The article reports on the preparation of Block Communications-owned UPN affiliate WFTE-TV in Louisville, Kentucky to become an affiliate of MyNetworkTV.

The format borrows heavily from Spanish-language telenovelas, which are popular throughout the world but familiar in this country only to viewers of the Spanish-language networks.
