WHDH-DT Now Simulcasting

Worcester is in a hole all the way around.  WFCR is spotty, too.  Of WGBH,
WBUR, and WFCR, WGBH probably does the best overall, but none of them covers
the whole city reliably.


Hadn't thought of that angle. We moved to Worcester a few years ago from NJ,
they got one franchise for the whole state.  That was the price they paid
for not having to negotiate town by town - everybody in the state had to be
lit up within a relatively short time frame, maybe three years. Here in
Massachusetts, where they did not get a statewide franchise, they are free
to pick and choose, and I guess they can decide never to serve places where
the demographics don't add up for them.
