Capitol Broadcasting announces digital WRAL broadcasting on Raleigh's CAT buses
Capitol Broadcasting Chief Executive and President Jim Goodmon and Mayor Charles Meeker unveiled an pioneering program that allows CAT bus users to watch live WRAL broadcasting while on the bus. About 30 people gathered outside the convention center to learn about the new program and take a ride on the bus. CAT bus passengers will be able to view WRAL’s local and syndicated programming throughout the day, as well as city-oriented news, real-time schedules, route-specific updates and other information on digital screens strategically placed inside buses. The monitors include a simulcast of WRAL's programming, as well as a Doppler radar image showing the region's weather, a seven-day weather forecast and space for advertising and city and CAT news, Goodmon said.
