It's just not right to be calling yourself "WGNA" if there's no "WGN" in your programming.
Turner was able to pull off the trick of turning WTBS into TBS, but WGN conjures up images of Chicago to a...

Glad to see that the article finally got around to mentioning antennas, but the term "digital antenna" really irks me. Somebody should tell this "tech guy" for the NYT that an old outdoor UHF...

Olivia Newton-John did not look particularly Polish. Besides, an ethnic slur would not have been appropriate in a movie aimed at a mass audience. "All in the Family" could get away with it on TV in...

Would TV stations have to buy whole new transmitters for ATSC 3.0?
If so, they might not be too keen on ponying up the money, especially if they were not 100% guaranteed that almost all of their...

By federal law (or FCC regulation), all TV sets sold in the U.S. must have built-in ATSC tuners.

The Olympics are in desperate need of reform. They need to find a way to guarantee a safe, unpolluted environment for the athletes and a just way of distributing the money that the games generate.
