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 WWOR will install interim facilities and transition early at the One World Trade Center transmission site in New York City. The main site will require a new transmitter and combiner. The NJ Aux site will require new transmitter and combiner.
