WTRI-TV was on channel 35. It originally was a nominal CBS affiliate 
(as WTRY radio was a CBS affiliate).  It went off when CBS shifted 
its affiliation to channel 41.  Somewhere around that same time WROW 
radio became the CBS radio affiliate.  I don't know if there was any 
connection.  During all of this, WRGB, nominally an NBC affiliate, 
carried a lot of programs from CBS, ABC, and DuMont as well.  A year 
or so later WTRI returned to the air as a full ABC affiliate, at 
which time WCDA, etc. became a full CBS affiliate and WRGB became a 
full NBC affiliate.
