Channel 10 (WPRO) in Providence operates the new WB affiliate, WLWC
(channel 28), in an LMA. WPRI, channel 12, operates the Fox affiliate,
WNAC, channel 64, also in an LMA arrangement. However, I think a full-power
television duopoly is not legal; I believe the two low-powered television
stations in Nashua, for example, are owned by the same outfit.
