NBC buying WHDH, in that they would move Master Control to New 
York and we would all get laid off.

Of course, there would be the additional complication that Sunbeam 
also owns and operates, from the same facilities, WLVI.  I doubt NBC 
would want WLVI, so it would need to be sold off separately, if 
anyone even wants them at this point.  While Ansin still owns the old 
WLVI building on Morrissey Blvd., it has been essentially gutted so 
if a buyer wanted to use that building for it's facility they would 
have to start from scratch.
