If the LPTVs are transmitting CBS in 1080i, might they change CBS on KVLY to 480 widescreen (I doubt CBS would let them drop from a full power signal) and put other Weigel channels removed from KRDK...

Answers why Gray is interested in some LPTV CPs. I wonder if they'll carry CW on the LPTVs, or if they do NBC in 1080i plus CBS, CW, & MeTV in 480i on KVLY and put CBS in 1080i on the LPTVs?
