McIntyre will be joined by representatives of WWAY-TV, the Federal Communications Commission and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, which administers the DTV-to-analog converter-box program.

The vast majority of full-power and low-power TV stations serving the Wilmington market are switching to digital Sept. 8, more than five months before the national switch-over for full-power stations, to help the FCC get a handle on what issues will arise.

"Southeastern North Carolina and the Wilmington media-viewing market have the opportunity to shape this transition for the entire nation," McIntyre said in announcing the meeting.
