Wilmington, N.C., ready for switch to digital TV

The Los Angeles Times reports on how the future of broadcast TV is set to premiere in this quaint seaside city next week. And more than a dozen staffers from the Federal Communications Commission are working hard -- too hard, some say -- to make sure it's a hit here. At noon on Monday, Wilmington's five commercial broadcast stations are scheduled to become the nation's first to permanently switch to all-digital signals, serving as a test of the government-mandated transition that other stations across the country will make in February.
