Altoona’s WTAJ Converting to HD

Newscasts at WTAJ will soon be in high definition, according to The Altoona Mirror.

“We are re-doing the entire set,” Phil Dubrow, VP-GM at the Altoona CBS affiliate, told the Mirror. “The clarity will be much better. Everything is getting upgraded from the studio cameras, set, graphics and logo. We are adding a new weather lab and adding weather cameras around the viewing area.”

Dubrow said Nexstar is in the process of upgrading many of their stations, and that WTAJ is the first to get a makeover this year.

“It will change the way people see things. The clarity will be better,” he said. “Everybody is jazzed up; there is a lot going on here.”
