WNAC-TV commenced operation just 12 days after WBZ-TV began  operation.  I 
wonder know if there was as much hype,  ballyhoo, etc. associated with that 
sign-on as there was with  WBZ-TV.
I'm sure must have been a competition between the  two stations to be 
first.  I know that WNAC did not construct a new  building for TV as WBZ did -- 
you would have figured that would have given WNAC  a leg up in the 
competition.  Did WBZ's affiliation with NBC/RCA give then  an advantage in obtaining 
equipment?  Also, was Jean Shepard still the  owner when TV operations 
began?  I'm curious to know if anyone has any  information on this subject.
