    TV deja vu in Puerto Rico

    Remember WBNB? The CBS station in USVI, was shut down after Hurricane Hugo took the station down permanently in 1989.

    This time, the same thing happened in Puerto Rico, but instead of a CBS affiliate (I don't know if there is even a CBS in Puerto Rico at all), it affected the only PBS member station in the island. WMTJ, also known as Sistema TV shut down as a result of Hurricane Maria. Unfortunately, this will leave Puerto Rico without a PBS station at all. That is, unless WIPR wants to make itself a PBS station again after dropping it in 2011.

    In other words, Sistema TV took the same fate as WBNB, 28 years ago.

    Edit: Whoops. There's already a thread in the Puerto Rico TV forum that is just like this, so could you please remove this thread?
