Memphis NBC affiliate WMC may lose some viewers after the power came on at NBC’s newest affiliate in nearby Jackson, Tenn.

“As of about 11:30am today, we have confirmation from Dish Network that WNBJ is LIVE ON THE AIR!” WNBJ posted on its facebook page last Thursday. “Jackson’s NBC39 is a reality – for some of you, that is. DirecTV will follow soon. Over-the-Air could happen by week’s end.”

“There will be no local news at the present,” Michael Steele, WNBJ general sales manager told The Jackson Sun. “And at this point, we don’t know if we will or not.”

Jackson is about 80 miles west of Memphis and is market 177, tucked between Watertown, NY and Harrisonburg, VA.
