UPDATE 2 11:25 PM: Per Rich Emery: The Kentucky.com article below has mistakes.
Ignore WCHS and WVAH in Charleston. Those two are NOT going to go.
As for WOWK they're already digital, and WSAZ is going to go tonight, following the mistake by Gray Television which will send WYMT-TV into the analog afterlife tonight.
UPDATE 11:05 PM: I have more new information on stations which are shutting down, besides those mentioned and WSTR-TV/DT here.
This list is from Kentucky.com's newest aricle and was sent to us by Tom (going by what we assume is his ham radio callsign of KR4BD), based in Lexington.
In Lexington, WTVQ-TV 36 will switch tomorrow night at midnight, during "Nightline".
In Charleston/Huntington, these stations will switch: ABC affiliate WCHS, Fox affiliate WVAH, CBS affiliate WOWK and NBC affiliate WSAZ.
Down in Louisville, the list includes CW affiliate WBKI.
In Bowling Green, this includes WKYU (PBS) and NBC affiliate WNKY.
And finally, in Paducah, the list includes WDKA (MyNetworkTV) and KBSI (Fox).
Original item follows...
I have a bunch of new information tonight about the DTV switchover that will take place tonight or tomorrow in some markets. I wish to thank Rich E. for all of his help...
First, let's go national. This AP article includes quotes from a South Dakota General Manager and the President of Gray Television who both, in no uncertain terms, disagree with the June 12 delayed date. And the authors of the article say the majority of station owners they contacted who weren't quoted, say they believe viewers are ready.
And that brings us to two Gray Television stations within the three-state area we cover, WKYT-TV 27 in Lexington, Kentucky and WYMT-TV 57 in Hazard, Kentucky.
Rich pointed us to the WYMT website, where, as of this writing at 10:45pm, their clock is steadily and dutifully counting down to midnight tonight. That's when WYMT will go all digital on digital channel 12.
We of course reported earlier on a Kentucky.com story that said WKYT will go digital-only on April 13.
Meanwhile, we come back to the local area, where we now find that WPTD-TV 16 has indeed filed to keep analog going, per this article from the Dayton Daily News.
That completes the total disintegration of the plans for Dayton to go to an all-digital TV market tomorrow.
Unless there's a major change to local plans, this will likely be our final DTV update until Wednesday, when all stations should have switched that are going to switch.
