Channel #20 on the box, #63 on the air
WMBC-TV was the place I use to watch Bloomberg News because I liked all the stock talk. Half the day was this then the rest paid programming then religious programming.
Now they have changed formats to mostly ethnic programs, which I also enjoy. Especially the Chinese news which is the least I understand. Trying to learn the language while watching TV is difficult.

Started in 1993.
One of a handful of independent station left in the New York area.
Switched from Bloomberg to Ethnic TV in 2002.
News - This is New York based foreign news, so no direct feed from China, Italy, or Korea. Just New Yorkers of that culture giving the news from the mother/fatherland.
Soaps - Who doesn't love a good Korean drama? Intrigue, high fashion, money, and swords.
Infomercials to fill the down time.
Logo sometimes but I haven't seen it lately. Lots of commercials in the shows native languages but for New York City and local businesses.
