I don't gamble, but if I did, my money would be on 19-2.

theres a choice between WACH and WLTX (i highly doubt WACH would take the CW as a subchannel)

i would guess theres a strong possibility that the CW would end up on channel 19.2, there was a similar situation here in the Macon area where WMAZ (also owned by the same company that owns WLTX) took the CW on its subchannel 13.2 thus removing the cable only affiliate.

and also i seen that WZRB buyer was changed over to Ion Media Networks meaning theres a chance Ion Television would be coming to Columbia

So the CW affiliate will become a religious station? And sort of a lower power level and shorter tower, I guess perhaps because WJZY in Charlotte is same RF channel 47. And they are full power 2000ft tower. Looks like adjacent markets would not share same channel.

WJZY in Charlotte, NC is a FOX O&O now and the CW affiliation relocated to former-FOX station WCCB. Also WCBD in adjacent Charleston, SC carries CW programming (CW Plus) on Channel 2.2 since its on RF 50. Plus WCSC 5 in Charleston shares RF 47 just like Greenville's NBC station WYFF 4 shares RF 36 like Los Angeles NBC O&O KNBC 4.
