A while back, ABC announced that it would keep LiveWell on its O&O stations but would not produce any new episodes or launch any new programs. It'll be just repeats of previously aired programming.

I wonder if WACP (RF 4) in Atlantic City is happy with its virtual channel designation. :)
According to the coverage maps, it has a humongous coverage area.

Bill Bradley! He was on the Knicks back when they were a good team.
This year's Knicks aren't even worthy of a subchannel slot on an LPTV station, much less a cable TV deal.

Wow. All these rich guys are cranking out TV movies, TV miniseries, and theatrical films on the first century of the Christian movement, and not one of them shows much respect for the New Testament.
