NBCU Prepping For Affiliate Move In Boston

Boston television is headed for a seismic shakeup in 2017, when NBC programming moves from WHDH to NBC-owned Telemundo affiliate WNEU — and NBCUniversal is already assembling a news team that includes just-departed WHDH weatherman Pete Bouchard. According to a source with knowledge of the deal, NBC­U already has informed WHDH owner Sunbeam Television that it will not be renewing the station’s NBC affiliation when its contract runs out at the end of next year.
