Surely that's for his nationally-syndicated TV work, not for anything
he did in Boston.  If you include national shows, the most famous
would have to be Leno or Conan -- but neither of them is known for
anything they did while in Boston.  (I don't think either was ever on
any local broadcast here.)

Not being a native Bostonian, I couldn't comment on who *would* fit.
(The famous broadcast personalities of my youth, many of them
recognizable from photographs, would be Bird Berdan, Marselis Parsons,
Ernie Farrar, Louie Manno and Jim Condon, and Ken Squier.  I suspect
the Arcadia book on Burlington/Plattsburgh broadcasting history is a
long way from being published.)
