WYCC becomes first Chicago station to dump analog

WYCC-TV (which is on Channel 20) will become Chicago’s first television station to stop broadcasting in analog on April 16, two months ahead of the June 12 transition date.

The public television station (run by the City Colleges of Chicago and is based at Kennedy-King College on 63rd and Halsted) will join dozens of other stations across the country to shut off their analog signals on this date. One of those stations include Denver ratings powerhouse KUSA-TV, a Gannett-owned NBC affiliate.

WYCC currently broadcasts digitally on Channel 21, but due to PSIP, its virtual channel remains on 20.
