Broadcaster Information and Transition Plan

Back to Top
Question Response
Will the station be sharing equipment with another broadcast television station or stations (e.g., a shared antenna, co-location on a tower, use of the same transmitter room, multiple transmitters feeding a combiner, etc.)? If yes, enter the facility ID's of the other stations and click 'prefill' to download those stations' licensing information. Yes
Briefly describe transition plan Relocate primary WLIW transmitter to WTC shared site in New York City. Retain Aux site in Plainview NY. Both Transmitters require replacement. WTC is a shared leased antenna. Plainview antenna requires replacement.
