Grant to Help WV Public Broadcasting Replace Transmission System

West Virginia Public Broadcasting has been awarded a $366,000 federal grant for digital television programming in southern West Virginia.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture grant was announced Wednesday by U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall and Sens. Jay Rockefeller and Joe Manchin.

West Virginia Public Broadcasting plans to replace an outdated transmission system with a digital translator and locate it in Welch. Rahall says the grant will help viewers from Bluefield to Logan who lost signal quality on their sets after last year's nationwide switch to digital TV.
