None whatsoever, of course.

Traditionally, at least in my days at WBZ, TV sales and radio sales were 
separate entities, and my recollection was that it was not uncommon to 
see spots for other commercial radio stations on WBZ-TV, or to hear 
spots for other commercial TV stations on WBZ radio. Their money was 
green, after all.
