What Trip said.

I don't see how they can cut more costs from WNCN (Raleigh) and still put out a product that's even remotely competitive. Stop doing news? Force WNCN and WNCT into some type of...

So speaking of WNCT...

Nexstar Broadcasting is buying Media General. I feel bad for the people at WNCT. That station along with many more are about to be absolutely cratered. The lean years...

He's right, the new management doesn't deserve that. Old habits die hard. The previous management made the station look like it was in market # 200. To be fair they actually put out a even better...

WILM has one year left on the CBS contract. They will continue to operate it status quo as a CBS affiliate but after the year, what happens is up in the air.

Haven't seen either of these mentioned - WNCN is carrying Justice network on 17.3 now, and 22.2 is now ASN24/7, which seems to be replays of sports that ASN has carried.

Too few full power stations

26 was CBS until the mid 90s, and one of the worst CBS affiliates there was. Until WILM became CBS around 2000 I recall WNCT being piped in on Wilmington cable.

They would probably end up affiliating with 3 or 6 on a subchannel. 3 could only do it if they drop the CW or air CW in standard def.

WRAL uses CBS network bits in the WRAZ newscasts. They just don't directly reference CBS. This probably wouldn't be any different.

However, the relationship with CBS and Capitol is probably so...

I doubt it will hurt WRAL's newscasts much. They have too much loyalty for it to, and WNCN's newscasts look so small-market that people won't be inclined to stick around and watch.

Some articles say this goes back to a reverse comp dispute. Possibly also over the ability to stream programs locally, since CBS likes to control that themselves. There's probably a few prongs to...

I have a theory. And the way CBS mentions how happy they are to partner with Media General kind of proves it (see WNCN's article on the switch).

A year or two ago Media General tried to have WRAL...

You may need to try getting PBS off the Greenville/Farmville transmitter, WUNK. The Chapel Hill-based WUNC transmitter is pretty far out from you.

What kind of "beep"? Is it standardized?

WRAL has always used a sounder that's the first three notes of their news music. Doesn't sound all that bad.

The only reason this worked so well for me is the ability to knock down WNCT a few dB's. If NCT were also circular I would still be SOL.

I had the RCA on hand. It worked well enough that I'm not planning to change it out, but you are far enough out that you may need something bigger.
