Will Lockwood still own the CW affiliation or is it acquired by Hearst? Hopefully WXII will remain 1080i and WCWG will be 720p.

Will the Samsung Smart Remote from the 2016 KS8000 series operate this soundbar or is it only compatible with the 2017 series TV?

WSOC has new drone cam, SkyDrone 9. Probably cheaper than flying that chopper all the time. Although the Chopper 9 probably still works best for breaking news and car wrecks.

Both WNTV and WGGS are on Paris Mountain and probably may share the same transmission facility. Or at least the same power supply. But perhaps they should look at a backup plan. But if you have an...

FOX did the same in DC where they sold WDCA Channel 20 which is going off the air. Probably channel share with WTTG FOX-5. I remember back when WDCA was a superstation similar to WTBS and was carried...
