^I was expecting the MyNetworkTV "syndicated programming service" would end up on a subchannel of WSYM, given that MNT is co-owned with Fox. As for the syndicated programming (both first-run and off-network repeats) formerly held by WHTV, that's a whole 'nother question entirely (though I believe Jerry Springer was picked up by WLAJ's CW subchannel, and it's possible that whatever syndicated fare hasn't since been taken over by competing stations might very well end up on the new 47.4).
Isn't it nice how deregulation has brought us such oversized and dangerously overleveraged broadcast owners? (Yes, I'm looking at YOU, Sinclair, Nexstar, Cume-U-Less, and iFart!)

47.4 is apparently on the air, running the FOX Fall Preview show. Assuming they're testing.

Edit: They're running it on a loop, so obviously in test mode.
