I guess you've got to pick somebody who is best known for his/her TV
work, since people who worked mostly in Radio are not likely to be
recognized by potential buyers. Who is the best-known local TV
personality of the last 60+ years? Presumably, it would be someone
with great longevity. Natalie and Chet, maybe?

A while back, somebody commented that Sesame St is not really a local
Boston show. It's no news to anybody that Sesame St is seen in every
major market in the US and probably just about every major market in
the world. But doesn't the show have Boston roots? I mean, isn't it
produced by WGBH? If so, I would pick a Muppet--probably Kermit, maybe
Ms Piggy or maybe the two of them.
