Neither is WHBQ, FOX O&O. I would expect WNYW to be in HD though.

Fox as a network was late to the HD party to begin with, so it's not particularly surprising that their O&Os are behind the curve on HD news. In Phoenix, 3 of the 5 stations with news are HD and a fourth is planning to go live for fall sweeps. Not a peep out of the Fox O&O yet.

Detroit's Fox O&O just went HD a few months ago, after both of their competitors had been doing HD news for a long time.

KPRC-DT (NBC) in Houston is still in test mode, but is airing news in HD. That brings the market to three HD news stations:

KHOU-DT (CBS)
KTRK-DT (ABC)
KPRC-DT (NBC)

Reports are that KRIV-DT (FOX) is going to be throwing the HD switch soon.

Just tuned to KNTV (Bay Area NBC O&O) and they are broadcasting their 11pm in HD. They seem to be referring to themselves as "NBC Bay Area News" now instead of "NBC 11 News". I'm not sure if this started with the 11pm newscast as I did not watch the 5pm & 6pm. Its about time, seems like all the channels broadcast their newscasts in HD in the Bay Area now (kinda at least... KRON in SD 16:9).

yep we have 2 of our local news ch in HD. a bit of background info:

WAVY(NBC) & WVBT(Fox) are owned by Lin. the stations actually share the studio(a NICE new one!!-they just change the logo on the big screen behind the anchor desk for the Fox 10pm newscast) & news staff(the senior news anchors are at WAVY). same C.E. too(and an excellent one!!!)

PQ of the studio shots was A-One!! many props to C.E Les Garrenton & crew for all the hard work.

Yeah, FOX was the last network to go HD(I think it was 2003 or 2004(?)). But it seems surprising that they would not do an HD conversion when they did new sets/graphics. Most of the FOX O&O stations got new sets and graphics that all match(disturbingly close to FOX News-too so much for my taste). You would think HD would be a priority for #1 and #2 and even DC. Cleveland's FOX even has an HD chopper camera.

That may have something to do with the digital transition. I'm excited to see how stations will handle the changes in channel numbers. It's realistic to keep the "old analog" channel position alive with PSIP channel mapping(as they do now). Buit I wonder if anyone will change their channel numbers on air as well(especially higher UHF channels).

Plus with cable TV and HDTV services, having your channel(like ABC 5 on aactually on channel 5 on cable) is becoming something of the past. Our Time Warner system has the HD version of most channels on their actual OTA numbers(ie 405). But with many channels(higher UHF) it isn't possible so that city name branding works.

No kidding. Thanks for the news flash.

Audio sync is very slightly off during the news, haven't noticed it on other programs.

I live in Richmond, VA. There's no local news in HD whatsoever, nor are any syndicated shows in HD, due to lack of up to date equipment.

It's pretty disappointing, considering that Charlottesville (much smaller place) has HD news, and Hampton Roads now has it.

I caught the WGN news on HD for the first time this past Sunday. I also noticed this, but it is so slight that it is not distracting. WGN news in HD is the only one we have here in Champaign-Urbana, IL. I thought the picture quality was good.

The locals here haven't even addressed this yet. Given we are a fairly small market, it will probably be a while before we see the local news in HD.

Disappointed to see that like a lot of stations, they didn't invest in HD graphics, or HD weather. Too bad, because to me, that's what really makes the video "pop." That still leaves KTVU and KGO as the only Bay Area stations with HD graphics.

My local news KWWL which is NBC out of Waterloo, IA has not be showing anything in HD on it's HD channel for the last 2 weeks. Is there any way this is possible because they are upgrading equipment for an HD change-over? I wrote them 3 times about that and got no reply.

Update - The finally got back to me after I sent the e-mail to several people that work there. Some piece of HD NBC equipment had the sound go out so they had to air in SD for 2 weeks waiting for them to get a temporary replacement sent. They didn't say anything about me asking about HD news or syndication.

WCWN Albany does their news in HD. Not sure if its actually counted though, because they do use WRGBs resources and graphics(but its a different broadcast than the CBS Broadcast).
