: : TV station takes WKRP call letters of famous fictional Cincinnati show

: : By Associated Press

: : 8:48 AM CST, November 29, 2008

: : CINCINNATI (AP) -- WKRP is back on the air in Cincinnati - but this time it's for real.

: : A low-power TV station has changed its call letters to WKRP, the same as the fictional radio station in the 1970s hit series "WKRP in Cincinnati."

: : The station changed its call letters to promote its new digital TV signal. It formerly went by WBQC-TV.

: : General Manager Elliott Block says the new call letters give the station recognition because so many people remember the television sit-com.

: : On the Net:

: : www.wkrp.tv

: Actually, it looks like just a change of station branding; they're still officially WBQC-CA. There already is a low-power TV station in Tennessee with the WKRP call letters. There also used to be a full-power WKRP-TV in West Virginia, what's now known as WLPX-TV (a set of calls that anyone reading from Milwaukee will certainly remember).

Seriously? I took the article at face value and didn't bother digging. If you're right, that's pretty lame. Their web site kinda blows too for all the publicity they're getting. I expected more.
