KWBF-TV Vice President and General Manager, Neal Ardman said, "In the wake of the merger of The WB and UPN we explored various programming replacements and are excited to announce our partnership with My Network TV." Ardman went on to say, "When making a decision about a new affiliation we wanted to bring something new to our viewers of central Arkansas and we feel they will be just as delighted in My Network TV as we are."

Wow - Somebody doesn't know how to read. The WB and UPN Networks are merging.

Unless of course by "UPN" You are referring to local UPN affiliate KASN.

Well, it's not set in stone that KASN will get the CW, but this certainly makes it look that way. I hope so, if just to finally have Smallville in HD. My Network TV's schedule of recycled Mexican soap operas is perfect for KWBF's low powered, bad level setting, non-HD station. Let the pros at Clear Channel get the better (than MyTV anyway) programming.

That is great news, since the CW will get a REAL affilate in KASN, plus full powered HD. Finally, no more watching "party poker dot com" ads on local spots during your favorite WB programming!!!

Course when (insert callsign here) ch 42 goes digital, they could always mulitcast univision, and MyTVNet.
