The Bill Cunningham Show is a CW network show and part of the CW Daytime block, hence its move to WCCB.
Channel 28 is the new WGTB-CD, which replaced the analog WGTB-LP on the same channel. WGTB-CD's transmitters are located on Hood Road in eastern Mecklenburg County and on the Fox TV tower in Gaston County. http://transition.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/tvq?call=WGTB-CD

A decision reached by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in January (Echostar v. FCC) has invalidated some of the Commission's rules regarding encryption and STB's, including the requirement for cable systems to continue supporting and deploying CableCARDs.

This is to fulfill the FCC's E/I programming requirements, which require at least 3 hours per week of children's programming of an educational and/or informative nature on each of a TV station's subchannels.
It does look like WFMY and WXII are gone from the system... perhaps Wilkesboro's getting those channels from another source now.
