Changes in local stations availability in some areas

Just a heads up that there will be some changes to some local channels tomorrow due to stations declining Must Carry or opting in for Must Carry. 
 
This means a handful of stations will be removed on January 1, 2009.  It also means a handful of stations have elected Must Carry and will be added to various markets.
 
In almost all cases, these are independent stations with the exception of one PBS channel in Charleston, WV.
 

DMAs Adding stations tomorrow
 
Lexington, KY  (WLJC)
Miami, FL  (WBEC)
Louisville, KY  (WBNA)
Philadelphia, PA  (WMCN)
 
DMAs Losing a station tomorrow
 
Tampa, FL  (WCLF)   (use channel 376 for CTN national feed instead)
West Palm Beach, FL  (WFGC)  (use channel 376 for CTN national feed instead)
San Francisco, CA  (KMTP)
Norfolk, VA  (WSKY)
Albuquerque, NM  (KRPV)
Mobile, AL  (WPAN)
Fairbanks, AK  (KJNP)
Dallas, TX  (KLDT)
El Paso, TX  (KSCE)
Charleston, WV  (WKAS) 
Harrisburg, PA  (WGCB)
Odessa, TX  (KMLM)
