  1. ABC 33/40's (WBMA/WCFT/WJSU) news operation is all HD with the expected exception of SD live shots. Here's a vid I captured if you like. This was their first ten in HD. They have been HD for nearly a year.

  2. WIAT in Birmingham will go HD soon. I am not exactly sure when, but I used to work there and I do know that all their Grass Valley Robotic Studio Cameras are HD capable. For the last two to three weeks they have also started doing anchor promos, newscast promos, and promos for "Wake-Up Alabama" all in 1080i HD, and have been airing them throughout the day. Also, their bug on newscasts is in HD. They have not, however, stated outright that their newscasts will be HD soon; I am just assuming, since they have HD cameras and have been doing the promos in 16:9 and in HD, that they have the necessary equipment to do so. They also broadcast ET and Jeopardy in HD.
