Ah, yes... "ABC Action News".

WFTS-TV 28, in Tampa, was an indy for years (it stood, originally, for
"Family Television Station" and, oddly, was never changed), and then,
in a big realignment, ended up the local ABC affil. They petitioned,
successfully, to get the Pinellas cable systems to carry them on channel

which left them with a promotional nightmare.

"ABC Action News" was their solution: they don't ever mention channel
28, or channel 11.
