I think WPVI Philadelphia remains on Channel 6 but, unlike WRGB, not
by its own choice.

I can out-curmudgeon that.  I'll bet they keep "CBS6" and change the
call letters!  What they SHOULD change is their RF channel as they are
one of the few (the only?) station still on Channel 6 (not counting
"Hot 97").  They'd be doing viewers a favor by decamping the Lo-V
band, but if they are truly the "horizontal axis of evil" they'll stay
put out of spite, just to prevent FM band expansion.

Now get off my lawn!
