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

Yes, 570 and 980 switched I would say about 10 years ago. That is when WRC
became WWRC down at 570, and WTEM moved to 980, however they soon dropped
the WTEM, and just went with SportsTalk 980, though Tony Kornhesier refused
to do it, and always said WTEM, so his sports flash guy would always jump in
and say SportsTalk 980 going into break.

Since Red Zebra bought the outfit, the on-air name is now ESPN 980, though
the calls remain WTEM
