Is WBTS the New NBC Boston?

By Chris Ariens 

A TVSpy emailer tipped us off to a Bizapedia page that gives some intriguing details about what could be NBC’s new station in the Boston market.

As we’ve been reporting, WHDH will lose its NBC affiliation effective Jan. 1. In the meantime, NBC has been staffing up NECN, the NBC-owned cable news channel, which will almost certainly make up much of the news staff of the new NBC Boston.

The Bizapedia page lists WBTS Television LLC as a Massachusetts company formed on July 13, 2016. The two principals listed are both Comcast executives based in New York, while the LLC’s principal address is in Universal City, CA, NBCU’s West Coast HQ.

While WBTS may be the call letters (or simply what NBCU is calling this LLC), what’s still not known is where Boston viewers can find NBC programming starting in less than four months.
