Oh okay. I didn't make the connection. LOL I'm pretty sure WYZZ will also gain the capability at the same time. Since WMBD operates them, I'm pretty sure their signals pass through WMBD.

Here's one last thing I have to say, though it will probably fall of deaf ears.

In 2007, WHOI bought a WSI system that was used on all newscasts until the WEEK takeover. And even after the...

I'm surprised there's no further reporting about the Granite/Quincy deal. No news outlets nor any mention in forums. I would think people would care. It was long-anticipated.
