Although it’s yet to be officially announced, as expected, Sinclair’s WPNT is poised to become Pittsburgh’s new CW affiliate. The station’s own online listings confirm the change in affiliation from My Network TV in primetime. CBS-owned WPCW will have its last day as a CW affiliate on Aug. 31 before going fully independent.
WPGH, WTAE and WPNT roll out the new television transmission technology.
The sales director of the group’s Pittsburgh Fox-MNT duopoly is taking over from Jim Lapiana.
