The WVPB Engineering team has completed an upgrade to Coopers Rock TV signal that serves Morgantown and northern West Virginia. The move from an aging, patchworked transmitter increases the signal power from 166,00 to 660,000 watts, giving WVPB the ability to reach more local communities with a stronger signal.

Engineering Director Dave McClanahan talks about this first step in bringing “next gen television” to the Mountain State.
