The WLLH tower on the roof of the Giant Store building at 4 Broadway, corner of Dutton Street was taken down in 1986 after both WLLH & WSSH moved their studios, WSSH as mentioned to Woburn and WLLH moved to studios in the newly built Lowell Hilton hotel, which later became the Sheraton Inn Riverfront. Then they moved to 44 Church Street for the last few years of Arnold Lerner’s ownership. WXPO studios were on Dutton near Market, just a block away from the Giant Store. I knew about the RF issues that wreaked havoc with WXPO’s cameras but didn’t know that CBS had RF issues at the Ed Sullivan Theater. How did CBS get around that?
