NOTE: I think ABC did an injustice to all of the Americans who would have wanted to have watched on their tv netwrok this very meaningful concert commemorating the horrific 9/11 event by having their broadcast of it in syndication. My son sent a message of inquiry to the organizer of CALL TO COMPASSION through their website's CONTACT page. Here's the response he received:
Gary -- The answer is not very helpful, but it is straightforward. The local affiliate in DC, WJLA, has a long relationship with the Cathedral. The folks who own WJLA also own six other stations--the stations that are carrying the broadcast. We do, of course, hope that additional stations will decide to carry the telecast, but currently we have the commitment of these seven. The webcast will be the same program, so we hope you will be able to join us online.
As per the response my son received on his inquiry from our local ABC affiliate, which I posted here earlier on the UPDATE..... thread that I started, ABC Networking Corp. have to make contact to all their networking affiliates about special programming like this one to ask them if they want to include said programming in their local listing schedule before the affiliates can/will broadcast it. But for some reason(s) unknown to all of us and anyone, they have chosen to go for the syndication route. HARRIET, I'm with you on your sentiment in this regard. I, too, will not be able forgive ABC for this.
