Dear Friend of TV-44,

If you or someone you know has been having problems locating TV-44 or WOSN on TV, this information is designed to help you. 

WTLW made it’s first of three technical changes Friday, April 12th. This is the day we changed to a new frequency.  Although Channel 44 still appears on your program guide, the signal will actually be transmitting over channel 17. If you rescan your TV today, hopefully you will see WTLW and WOSN on 17.1 and 17.2. 

If you aren’t able to find WTLW and WOSN after rescanning, don’t lose hope. Click here to get the latest information on this three-phase process and how you may be affected. Please note the information on the map as well as the schedule plans for the second and third phase of the process.

I realize this can be all very confusing. Please feel free to contact me with any questions at 419-339-4444 or email at kbowers@wtlw.com.

Thank you for your prayers and financial support.

Warmly,

Kevin Bowers
General Manager

  1. I’ve tried several times to rescan since last Friday but nothing happened – no temporary channel or anything.

    I live about 26 miles from the station or about 20 miles south of Van Wert in northern Mercer county.

    Was wondering when the changeover and full power will be complete?
    Thanks for any info

    • We are unaware of why Directv is unable to get back on. We encourage you to call them and ask them to put TV-44 back on. We have communicated with them and do not understand why there is still a problem.

  2. I was able to regain your signal with my yagi in Sidney after rotating it north. Prior to the change, the signal was strong enough to come in on the back side. (You appeared to have reduced the power.) After the final move to VHF (in June), will your station meet or exceed previous broadcast strength?

  3. In Van Wert we are not getting 44 since your changes, we had strong signal before using antenna TV. Rescanning did not help.
