IIRC CBS bought half interest in the channel 2 license but didn't put it on the 
air because they wanted to fight for the color standard first. By the time that 
battle was over and lost the channel 2 license was assigned to educational TV 
and channel 5 was up for grabs. Channel 2 was assigned to Lexington, probably 
under the theory that they would concentrate on that immediate area more than 
Boston itself.
