Traffic Delivery
We will accept files from transfer services like Dropbox, WeTransfer or Hightail.
FTP file delivery is available through our FTP site. Please note that FTP access requires a unique username
and password that must be created by our IT Department. This process can take up to 48 business hours to
complete.

Additional notes

We require you send a test file no less than seven days before your air date to confirm playback and closed captioning. If you do not have the ability to deliver your file with closed captions, we recommend you contact Media Images at 614-410-3000 ext. 105. Media Images can add closed captioning to your program and then deliver it to WCCB in the correct codec and file type.

File-based programming must be delivered no less than five business days before the scheduled air date to allow for conversions if necessary.
