NPT Media: The end of analog in El Paso

A news release from ABC-7:

KVIA, OTHER EL PASO/LAS CRUCES TV STATIONS DISCONTINUING ANALOG TV

ON JUNE 12

KVIA-TV has elected to maintain its analog television signal until June 12, 2009. That’s the date which the Federal Communications Commission has mandated for stations as part of the transition to digital television.

Kevin Lovell, general manager of KVIA-TV, has spoken with other general managers of other full-power television stations in El Paso and Las Cruces. Most say they will maintain their analog signal until June 12, 2009. Those stations include KDBC, KFOX, KINT, KSCE, KTDO, and KTSM in El Paso, and KRWG in Las Cruces. Craig Brush, general manager of public television station KCOS in El Paso, says his station may shut off its analog signal before June 12.

  1. I don’t get it, Lovell was one of the harshest critics about any delay in DTV, now that there’s a delay till June he agrees and will keep analog transmitter going? Could it be because only KTSM is the true HD/DT station in town? What a hypocrite!
