The Chicago PBS station is thinking about going off the air, too.

Reading that brought me up short. Doing a little Web search I found


a blogpost from two months ago, which argues that Chicago is overlooking almost half a million dollars by not

relinquishing the license of WYCC, Channel 20,, the little-watched noncommercial television station operated by City Colleges of Chicago.

That station is _not_ to be confused with the Chicago flagship public TV station, WTTW (which, I believe, produces the McLauglin Report).

I hope that since that blogpost was written Mr. Bame doesn't have any information indicating that WTTW is in danger of going off the air.
