TV Stations Scrambling for Antennas, Ratings and Revenue

This article is in today's NY Times. Basically, the NY-area stations are
getting together and planning a 2,000 FOOT tower somewhere nearby -
perhaps Governor's Island. Will this create another Sutro or CN? And what
about the impact that would have on Philly and Boston stations?

Here's the first paragraph:
"Six weeks after the collapse of the World Trade Center, hundreds of
thousands of homes in the New York area remain unable to receive more than
two television stations, and the local broadcasting industry, already
reeling from economic losses of tens of millions of dollars, finds itself
increasingly desperate to find a long-term solution that will restore its
ability to reach every possible viewer."
