There's a rumor going around that Comcast will start broadcasting CBS in HDTV in Portland on October 4th. We shall see, but Cold Case in HDTV may find me watching CBS again.

I hope you are right. Where did you hear the rumor?

The only news I can find says that they might be adding 2-3 more HD channels by year end. The channels mentioned were TNT-HD, ESPN2-HD, and Universal.

Emmis may Sell KOIN:

Emmis had not made an announcement as of 8/22/2005:
