WTVP changed it's frequency last Friday which was the date federally mandated by the FCC. Unfortunately we are currently broadcasting using a temporary antenna until the old antenna can be removed from our tower and the new one installed in it’s place and as a result many viewers are unable to locate WTVP after their re-scan.

The antenna replacement has been delayed due to the availability of tower crews which climb the towers and perform the work. Originally our antenna was scheduled to be replaced in mid-December, but the crew was delayed due to issues at other job sites and the weather. With each winter storm that hits the Midwest it causes greater delays. The most recent schedule update has the crew at our tower sometime in early to mid-February, again all depending on not having issues at their current tower site and the weather.
