WSAZ Completes HD Switch, Donates Old Equipment to West Virginia State University

Like many local stations, WSAZ — the NBC affiliate in Charleston, WV — has completed the switch to high definition across their news broadcasts.

“This represents the end of a multi-year, multi-million dollar project and the beginning of a new way for all television viewers in the Charleston-Huntington market to see their world,” vice president and general manager Don Ray said. “We’ll all be looking at the drama and excitement that happens every day in breathtaking color and clarity.”

Part of making the switch included new equipment upgrades for WSAZ. The station donated the old equipment — including field cameras, editors, video switchers, television audio consoles and studio cameras — to the communications department¬† West Virginia State University.

WSAZ is the first station in the Charleston market to make the switch. The station will show their local broadcasts, as well as nationally syndicated NBC programming, in HD.
