Had you heard that WIS-TV's GM Donita Todd (the woman who became the primary target after viewers were angry over Ben Hoover's contract not renewed and cause a PR Nightmare for channel 10 and she does the perspective editorials on that station) is retiring this month?


Too bad the damage has been done (especially they let poor Ben Hoover go), but Good Riddance Donita Todd.

Anyone have an idea as to whether Time Warner will eventually retransmite ch 47 and 63's HD feed of Ion and CW? I really don't care that much about 47's programming, but 63 carries some guilty pleasures, and I would really like to see one of 63's subs, AntennaTV, carried on cable too. Wouldn't mind them retransmitting RetroTV from 63 also, if just to watch old Doctor Who.

Out here in Lexington it's hot or miss pulling those in with an indoor antenna.

I often wonder the same thing. Watching The Flash, Arrow or Supernatural can be really, really painful. Is it just that TWC does not transmit the HD feed or is it because the station does not provide one? Can you get 63 in HD via OTA?

For the longest time they appeared to be poorly upscaling an SD feed to HD, but now they're in HD.

Btw, does anyone know what is going to roll out on WACH's new subchannel -- 57.4? It's currently up and broadcasting as TBD with the message "COMING SOON A NEW TV CHANNEL 57.4"

Speaking of Cord Cutters: I heard YouTubeTV has launched in nearby areas like Atlanta and Charlotte. I would love to see YouTube TV launched in Columbia, SC and the South Carolina Midlands. What do you think of YouTubeTV?
