We’re Moving – WPME


On March 22nd, 2018 WPME will be moving to a new over the air channel.  If you watch WPME via antenna you may need to have your television rescan the channels to ensure you don’t miss any of your shows.  Below are instructions for some common TV manufacturers on how to rescan for your TV channels.  If you have a TV that is not on this list please check your owner’s manual or watch the FCC’s rescan video which covers the general rescan instructions.
