The WOSU DTV transition phone bank lit up from 5:30-6:30 yesterday, precisely when a forum discussion sponsored by the Columbus Metropolitan Club took to the air. The forum was focused on the analog shutdown of broadcasting and what it meant for stations and viewers. I moderated it with guests including Ohio Assn of Broadcasters head Christine Merritt, WBNS President and GM Tom Griesdorn and Dr. Don Flournoy of Ohio University. Both the Columbus Fox and CW stations shutdown their over the air analog last night. Inside this blog are some photos from yesterday. We had many staff and board volunteers helping answer calls about antennas, coupons, converter box scanning and more. The HelpLine number is 800-723-4626.
