A reader over at “The Mighty Blog of Fun” Ohio Media Watch has reported there that the FCC has approved a power increase for ABC affiliate WYTV DT 36 (33-1) from 50kw to 1,000kw. The station has always had less power than both WKBN and WFMJ in the valley going back to its former analog signal which did not even broadcast in stereo. WYTV also carries “MyYTV” 33-2 which is a “MyTV” affiliate as well as “My Valley Weather” on 33-3. A power increase will certainly be a plus for the station but financial problems with New Vision (who recently filed for bankruptsy) could prevent the increase from happening. Hopefully, it will not be an issue and the increase can go on as planned if the station is to remain competitive.
