WBKB-TV, the only station licensed
by the FCC to Alpena, Mich.,
will add a third affiliation thanks to digital
multicasting.

The primary CBS affiliate is already a Fox affiliate on its
11.2 digital channel. Now it is adding ABC programming through a just-announced
affiliation deal between ABC and owner Thunder Bay Broadcasting.

ABC will be on 11.3, and will bring the market its only
morning news show, according to ABC -- WKBW will produce a newscast to lead in
to Good Morning America.

Thunder Bay already owns the ABC affiliate in Marquette,
Mich., WBUP.
