WYCN-CD

WYCN-CD, virtual channel 15 (UHF digital channel 43), is a Class A television station serving Boston, Massachusetts, United States that is licensed to Nashua, New Hampshire. It is a satellite of Boston-licensed low-powered NBC owned-and-operated station WBTS-LD (channel 8) that is owned by the NBC Owned Television Stations subsidiary of NBCUniversal (itself a subsidiary of Comcast), and is also sister to Merrimack, New Hampshire-licensed Telemundo owned-and-operated station WNEU (channel 60). WBTS and WNEU share studios with co-owned regional cable news channel New England Cable News (NECN) on Wells Avenue in Newton.

Through a channel sharing arrangement, WYCN shares transmitter facilities with Boston-licensed full-power PBS member station WGBX-TV (channel 44) on Cedar Street in Needham, on a tower also used by several other TV and radio stations. This ensures complete reception across the Boston television market.

History

The station signed on in 1988[1] as W13BG[2] on channel 13 in Nashua.[1] It changed its call letters to WYCN-LP on April 8, 1996.[2] Originally owned by Center Broadcasting Corporation of New Hampshire, the station aired local community programming for the Nashua era, with FamilyNet airing for most of the day. Its analog-era tower was located on the Rivier University campus between two above-ground reservoirs and Brassard Hall, with studios located in Memorial Hall on the same campus.[3]

WYCN-LP was nearly dropped by Harron Cable on its Nashua-area systems in October 1999 to accommodate a must-carry request by WMFP (channel 62),[4] a move that could have led to the closure of channel 13[5] even though its carriage on MediaOne in Nashua itself was not affected.[4] Its carriage was ultimately continued by Adelphia Communications following its purchase of Harron,[6] though the station was dropped for a time in 2000 after an additional must-carry request, from WYDN (channel 48), while Adelphia rebuilt the systems.[7]

WYCN-LP, along with three co-owned translators in Nashua, Manchester, and Concord, was sold by Center Broadcasting Corporation of New Hampshire to New Hampshire 1 Network, a company controlled by William H. Binnie, in 2010.[8] The deal was completed January 3, 2012;[9] in the meantime, Binnie would also acquire WBIN-TV (channel 50, now WWJE-DT) in Derry. As a result of the sale, much of WYCN's community programming, including aldermatic debates, was discontinued.[10] In December 2012, the station's studios moved from Rivier University to a location shared with sister station WFNQ (106.3 FM).[11]

New Hampshire 1 Network filed to sell WYCN-LP to OTA Broadcasting, a company controlled by Michael Dell's MSD Capital, on January 14, 2013; the three translators were not included in the deal,[12] and began to simulcast WBIN-TV. Operation of WYCN continued to be handled by New Hampshire 1.[13] At the time of the sale, WYCN was affiliated with My Family TV.[14] The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved the sale on March 22,[15] and it was completed on May 20.[16]

WYCN-LP resumed producing local programming soon after the sale to OTA Broadcasting; however, in June 2013, Comcast (successor to both Harron/Adelphia and MediaOne) informed the station that it would be dropped from its lineup as of August 15 due to the earlier cessation of local programming, as well as its limited broadcast reach and continued analog broadcasting (even though WYCN had a construction permit to convert to digital operations and increase its broadcast range).[17][18][19][20] Comcast subsequently pushed back the date of the removal to September 3, despite protests from viewers, politicians, and Nashua's public access station.[21] Due to its low power, WYCN's analog signal reached only portions of Nashua, its city of license. In contrast, its digital signal was expected to reach Manchester and Boston. The digital facility was planned to sign on by December 2013,[22] but was not licensed by the FCC until October 23, 2014. Their digital transmitter was located 625 feet (0.191 km) off Trigate Road in rural Hudson, southeast of Nashua.

Spectrum reallocation, sale to NBC

WYCN-CD sold its frequency rights as part of the FCC's spectrum auction for $80.4 million;[23] in the auction, the station indicated that it would continue operations through a post-auction channel sharing agreement.[24] On October 18, 2017, OTA Broadcasting entered into a channel sharing agreement with WGBX-TV (channel 44); under the terms of the agreement, channel sharing operations could not begin until the WYCN-CD license was acquired by NBCUniversal.[25] NBC agreed to purchase WYCN-CD the same day.[26] In December 2017, the station announced on its website that it would "cease broadcasting on its current frequency on January 16, 2018 and begin broadcasting NBC Boston on a new frequency."[27] As WYCN's signal overlaps with WGME-TV in Portland, Maine, which also uses virtual channel 13, WYCN began using virtual channel 15 following the commencement of channel sharing, as WGME's post-auction physical channel will be 15 (WGME's pre-auction channel, 38, is not available to WYCN as virtual channel 38 is assigned to CBS-owned MyNetworkTV affiliate WSBK-TV).[28] The sale to NBC was completed on January 18, 2018;[29] the station began channel sharing with WGBX the same day. At the time of transition, it was affiliated with Heroes & Icons, duplicating the same affiliation held by WSBK-DT2 in the market; that station continues to carry H&I, though the network lost the low channel number cable carriage it held with WYCN-CD.

