Nielsen Media NOT the FCC defines TV markets. I changed the article to edit that out. 4.142.132.85 00:53, 25 July 2007 (UTC)Nick

Station ID: What does that small print say?[edit]

I have noticed that the WLOS station ID has what looks like a paragraph of very small print down in either the lower left hand or the lower right hand corner. It doesn't stay on long enough to allow the viewer to read the whole thing, but it looks like it says something about the City of Asheville. What is this? Note: this is NOT the same thing as the list of translators (low-powered repeaters) that appears on certain station IDs. That's fairly straightforward. This is something else, something I've never seen on any other TV station before.

Other meanings of WLOS[edit]

Can anyone find other meanings of WLOS (with no restrictions other than that it is a meaning of WLOS) by doing a Google search?? Georgia guy 17:36, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

______________________________________________________

The "W" of course, is the letter used by broadcast stations east of the Mississippi. The "LOS" stands for "Land of the Sky," a term coined by the Asheville Chamber of Commerse to market Asheville as a tourist destination.

Fair use rationale for Image:Wlosnews13.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Wlosnews13.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

WLOS's 60th Anniversary coming up.[edit]

On September 18, 2014, WLOS will celebrate 60 years on the air. WYFF and WMYA already celebrated 60 years on the air last year and WHNS has already celebrated their 30th this year, only that they didn't announce it. Hopefully unlike WMYA's 60th, which you may not realize that it's the first station in the GSAA metropolitan area, WLOS is the 3rd TV station to sign on for that market. I think they will do their 60th Anniversary, maybe completely different from WYFF's 60th. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 168.213.7.78 (talk) 15:00, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
