I've read elsewhere that WBUR is requesting new call letters for WMVY, the Martha's Vineyard station the just purchased.
After FCC approval of the sale, the station's calls will be WBUA. Sounds like one of Jim Cramer's outbursts on CNBC.
Several years ago, Boston University owned channel 68 in Boston using the call letters WABU-TV; it was even the
flagship station for the Red Sox at the time. Hard to believe. Maybe they should have kept it, made it non-commercial
using the call letters WBUR-TV and REALLY given WGBH agita.
