Almost definitely WMKE. The new owners are spectrum speculators. And considering they pretty much mostly air infomercials (and supposedly some network called Soul of the South), it's probably inevitable.

WTSJ's new owners seem to be dedicated to TV, and I guess they don't qualify .

I could see WVCY selling off part of their allotment, if not all, but their own stubborness will get in the way.

WBME is pretty superfluous. I could see Weigel parting with it unless they come up with other programming options for the subchannels.

WPXE crams a lot of stuff on their subchannels. They have no extra spectrum to part with.

MPTV is likely a no.

WIWN is a strange one. Lately, it looks like they've been adding a bunch of subchannels and are trying to lease them out.

Too bad WTAS can't take part. They're still analog, and their programming consists of nothing but a loop of TWIT TV video podcasts. What's the point of it?
