Reception alert for WXXI-TV, Classical 91.5 FM, and WRUR 88.5 FM

Jul 19, 2019

This message is for WXXI-TV viewers using an antenna, and listeners of WRUR 88.5 FM and Classical 91.5 FM.

By law certain TV stations in our area are required to change broadcast frequencies. WXXI-TV is one of these stations. Work is scheduled throughout the month of July. Your overnight reception of WXXI-TV, Classical 91.5 FM, and WRUR 88.5 FM may be affected during this period, as all these services are located on the same tower.

Our work is completed but you will need to rescan your TV to receive the new TV frequencies – but don’t worry – we will still appear on your TV as WXXI 21.1 through 21.4.

For more information about the work, how to rescan:

If you are a cable or satellite subscriber this does not affect you, nor will this affect the reception of AM 1370 or FM 107.5.

Here are some additional links about why we are required to change our over-the-air frequency.  You can find more information at:
