WBZ radio leaving Soldiers Field Road

“Are the call letters going to change? Right now WBZ, WBZ-FM, and WBZ-(TV? DT?) are all owned by different entities. Which one gets to keep the call sign?”
It would appear to be a moot point. We’re only a few months away from the one-year anniversary of the ownership changes, and apparently CBS hasn’t yet demanded that iHeart and Beasley request different call signs.
IIRC CBS gets the prize, since their predecessor Westinghouse had the call sign the longest. If they don’t object (and issue that non-objection to iHeart and Beasley in written form) no changes are necessary.
