I think they may still carry WeatherNation on WFMY in Greensboro, which is also Gannett. So I thought maybe WCNC would pick it up as well, but I guess not. And some Gannett stations carry Cozi TV...

I think I read where Samsung will have a final production run of their plasmas in November. So perhaps they will do some holiday sales before they become scarce.

I wonder if they will lower prices again by Black Friday. Last summer, the 60 inch was $649 and $679 at various retailers. Now it is back to $799 at most stores.

There is a small white label on the side of the box which says in big bold letters what the model is. It will plainly say PN60F5300-BFXZA or AFXZA. And it will also give the panel version, which is...

In many markets, Kelly and Michael airs on the ABC affiliate. And although it is a Disney/ABC show, it is syndicated. And WYFF-4 airs it here. So the 3rd hour of Today is delayed and airs in place of...

^^I like the old Southern Gospel groups as well, including the Happy Goodmans and the Bill Gaither shows. And Jimmy Swaggart has good gospel music on 16.3, which you can get with an antenna.
