    Probably CBSN Local.

    WBTS - Home of NBC Boston?

    This may be a reference to WCVB which is located across the highway from the new NBC building.

    Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)

    WABU, which was owned by Boston University, had rights to the Sox after TV38 gave them up due to network obligations to UPN.

    It replaced "Evening Magazine."

    Old Graphics That Still Look Great

    Completely agree that WBZ's package was amazing. I do think that KBCW's Nightbeat graphics package is a nice evolution:

    WHDH, "Independent" edition

    No. Professional sports rules here. High school is nothing like it is in the south. Even college sports are not as popular as elsewhere even for the higher-ed mecca that is Boston. (There are two exceptions, both specific events: The Beanpot hockey tournament in February and the Harvard-Yale football game in November.)

    CBS Evening News

    Isn't it recorded at 5pm? We're not talking hours in advance.

    WBTS - Home of NBC Boston?

    One interesting effect from the NBC affiliation switch is how other stations in the market will promote themselves. WBZ's entry plays up its heritage in the New England community: http://boston.cbslocal.com/2016/12/15/new-wbz-tv-legacy-promo-whos-who/

    WBTS - Home of NBC Boston?

    Not really. When the City sold the rights to an outside agency (Conventures), the broadcast rights disappeared, too. No station (including WBZ) covered Conventures' First Night last year.

    WBTS - Home of NBC Boston?

    Probably pushback from Congress. Accolades from the broadcasting industry.
