Sometimes it doesn’t take long to get answers…!
- The FCC database has updated the listing for Channel 22 in Pittsburgh. It is officially WPNT – the callsign that graced 92.9 FM when it was beautiful music. The network is still “MY TV” for which WPMY stood. So perhaps there is something more than the eye can see coming down the line. One has to wonder why the calls didn’t go back to the original set – WPTT. They aren’t being used anywhere and were last used on Renda Broadcasting’s 1360 AM in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
- A few eager LAFF-TV fans have e-mailed us as well. WPXI’s planned start date for 11.3 is now June 15. I suggested that it was due to technical reasons for the channel which has remained dormant for a few years. One alert reader suggests that it’s to allow local cable outlets – Comcast, Verizon, and others – to make room on their channel grids.
