The Next Move? It Belongs to WRDQ

Our Sponsors

In a move that will better position the station for the future, WRDQ is moving.

Not from Orlando or from sister-station WFTV’s studios. It’s moving on Bright House Networks cable. The station has been airing on channel 21 on the cable lineup since not long after it went on the air in 2001. But starting in mid-March, it’s movin’ on down the dial to channel 10 — a much nicer neighborhood populated by many of the other local stations.

The station has been upgrading its programming, adding South Park, 24, My Wife and Kids and the Tom Joyner Show to staples that include Oprah reruns and the WFTV-produced Action News at 10 This fall, the station will add Monday-Friday reruns of Scrubs, Acording to Jim and That 70s Show.

And there the possibility of affiliation with the new CW Network. The move to a more favorable cable channel position could only help those prospects.
