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.
