Finding WLNS with your antenna

On Monday, June 11th, WLNS-TV6 moved its broadcast antenna from Okemos to Rives Junction and

began broadcasting on a new frequency.

For technical reasons, we no longer carry the ION Network on 6.3

Because of this move, you may need to re-position your antenna toward Rives Junction (see map below) and rescan your television set to continue receiving WLNS programming.

The rescan process is outlined below:

Using your television remote control, select Menu. (Some remotes may have a home button)

Then select Antenna as your source for programming. (May say AIR/Cable/Satellite)

Then select Auto Program, and allow your TV to search for the channels available over the air.

For those using older boxes, you may need to remove your antenna and run a scan, then reattach the antenna and run a second scan. (This will delete the old memory, and allow your box to rescan for the current channels)

If you live North or East and were receiving our signal with rabbit ears or an indoor antenna, you may not be able to receive our signal any longer. It is best to have an outdoor antenna, as high as possible to receive our broadcast signal over-the-air. For additional information about selecting the right antenna and rescanning your TV set visit

If you are still struggling with the rescan process or have further questions regarding WLNS-TV6, Please send your questions to

Thanks for your patience with this process and thanks for watching WLNS-TV6.
