Comcast to add new Atlantic City TV station to lineup
By Bob Fernandez, Philly.com - October 17, 2012
»articles.philly.com/2012-10-17/n···-channel

From the article:
Kevin O'Kane, a broadcasting veteran and representative of the new owners of the station, Western Pacific Broadcast L.L.C., said the Atlantic City station will initially televise infomercials and children's programming.
Hopefully that's true - the current programming on WACP was previously discussed in this thread: »New Channel Offered: WACP HD
