WLLZ picture looks like a bad train wreck! Can't watch that channel as it looks terribly squished and grainy.

I feel that 12 and 26 will simulcast some, if not all, programming (and subchannels) when 12 converts. 12 and 26 don't overlap that much contour-wise

Congratulations are in order for Mr. Wotila; this sounds like a nice expansion opportunity for him. I wonder if 12 & 26 will merge into one region-wide station or if the two stations will remain separate brands.

Can anyone answer if TV-12 is still broadcasting in analog? If so, I suspect Wotila will convert it to HD with time.


Radio's downfall has been under-investing in its core competency and becoming distracted by delusions of grandeur by thinking development of a half-assed national digital strategy will somehow put it on par with the Facebooks and Googles of the world.
