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

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.”
