Officials with KFOR, KWTV, KOCO, KOKH and OETA in Oklahoma City and KSWO in Lawton said the switch from analog to digital signals is ready and will occur as planned.
As KOKH goes, so goes co-owned KOCB; KFOR will presumably switch over KAUT as well. (The KSWO move is important to OKC, because KOCO will be on channel 7, the channel being vacated by KSWO.)
Tulsa, maybe not so much:
Griffin Communications owns KOTV in Tulsa and KWTV in Oklahoma City. Griffin President David Griffin says he’s filed a request with the FCC to switch [KOTV] but says he could change his mind if all the stations don’t agree.
KJRH general manager Mike Vrabac says station officials have met to discuss a date to make the switch at the same time but haven’t met since yesterday’s vote in Congress.
Last I looked, KTUL was carrying the same wire story, but nothing else.
