Digital What?

Last February I did a series of stories on the Digital Conversion taking place in 2009. It was an interesting topic to dig into. I interviewed a lot of fun people, including experts on the conversion, as well as senior citizens who were nothing but confused. The basis of the conversion is that, by law, all TV stations have to get rid of their analog signal and switch everything to digital. It will allow TV stations to broadcast a better picture with less interruptions, as well as broadcast more information on a smaller bandwidth. It's said to be pretty remarkable when all is said and done.

You can check out my stories at http://www.wctv.tv/dtv under "Digital TV Switch Headlines."

The conversion is pretty confusing to a lot of people. And as well as I may have explained it in my stories I'd have to say this one sums it up even better...

Andrea, I didn't know that you had a blog. I'm so glad to find out. I heard from Brittany that you are in DC working for Senator Hatch. How is it going? Hope all is well.

I'm glad that you are posting to your blog now. It will be fun to check out how you're doing. I hope the new job is going well...you haven't blogged about that yet. I do feel bad for the elderly in the whole digital conversion. A lot of them will be like the lady in the video.
