WCVB appears to be the only Boston TV station to have continuous blizzard coverage (since the Noon news yesterday) on their main channel. They aired ABC prime time programming on 5.2. WHDH stopped their coverage to air NBC's prime time, WFXT stopped their coverage to air Fox prime time, WBZ aired CBS prime time and continued it's storm coverage on WSBK between 8 & 11PM. 

On the radio side, all I know is WCAP Lowell had coverage and updates during the day, after 7PM the automated oldies aired as usual, this morning the Warren Shaw show is airing coverage and discussion of the storm. 

WCVB just reporting voluntary evacuations in Hull, with the National Guard assisting in advance of the upcoming high tide (10AM). Of course WBZ radio's main transmitter is in Hull. Hopefully no major flooding will affect people or property (including BZ's TX) there.
