WISH in Indianapolis was a hearty CBS affiliate, but is losing that affiliation at the end of the year. The station announced it will now become a lowly CW affiliate in the new year.
That's kind of like having a nice shinny new Corvette and then moving to a beat up old Ford Pinto.
“We welcome the CW network to our new prime time,” said WISH GM Les Vann. “This original and dynamic line-up of programming will drive new audiences to WISH-TV and our newscasts, and deliver key demographics to our advertisers.”
Reportedly he said that statement with a straight face but everyone knows that it is just lipstick on a pig.
