I am guessing that when CBS first leased WEEI from Edison before buying it the station had the second strongest signal in the city - WHDH and WLAW had yet to upgrade.

Yes, plus NBC had WJAS in Pittsburgh and ABC had KABC in LA.   

Did CBS make a later bid for Channel 5 when it became apparent that the
Herald-Traveler was going to lose it?  -Doug
