WITN's "Just Ask Mike" and two representatives from the Federal Communications Commission in Washington, D.C. were on hand Wednesday at the Martin County Senior Fest to answer questions about the transition to digital television.

WITN and the FCC set up informational booths with brochures and digital to analog converters hooked to old analog TV sets to explain the change taking place. In addition "Just Ask Mike" and the FCC were on hand to answer questions and demonstrate how digital-to-analog television converters are hooked up and operated.

In addition the FCC representatives assisted seniors is submitting requests for government coupons to assist with the purchase of digital converters.

    I attended this event and the information I got from WITN was extremely helpful. I am so glad they were on hand to answer our questions and help with the coupon request. Thank you to the Martin County Senior Center for having this event every year. Thanks WITN for taking the time to help the Seniors of our county.
