Here is a copy of an e-mail I sent to Scripps' corporate office about The Cool Tv and KERO in Bakersfield CA, also owned by McGraw-Hill:
I see that scripps is in the process of buying all the McGraw-Hill tv stations, including KERO and it's sister station low power KZKC in Bakersfield Ca. One thing about this has me worried. KERO currently carries The Cool Tv on it's subchannel 23-3. I really like The Cool Tv. I watch it frequently and I always record "80s at 8" every weeknight if I can't be at home. I sure hope that Scripps does not discontinue carrying The Cool Tv when the purchase of KERO becomes final. I have read online that scripps carries ABC's Live Well subchannel on all it's ABC affiliated stations. I have a much better idea for accomodating Live Well that does not involve dropping The Cool Tv. Scripps should switch low power KZKC 42 to digital ASAP after buying the stations. Then Live Well could be carried on a subchannel of KZKC, and the station would also be ready for the day that Azteca America switches to high definition. I know that the FCC has given low power, class A, and translator stations until December 31, 2015 to stop broadcasting in analog, but why wait until then? Seven Bakersfield area low power stations have already switched to digital broadcasting. KZKC should follow suit very quickly. Live Well is available in HD, so if Azteca uses 720p for HD, you could carry both Azteca and Live Well in HD on one RF channel if you use a good quality MPEG2 encoder, as ABC owned and operated stations carry both the main ABC channel and Live Well in HD. Whatever you do, please do not drop The Cool Tv from KERO!
If lots of Cool Tv fans in Bakersfield, Denver, San Diego, and other markets where McGraw-Hill currently owns stations would let Scripps know how we feel, maybe they will keep The Cool Tv!
