I remember as a child wondering why radio stations and TV channels took a break for “identification” purposes. After all, didn’t the listener or viewer know what they had tuned into? Well, not always.
Apparently, even in the Internet age, proper identification can still be an issue. As I surfed CNN stories, I looked to the Midwest section which had stories from KETV which broadcasts out of Omaha, Nebraska. All of its web pages that I checked carry a banner for WRTV-6, which broadcasts out of my hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana.
Talk about an Identity Crisis!!!

Response from KETV:
Thanks for writing.
A nationwide glitch has caused all Internet Broadcasting sites to
randomly swap their headers. A team at HQ in Minneapolis is working on
the fix. It should roll out shortly.
