WKYT - Good Question - Headlines

Good Question: Reply All

You name it, we receive it to our Good Question inbox.

For this question and answer segment we are talking television.

Good Question: Reply All to what you want to know about the news and how you watch it.

Last April WKYT flipped the switch, turning off our analog transmitter to go with an all-digital signal.

For some viewers who received WKYT only over the air and not by cable, this created a big problem.

The VHF signal is more susceptible to interference and people farther away from the station just couldn't get us and station management decided we needed to apply for a UHF license.

Brad in Stamping Ground asked: What is the latest on the conversion from VHF to UHF at WKYT, when will you make the change?

WKYT's Director of Operations says we are shooting for the first of May.

Its not as simple as flipping a switch, the station had to seek approval from the FCC.

That was granted four weeks ago and we will need new equipment which is being built.

Once we have the new equipment in house it will have to be installed.

Earl in Lawrenceburg writes: When telling the news on air, it seems you are talking straight into the camera, do you memorize your reports?

I wish we could say we did, but we don't, we have teleprompters.

Our prompters are attached to our cameras and the words scroll in front of us.

This allows Sam and me to look straight ahead and read, but we always have our hard copies ready, anything can happen.
