Local News In High Def

Channel 9, WUSA, is now broadcast their news in full High Definition television signal, the first local station in the area to do so. Of course, much of their footage is still shot in standard definition, and some of the bugs are still getting stamped out, but the digital television revolution appears to be coming closer to home. What does this mean for viewers? Well, not much. It does mean you get to see their striking new set, but I’ll bet you kiam to kittycats the anchors will be giving their makeup folks an extra bonus this holiday season, as you can see much more detail in HD than you ever could in standard definition.

Of course, it’s still local news…

…But Topper Shutt is top drawer, and don’t you forget it <wink>

No idea why WUSA wasn’t covering the real party over at Chief Ike’s tonight, hosted by our friends at DCist, but we were pleased to see them get some love from the Post.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
