Lockport officer plans low-power TV channels

A Lockport police officer who nearly died a decade ago in a shootout is behind a low power TV station that may debut as many as six channels as early as Feb.1.

Steven Ritchie was granted FCC approval to take over the license for WBXZ-TV, Channel 56, in August after purchasing it from a Syracuse owner of several low power stations for $25,000.

Ritchie said the station has been around for about 20 years and has carried home shopping and music channels before.
