No idea, though, how Tribune feels about the issue, though those two translator apps probably aren't coming back two owners later.
Those repeaters have been listed on the FCC query for a few years now. I doubt that FOX applied for those repeaters since WJW was sold to Local TV LLC back in 2007. WJW was still on pre-transition channel 31 at that time, and who knows if moving to RF 8 after the transition was even thought of back then. IMO, they should have stayed put on RF 31.
