Will FIOS add WUNC TV (PBS) to the local Norfolk/Virginia Beach channel lineup?  We received both WUNC PBS and WHRO PBS via Cox Cable and are disappointed to see that WUNC is not on the FIOS lineup.  WUNC has excellent programming that is different than (and often more interesting) than WHRO.   jbsman

Is WUNC technically part of the Norfolk/Virginia Beach DMA? Because if so, then it's a possibility. However, if it is not in the same DMA, I'm not so sure. You could send them a suggestion for that. I know this because Verizon offers WSBE-36 from Providence in ALL of the Boston area, and it's in a different market. They didn't carry it until very recently. Did Cox offer any other channels from North Carolina?

ssetta - WUNC broadcast probably is technically part of, or shares the Norfolk/Va Bch DMA (defined as

Norfolk - Portsmouth - Newport News, VA - NC DMA 23.1 91.7). 

Both Cox Cable and FIOS carry WSKY which broadcasts from Manteo, NC, well south of here.

To whom would I make a suggestion to carry this station?

You could post about it in the suggested channels thread.
