On June 22, 2012 Shentel is planning on removing WDTV Channel 5 from their cable lineup. If this happens the closest television station will be 120 miles away in Hagerstown, MD or Pittsburgh, PA. I don't consider either of these areas to be local television. WDTV comes out of Clarksburg, WV which is half the distance away and actually covers our local news, sports and information. Within the last year Shentel already took WBOY Channel 12 away from our cable lineup leaving us with only one local station. Losing WDTV would mean we have no local television at all. If this decision goes through we might as well all go to to Dish or DirectTV.
By signing this petition I am stating that I am either a Shentel customer or potential customer that is against losing WDTV Channel 5 from our cable lineup. Thanks.
