Is WBZ the only TV and AM left in New England?

I was just thinking that there were a number of TV stations in New
England that also owned an AM.

They include channels 5 and 7 in Boston, 10 and 12 in Providence, 3 in
both Hartford and Burlington, 6 and 13 in Portland, 40 in Springfield,
5 in Bangor, 9 in Manchester and 8 in Presque Isle.

I think WBZ is the last one standing.

I don't believe 2 in Bangor ever had a radio outlet.

I didn't include 56 in Boston as they never shared call letters with
740 but I suppose you could count WTAO-TV from the 50's.

Did I miss anybody?

I also believe WWLP in Springfield may have been the first stand alone
TV station in NE.
