In the SF Bay Area, last week KTVU (which recently became a O&O Fox affilate) revamped its news with new graphics and can actually show non-live HD replays starting on 2015-02-02.

WMBD-TV (CBS, Peoria, IL) finally joins the HD news bandwagon. (It's not known if sister station WYZZ, the local Fox affiliate, made the upgrade with WMBD-TV.)

KTVL (CBS, Medford, OR) looks to be in HD with local news after I just saw a story on video on their web site. (Previously, they were only 4:3 SD.)

Which stations have NOT yet converted to HD around North America?

In areas I've tracked, KETV/ABC Omaha and KRCG/CBS Jefferson City finally made the switch in the last year or so.

KDNL/ABC St. Louis remains widescreen SD. Is there a major network affiliate in any metro larger than St. Louis that is still SD or does KDNL hold the unfortunate title of largest affiliate to only have SD news. (As an aside, KDNL is a joke. Even KPLR/CW11 is a much bigger-budget, polished station with a good HD local news product.)
