Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers Nov 19, 2008




Tri-Cities WHNN flips for Christmas

Citadel Classic Hits WHNN FM 96.1 made its annual move to full-time holiday song programming on Monday at 6am during Johnny Burke's morning show. WHNN becomes at least the fourth Michigan station to switch to all-Christmas since November 1st, joining WNIC-FM 100.3 Detroit and both WOOD-FM 105.7 and WLHT FM 95.7 Grand Rapids.



Michigan Television's WFUM Flint turns off analog transmiiter

Today marked the end of an era at WFUM TV 28 in Flint as the station became the first public TV station in Michigan to turn off its analog transmitter forever as part of the federally-mandated switchover to digital broadcasting. For at least the next couple of days, WFUM will only be available to cable subscribers as it has also shut down the digital transmitter that had been operating on Ch. 52 so that the station can return to the air on channel 28 with its finalized digital facilities.

Once over-the-air broadcasts resume, viewers wishing to watch Michigan Television via an antenna will either need a television capable of receiving the digital signal or a digital-to-analog converter box.

More details on the station's early switch over is available at www.michigantelevision.org/.
