While the telecommunications bill allowing duopolies
in local TV may be considered bad, here's one example
where it's good: Ch. 4 was able to run the football
game, keeping its committment to CBS, and _still_
have storm coverage on via their sister station,
Ch. 38.

I know in the past there were instances when Ch. 38
came in handy; when Bishop O'Malley was named
to head the local diocese, Ch. 4 carried the
installation live and shuttled Bob Barker and The
Price is Right to 38.
