Just Released



WHO-HD announced today that they are assisting a fellow central Iowa broadcaster in their time of need. Effective at 8:30 a.m. this morning, central Iowans could watch KDSM Fox 17 over the air on WHO Channel 13.3. This move also enabled KDSM’s programming to return to DirectTV and DISH Network. Engineers at both stations are working together to facilitate the signal is broadcast in high definition.

Now all Central Iowans are able to watch KDSM Fox 17’s programming including Channel 13 News at 9 on Fox 17, Chicago Cubs baseball scheduled for later today and Saturday afternoon and St. Louis Cardinals baseball scheduled for Saturday evening.

The addition of KDSM programming on WHO’s signal will temporarily displace Antenna TV (WHO 13.3) and THIS TV (WHO 13.4) from the air. This programming will return when KDSM is able to return to Channel 17.

KDSM has been off over the air transmission as well as satellite providers since last Friday, May 17 when the transmission line at their Alleman transmitter site failed. Efforts to repair the transmitter transmission line have been delayed. KDSM has maintained programming of all their channels over Mediacom cable thanks to a separate fiber connection.

    6/17/19- KDSM HAS NOT BEEN ON Ch17 FOR A ENTIRE MONTH! KDSM said they were going to work on their equipment and informed the public of this ahead of time. Their signal was good here in Iowa Falls until they shut down. Now KDSM HAS MANAGED TO UTILIZE 13.3 AND 13.4 FOR A MONTH. I M I S S ANTENNA TV and THIS!

    Hey WHO-TV REACTIVATE 13.4. Do we need to see the KDSM Ch17 message again and again??

    Hey KDSM…A MONTH? GET WITH IT! I need to inform the FCC
