I was there when history was made, sort of.
WNEP turned off its analog transmitter at 11:59 Friday night. The transmitter is on Penobscot Knob in Hanover Township. I was at my desk back at the station in Moosic.
Number of phone calls received? Zero! Not one digital related call on my shift, 11 pm Friday to 9 am Saturday. We did get some calls when DirecTV lost our audio feed Saturday morning, but as far as viewers unprepared for the digital switch-- none.
I guess all those months of mind numbing announcements and crawls did the trick.
Thank you for making my night a quiet one.
AT 2:56 AM
