KWQC Davenport Adds Ion TV On Subchannel
On Nov. 1, Media General’s NBC affiliate KWQC Davenport, Iowa (DMA 101), will replace The Weather Channel on ch. 6.2 with Ion Television.
“More people than ever are receiving weather information right when they need it on their mobile devices with apps like QCWeather, as well as on kwqc.com,” said KWQC Creative Services and Programming Director Eric VanWinkle. “Knowing that viewers have many online options for getting TV6 First Alert Weather, we decided it was time to [offer] another entertainment option with our 6.2 subchannel.”
Ion’s programming lineup includes Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Blue Bloods, Flashpoint and other procedural dramas. Upcoming movies include Hitman, Point Break and Man on Fire.
In addition to its availability on ch. 6.2, Ion will be offered on Mediacom ch. 247.