15.1 1080i 16:9 WYCN-CD Simulcast of WBTS-LD / NBC
15.2 480i Cozi Simulcast of WBTS-LD3 / Cozi TV

Analog-to-digital conversion

WYCN-CD shut down its analog signal, over VHF channel 13, on October 23, 2014. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 36. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers displayed the station's virtual channel as its former VHF analog channel 13 prior to January 2018.

WBTS-LD

WBTS-LD, virtual channel 8 (UHF digital channel 46), is a low-powered NBC owned-and-operated television station licensed to Boston, Massachusetts, United States. Owned by the NBC Owned Television Stations (NBCOTS) subsidiary of NBCUniversal (itself a subsidiary of Comcast), it is sister to Merrimack, New Hampshire-licensed Telemundo owned-and-operated station WNEU (channel 60). The two stations share studios with co-owned regional cable news channel New England Cable News (NECN) on Wells Avenue in Newton; WBTS-LD's transmitter is located in Needham.

The station was founded in 1995 as W32AY by the Spanish-language television network Telemundo (which was then under separate ownership). Later, as WTMU-LP, it carried that network as a translator of WNEU, whose signal did not reach the entire city of Boston.

On January 7, 2016, NBCOTS President Valari Staab confirmed that NBC had declined to renew its affiliation with Boston-based WHDH (channel 7), and that it planned to launch an owned-and-operated outlet to be known as NBC Boston on January 1, 2017. At the time, NBC did not announce which station(s) would be used to carry the new service over-the-air, and WHDH's owner Sunbeam Television sued NBCUniversal under the presumption that it planned to only use WNEU, contending that doing so would have considerably reduced the ability of viewers to receive the network over the air in Boston, thus bolstering the cable services provided by NBC's parent company Comcast in the area.

On August 31, 2016, NBCUniversal filed to acquire the low-power station from its owner ZGS Communications. The following month, ZGS filed a request to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to upgrade the station to a digital signal. NBC later announced that the station, renamed WBTS-LD, would serve as the main station of the NBC Boston service as part of a simulcast with WNEU-DT2 (virtual channel 60.2). Until April 1, 2018, NBC also leased a subchannel of WMFP (virtual channel 60.5) in Lawrence, Massachusetts to provide an alternate full-power signal for viewers in the Boston area. On January 18, 2018, it started an additional transmission service in the Boston area through a channel sharing agreement with PBS member station WGBX-TV (channel 44), under the license of WYCN-CD.

WBTS-LD is carried on channel 10 by most local cable television providers; hence the station's on-air branding (since 2018) as NBC 10 Boston.

WEMJ

WEMJ (1490 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a top 40/CHR format. Licensed to Laconia, New Hampshire, United States, the station is owned by Binnie Media and licensed to WBIN Media Co., Inc.

WEMJ, along with 16 other stations in northern New England formerly owned by Nassau Broadcasting Partners, was purchased at bankruptcy auction by WBIN Media Company, a company controlled by Bill Binnie, on May 22, 2012. Binnie already owned WBIN-TV in Derry and WYCN-CD in Nashua. The deal was completed on November 30, 2012. In March 2016, WEMJ began a simulcast on W297BS (107.3 FM, referred to as "WEMJ-FM" by the New Hampshire Association of Broadcasters) and updated their branding to reflect this new over-the-air listening option.On May 24, 2019, WEMJ changed formats from news/talk to a simulcast of top 40/CHR-formatted 105.5 WJYY, which is licensed to Concord and serves the Manchester area.

WGBX-TV

WGBX-TV, virtual channel 44 (UHF digital channel 43), is a Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) member television station licensed Boston, Massachusetts, United States. Owned by the WGBH Educational Foundation, it is sister to fellow PBS member station and company flagship WGBH-TV (channel 2), Springfield, Massachusetts-based PBS member WGBY-TV (channel 57), Boston-area public radio stations WGBH (89.7 FM) and WCRB (99.5 FM), and WCAI radio (and satellites WZAI and WNAN) on Cape Cod. WGBX-TV, WGBH-TV and the WGBH and WCRB radio stations share studios on Guest Street in northwest Boston's Brighton neighborhood; WGBX-TV's transmitter is located on Cedar Street (southwest of I-95/MA 128) in Needham, Massachusetts, which is shared with sister station WGBH-TV as well as WBZ-TV, WCVB-TV, WBTS-LD and WSBK-TV.

The X in WGBX's callsign stands for "eXperimental", as WGBX (more primarily in the 1970s) was home to programming that was given a trial run on the lower-rated UHF signal before possibly moving onto the more-established WGBH-TV. Such Eastern Educational Network imports from the United Kingdom as Doctor Who were seen first or more frequently on WGBX, and one late 1970s local "nightclub"-style variety show, Club 44, proved popular enough to be moved over to WGBH and retitled The Club. The station airs PBS programs that are not aired by WGBH-TV as well as additional supplemental programming. Reruns of the previous night's programming either from WGBH-TV or from WGBX-TV itself also makes up part of channel 44's programming schedule.

WGBX also carries most of the national digital subchannel networks (except for World) which are managed by the WGBH Educational Foundation (along with an additional station, as described below); this enables WGBH to maintain a high-bitrate 1080i high definition picture resolution on its main channel 2 signal, with little loss in visual quality.
