I've noticed this when, occasionally, I've been in my car and tuned to 
WBZ at that hour. I was surprised because it reminded me of the old CBS 
sound of 50 years ago on WEEI.   It seemed to make sufficient sense to 
me, and I never realized it was the TV evening news.

I note that they've been simulcasting "60 minutes" on radio for years.
