This is really a good deal for some public tv stations.
They can just take the money and run.
Make a deal for a cable channel or somebody's multiplex
broadcast channel. I think if you are on a multiplex channel,
You are not encumbered with FCC regulations (at least as much)
as you were when you were a primary transmitter. All you will need is
a manager, and a person to sell underwriting and membership.
A few clerks and someone to contract productions and grants.
Oh, and someone to do the books. Outsource everything else.

The current channel and new channel columns are reversed.
Aircheck? You'd make a great board op.
