UPDATE: The switch goes on

Despite Congress recently passing a delay of the switch from analog to digital television until June 12, many television stations (including several here in town) are still planning to go forward with “the switch” on the original date of February 17.

Currently NBC 13, CBS 42 and APT 9 all plan to proceed with the signal switch. We’d appreciate it if folks could chime in on if they know whether or not the other local stations will follow suit.

UPDATE: Just got word via Twitter (thanks James Spann) that ABC 33/40 will continue to broadcast in both analog and digital until June 12.

For the Record goes on, until 2.3

Alabama’s only statewide news program, For the Record, is scheduled to have its current format go dark after 25 years on the air come February 3. The Huntsville Times reported the story in this morning’s┬ápaper, with FTR moderator Tim Lennox offering this note on his blog earlier today.

It is one of several announcements expected later today from APTV’s Birmingham offices and according to the Times’ article, it may not be the only one due to proration for our state’s television station.
