RE: ID Cities

The 6:30PM identification on WPTZ read:  "Plattsburgh - North Pole - Burlington"
There are others in the pipeline that read: "Plattsburgh - North Pole - Burlington - 
Montreal", although, under Hearst-Argyle ownership, the seeming necessity to latch 
on to the "Big City" an hour north as some sort of internal identity crisis has lessened, 
a mantle taken up, though, by WFFF Fox Burlington, with Montreal a consistent part 
of any and all IDs.
