    I live in N GA, but use an antenna. I'm curious if other Sarkes Tarzian stations in other markets are affected or just WRCB NBC 3 Chattanooga?
    ALSO--In looking at their signal, if you are from E of Chattanooga to Cleveland, and S to Chattooga County (Summerville GA,) N into Sequatchie County (gets kinda hilly there) or W to S. Pittsburgh TN, an amplified indoor to small outdoor antenna should suffice

    They must have worked out a deal because it’s still on.

    I’m surprised to see mention Sarkes Tarzian name except from local senior citizens. Bloomington Indiana born and raised and pioneer in broadcast technologies starting in the 40’s.

    Wasn’t it 5 PM, MST or EST? If EST, that would give 20 more minutes.

    That sounds like a final extension. Interesting.

    I hope they reach a deal as far as WRCB is concerned that is the most watched channel in the Chattanooga DMA.
    I am already getting texts and calls from family and friends asking what is going on.

    How is any of this an all in Capitals headline news other than perhaps those in that Market - I don't even care when it's a station in my own market anymore. :) It will be back...

    I wonder if that will ever not happen -- Dish just stops carrying a local and it never comes back. Clearly they decided not to pursue locals in the same way with Sling, and they really seem to be pushing OTA solutions.
