At noon today, Fox 66 WFXP has ceased its analog operations on channel 66 according to YourErie.com. With work now complete on sister station WJET DT 24 and their conversion to digital, Fox can now feed regional cable companies as well as Dish Network their digital signal on DT 22 which remaps to 66-1. In 1986, channel 66 signed on as WETG which was owned by Gannon University. The station had limited broadcast hours as well as a limited coverage area. Programming in those early days included “Bonanza” and “I Love Lucy” which featured commentary by Father Tom McSweeney. WETG would later pick up the Fox affiliation which would give the station more stability. Fox was unsure about giving WETG its affiliation but soon saw the numbers and found that there was an audience in Erie for Fox. The station certainly has grown and now has the most powerful signal in the Erie market. With WFXP’s analog shutoff, this leaves only WICU TV 12 as the only full powered analog station in Erie until June 12th.
