I can still remember seeing segments on WFMY that I had never seen before. A few of those segments are still missing from the DVDs even today.

I hope WFMY didn't chunk all those old tapes when they were forced to switch, but I bet they did sadly. I wish I had recorded more of those episodes to VHS back when I had WFMY years ago. It was great to see the local promos for the "themes" and groups of episodes they use to air.
Yes. Andy still runs on WFMY. 2pm in the afternoon. It has continuously run on WFMY since it debuted on CBS back in the 60's.

But Zap2it says 4pm, with The Talk airing at 2.

Per an FCC application filed yesterday, WCWG will channel share on WXII's signal with at least one 720p and one 480i channel.

Will Lockwood still own the CW affiliation or is it acquired by Hearst? Hopefully WXII will remain 1080i and WCWG will be 720p.

There will still be two separate licenses, one for WCWG and one for WXII. Of course, WXII could go even further and produce a newscast for WCWG, and WCWG would act as an alternate NBC affiliate when WXII has to preempt network shows.

I guess we have to be thankful that the CW network is the only Triad local that we lost to the auction (with its own separate OTA signal). If could have been worse. But whatever the case, hopefully this will not compromise the signal of WXII once the CW network is moved over to channel 12.

The concern will be preserving the HD video quality. But WSOC has done very good job with 2 HD channels on 9.1 and 9.2 since they added Telemundo. So it can be done.

Just heard that WCWG 20 (19) will officially turn their transmitter off and begin leased spectrum broadcasting on WXII July 31st. The first reaction locally of the Spectrum Auction.
