You are kidding right?
There are NO immediate plans to broadcast from 1WTC. So don’t hold your breath or plan on it any time soon!

The only broadcasts that have ever come off the new 1WTC were experimental overnight broadcasts on channels 12 and 32. Those ended quite a while ago.

Nobody is building anything while the Incentive Auction looms (unless there's a catastrophic failure). No sensible station is going to build a brand new facility just to potentially have to rip it all out and replace it next year, especially since any change of channel ordered by the government will be paid for by the government at that time.

Would you buy a new car now if there was a good chance the government would buy you a new car next year?

So we are probably talking about 2018 at the earliest for any plans to broadcast from 1WTC.
