Well, I guess Fox could operate WLVI from the WFXT facilities, but I 
don't know if Fox would want to operate a CW affiliate, or even if 
they're allowed to.

I don't see where NBC couldn't also own/operate WLVI, as CBS 
owns/operates WBZ and WSBK.  But I don't think they would want to.

In any case it probably wouldn't be good for those of us who work here.
