• Northern Michigan FOX network affiliate WFQX TV Cadillac has proposed a change to its digital TV allocation from Channel 47 to Channel 32 and to move its digital transmitter from north of Kalkaska back to where its current analog signal transmits from south of Cadillac. The station's previous owner had planned to sign off sister station WFUP Ch. 45 in February but instead new owner Cadillac Telecasting will transition that station to digital broadcasts on Ch. 45 to serve northern viewers and then use Ch. 32 to provide coverage to viewers that currently receive the analog Fox 33 in the southern portion of the Traverse City-Cadillac market.

• Cornerstone University has received its license to cover for new station WCFG FM 90.9 Springfield/Kalamazoo however the station is currently not operating. According to an application for the station to be temporarily silent, "WCFG cannot continue operations at its present transmitter site due to structural deficiencies affecting the tower structure. For this reason, a lease for permanent tower space is not available. WCFG is in the process of identifying a nearby site and will file an application for new permanent facilities within 90 days."
