Yesterday was the swan song for full powered analog TV broadcasts across the country. The digital transition took place among Youngstown’s 3 full powered stations. Both WKBN and WYTV shut off their analog stations at 12:05pm while WFMJ shut down their station at 11:59pm, which was good news for Pittsburgh Penguins fans who were not digital ready. According to, the transition went very smoothly and stations are reporting a few calls from either people who waited until the very last minute to go digital or those who waited until June 12th to hook up their converter boxes. None of the stations decided to keep their analog signals on to provide “Nightlight Service” in order to explain what viewers need to do regarding the transition.
