Rochester’s WROC to Launch HD Newscasts

Rochester CBS-affiliate WROC is preparing to launch in high definition.

Matt Malloy announced the HD transition on the 4 p.m. newscast yesterday. WROC newscasts are currently taking place on a temporary set while the old set is dismantled and the new one is built. Newscasts on WUHF, the Fox-affiliate that is operated by WROC through a shared service agreement, will also be transitioning to HD, according to a statement on the station’s website.

“We’re very excited about the changes here and we hope you are too,” Malloy said. “We’re going to have more details about News 8 in HD in the coming weeks.”
