Gray adds color to CBS affiliation plans


Gray TelevisionWe knew that Gray Television was picking up CBS affiliations for LPTVs in three markets. Now we know when the Eye Network will start to show up on local television screens in those locations.

WECP Panama City and WIYE Parkersburg WV will kick off their on-air relationship with CBS 9/1/12. And a month later, on 10/1/12, CBS will begin to air on WSVF in Harrisonburg VA.

Via the magic of digital simulcasting and the use of low power signals which do no count when calculating local ownership cap compliance, Gray will be offering as comprehensive a collection of broadcast networks as you are likely to find anywhere in the United States – a phenomenon generally seen in only the smallest, signal-poor markets.

It detailed its offering in each market once the CBS stations kick off with the network.
