That WNYP story sounds like something that would happen at a LPTV. Sounds like something WMNT-CD would do
I'm sure they're STILL at it!
You mean like switching to and from WMYD's signal whenever My Network programming airs?
For three days in January 2017 (15th, 16th, 19th) and one night in September 2017 (22nd), I managed to receive KDKA Pittsburgh from 202 miles away indoors!

Oh, I though you meant more like the sort of problems they often have where dead air just happens because they had no local ads lined up.

One time, I got WYZZ Peoria 330 miles away indoors clearly for 10 minutes on Dec 5, 2015

Doesn't surprise me if WGTE has to get it's PBS Kids feed from elsewhere, though looking at that guy's YouTube page, I'm highly doubtful of that, though I don't have the nerve to go check right now.

While I was up north I happened to catch how WNEM broadcasts the Michigan Lottery drawings...by directly simulcasting WDIV's feed. This is apparent when the screen suddenly changes resolutions and how the last frame of a commercial intended for WDIV almost always appears before the drawing intro. However, WNEM quickly cuts to the Wheel of Fortune intro during the closing of the drawings. This is currently the last remaining program that WNEM continues to directly simulcast WDIV for.

Do any other Michigan Lottery broadcasters simulcast WDIV during the drawings?

Surprised if that wasn't a standard elsewhere.

Surprised that they still had daily draws that were actually televised -- the Florida Lottery (whose draws were broadcast via satellite) ceased televised draws of daily games years ago -- they now only televise the big money games (such as Powerball, Mega Millions and Lotto).
