In Toledo, Raycom’s WTOL Readies HD Debut

Toledo’s WTOL is set to begin broadcasting its newscasts in high definition on Monday.

“We’ve been aiming for this day for about a year,” WTOL news director Andi Roman tells the Toledo Blade.

When it switches to HD next week, WTOL will become the latest Raycom station to make the move.  Earlier this month, Raycom’s KCBD became first station in the Texas South Plains to broadcast the news in HD.

“Raycom has a schedule for its group of stations and we’re excited it’s our turn,” Roman said. “With the transition to digital we know many of our viewers now have HD sets and we’re glad we can provide a much better picture.”

WTOL is the second Toledo station to broadcast in HD. ABC-affiliate WTVG made the switch last summer.
