Who will be our local CBS affiliate when WRAL switches to NBC?

Hunter Ingram

When WRAL completes its much-discussed transition from a CBS affiliate to the new home of NBC on Feb. 29, the local affiliate, CBS 10 WILM, will not be affected.

Connie Knox, general manager of WILM-TV, said the local station will not lose any of its CBS programming or its Raleigh-based WRAL newscasts.

Knox said local viewers had expressed concern that the newscasts and anchors would change.

But the WRAL newscast seen in Wilmington is run by Capitol Broadcasting, not an individual affiliate, so nothing changes.

“It’s WRAL that is making a network change, not WILM,” Knox said. “All stays the same here.”

    We are part-time residents in Carolina Beach and use an antenna to receive our local TV stations, which works well by the way, we get all three networks plus others. My concern is this: I listened to an interview with the owner of WRAL on their switch to NBC, he stated that when the change occurs on Feb. 29, WILM will not change at that time because negotiations for their status does not come up until October, so my question is, what happens in October…does WILM negotiate for itself or is WRAL part of that and what changes, if any, can we expect then?

    Thank you for your time on this question.
