Well I suppose it's possible that his contract with CC was that they 
will change the call letters, and that would no doubt be a binding 
contract provision, but that doesn't stop anyone else from getting the 
call letters.

That was part of the story of Ted Turner's arrangement with WTBS/WMBR.  
There was at least part of the consideration that they would only get 
if, after their call-letter change, he was able to get the FCC to assign 
the WTBS call letters to him.  There was no guarantee.
