WZRB CW-47, 1747 Cushman Drive: 17 March 2014   7 comments

Posted at 10:56 pm in Uncategorized

My sister mentioned to me tonight that the only channel that *always* came in clear at her house, channel 47, was gone, and that the CW network it had carried had moved to channel 63.

Wikipedia confirms the move of the CW as of 17 March 2014, but says that WZRB is still carrying ION (which started on 10 Feburary 2014). However, my sister says she's getting nothing on channel 47, and the station website is "under construction", so I'm not sure what's going on there.

The station started out as a UPN affiliate, and seems to have had an interesting and somewhat fraught history according to that same Wikipedia article.

(Hat tip to my sister)

  1. I was wondering what was going on there. I noticed the switch too. 47 for me has always been the weakest channel, but I see it nightly when I rotate through the OTA channels before going to sleep.

  2. I'm getting 47 ok at work (broadcast) and home (ATT).

  3. Hmm. Interesting. Maybe she was just having a glitch. I can't check it because I don't have a working TV right now. The web site was definitely blank last night though..

  4. The Car Wash on Harbison next to Bojangles has on its marquee "closed and retired."

  5. I noticed today that ION (channel 19 on TWC) was dark. I guess since channel 13 is simulcasting the same programs, and they are required to make local stations available, that they took down 19 because of one of those dual content regulations that went into effect years ago. One of the reasons cable could never carry similar programming from affiliates in GSP, CHS, AUG, etc. that competed with local stations

  6. @Tom - I noticed the car was was close a few weeks ago and put a blurb on "Have Your Say'. I guess Tom hasn't gotten around to it yet. Next time I'm in the area, if I think about it, I'll snap off some pics with my phone and post them.

    I also need to take some pics of the Precision Tune in Irmo that has been 'closed for remodeling', with no activity, for over a month.
