I saw that too the other day, Examiner. It doesn't sound positive to me - WTVA tried to claim financial hardship but then didn't bother to provide ample evidence. I have a feeling they'll do everything they can to resist the change until the analog sunset in 2009.
It'll be interesting to see if getting admonished (which, as far as I know, is one step below getting fined) will kick them in gear. Somehow, I doubt it.
Considering the analog channel still hasn't upgraded to 1980's technology (stereo) I'm not holding my breath that they're jumping into the 21st century anytime soon.
At this point, I'm thankful they broadcast in color.
