Really?  I don't remember seeing that.

What I do remember is, at some point before channel 56 returned to 
the air as WKBG-TV, seeing some ads in the Globe announcing its 
imminent return, with the call letters WXHR-TV.

I believe that the WXHR call letters were on all of the stations by 
the time they were sold to Kaiser-Globe.  At least, the AM and were 
both WXHR by then, since they were simulcasting the WXHR classical 
music programming.
