Exhibit 21
Description:
EXHIBIT 21

PURSUANT TO THE PROCEDURES ADOPTED IN THE COMMISSION'S PUBLIC NOTICE, FCC 09-6 (REL. FEB. 5, 2009) (THE 'PUBLIC NOTICE'), WPMI-DT RESPECTFULLY REQUESTS SPECIAL TEMPORARY AUTHORITY TO DISCONTINUE ITS INTERIM DTV SERVICE AND COMMENCE OPERATION OF ITS AUTHORIZED, FINAL DTV FACILITY (FILE NO. BMPCDT-20080711ADJ) ON FEBRUARY 17, 2009. AS THE STATION IS CONCURRENTLY ADVISING THE COMMISSION, IT INTENDS TO DISCONTINUE ITS ANALOG SERVICE ON FEBRUARY 17 AND THEREAFTER TO OPERATE ONLY DIGITAL SERVICE.

AS THE ATTACHED ENGINEERING ANALYSIS REFLECTS, THE STATION HAS DETERMINED THAT THE PROPOSED OPERATION OF ITS POST-TRANSITION DIGITAL FACILITY WILL (1) NOT CAUSE IMPERMISSIBLE INTERFERENCE TO ANY AUTHORIZED ANALOG OR PRE-TRANSITION DIGITAL STATIONS; AND (2) MAINTAIN AT LEAST ITS CURRENT DIGITAL SERVICE. SEE PUBLIC NOTICE AT 6.

BECAUSE THE PROPOSED STA FACILITY IS IDENTICAL TO THE STATION'S AUTHORIZED POST-TRANSITION FACILITY, THE STATION WILL (1) COMMENCE FULL, AUTHORIZED POST-TRANSITION OPERATIONS BEFORE THE TRANSITION DEADLINE, JUNE 12, 2009; AND (2) NOT CAUSE THE LOSS OF SERVICE TO ANY VIEWERS WHO CURRENTLY RECEIVE THE STATION'S ANALOG OR DIGITAL SERVICE AND WHO ARE PREDICTED TO RECEIVE THE STATION'S AUTHORIZED POST-TRANSITION SERVICE.
