WHDH, channel 7, is an independent television station located in Boston, Massachusetts. WHDH is owned by Sunbeam Television, and operates as part of a duopoly with CW affiliate WLVI (channel 56). The two stations share studio facilities located at Bulfinch Place, near Government Center in downtown Boston; WHDH’s transmitter is located in Newton, Massachusetts. From 1982 to 1995, WHDH was Boston’s CBS affiliate. On January 2, 1995, WHDH switched to NBC, after CBS moved to WBZ-TV by virtue of a group-wide affiliation deal with its owner, Westinghouse Broadcasting. On January 1, 2017, WHDH lost NBC to a newly-formed owned-and-operated station, WBTS-LD; the station now operates as a news-intensive independent station.
