As I live in Maine, the only Boston TV station I receive is WSBK (which I appreciate because of the WBZ-TV 8 PM newscasts). I don’t know much about what else is going on with regard to Boston TV. I do know that “NBC 10” WBTS’s local newscasts have barely made a dent in the local ratings; how has WHDH been doing since it severed ties with NBC? I can’t imagine a completely independent station, however large, being very successful “going it alone” with local newscasts, game shows, and sitcom reruns after having been a network affiliate for nearly 70 years. KRON in San Francisco has had a struggle since losing NBC a decade or so ago.
