WMNNMichigan's first all-digital independent low-power television station is now broadcasting in the Cadillac area with the sign-on of WMNN-LD, Channel 26, late last month.

The station is truly an independent operation, offering 3 sub channels that are not affiliated with any network.

The main signal, on 26.1, is billed as "MI News 26". It currently offers 30-minute programs that consist of five to eight minute feature items from a field reporter along with community news, information, announcements, and weather. There are usually at least two, and up to four, of these 30-minute programs that rotate, forming an hour or two loop that is updated at least once per day. The station runs a ticker at all times on 26.1 that can be quickly updated if there is breaking news or severe weather information that needs to get on the air immediately.

MI News 26 broadcasts at 720p on 26.1, for now making it Northern Michigan's only local news in HD.

26.2 and 26.3 are both offering classic television programming. 26.2 is '26 TV Classics', airing shows from the 1960s and earlier such as Jack Benny, Bonanza, Ozzie and Harriet, and old cartoons. 26.3 is '26 Cinema', airing old movies.

Technically, the station operates on Channel 14, with digital receivers remapping it to Channel 26. The effective radiated power is 425 watts @ 525 feet from an antenna located south of M-55 between US-131 and M-66 west of Cadillac. WMNN-LD is licensed to Lake City and owned by Freelancer Television Broadcasting. The station's web site is www.minews26.com.
