That's interesting, because when NBC Blue morphed into the Blue 
Network, in January 1942, WCOP was an affiliate, according to the 
newspapers. As you undoubtedly know, the Blue Network was officially 
re-named the American Broadcasting Company on 15 June 1945--  network 
executives of the Blue Network filed for the name change in late 
October 1944 but approval didn't come till a few months later.)  In 
1948, WCOP was still the ABC affiliate in Boston.
