It’s always sad to see a good friendship end. Especially when the end comes for no good reason at all.
Regardless, it appears Iron County cable TV viewers will have to move on without WLUK, Channel 11 from Green Bay, a Fox Network affiliate. As 2012, WLUK will go off the air for many cable systems. And the people at the cable companies are just as upset as you are.
WLUK is owned by LIN Media, based in Providence, R.I. LIN operates 32 TV stations in 17 markets. Maybe we better explain what a “TV market” is.
Technically, it’s a DMA—designated market area. The entire U.S. is split up into DMAs. Iron County is part of the Marquette DMA, as is most of the western and central U.P., except Gogebic County (Duluth DMA) and Menominee County (Green Bay DMA). Florence County, Wis., is part of the Marquette DMA, too. There is a Fox Network affiliate in the Marquette DMA—Fox UP.
