WMFE overlap stations don't jump at possible primary status
Reverberations from the impending sale of primary PBS affiliate WMFE in Orlando, Fla., continue. Secondary stations WDSC at Daytona State College and WBCC in Cocoa, run by Brevard Community College, are taking a wait-and-see approach. WDSC officials said they are "too busy trying to keep their own station going to consider taking on more programming from WMFE," reports the News-Journal in Daytona Beach. A statement from WBCC-TV said it is "considering all options." A PBS spokesperson told the paper that the local stations, not PBS, will make the decision as to which will be primary.
