I will admit that WTNH does superb coverage of Fairfield County. Unfortunately, it is not "local origination" coverage. This is especially sad since Bridgeport is Connecticut's LARGEST city. Not to mention, WTNH is not available to the thousands of Fairfield County residents who subscribe to satellite cable.

This is a TV board, I wasn't including radio or printed press.
