KKTV news going HD?

Just saw a press release saying that KKTV/Channel 11 owner Gray Television is buying high definition cameras and equipment for 21 of its stations, apparently including our own KKTV. No word on when the blessed day should arrive that we'll begin seeing Don, Shannon and Brian in brilliant high definition.

If KK makes the HD jump, it could kick off another round of upgrading in the ever-more-competitive local news field.

FYI, all of the local stations broadcast digitally, and they broadcast HD from their network feeds and syndicated programs, but no one has been shooting local programming in HD.

UPDATE: Ah heck. No, they're not going HD. They're just buying HD-capable cameras so they'll be ready should that glorious day ever arrive. Bum-mah.
