One will have to go. I'm betting that they'll keep WITI and WVTV, with both located at the Brown Deer studios. WCGV is selling their spectrum in the auction, but still have a license and must-have status on local cable. It might wind up with one of Sinclair's shell companies, but even this monopoly-friendly FCC might take issue with their shell games. If WCGV goes to an outside party, expect it to be stripped to the bone, with the best shows moving to 6/18 (they might allow MNTV to be included with 24. The new complex on the Northwest side could go too. As for buyers, think Univision could come into play, or are they content with just local cable coverage?
