If I watch WLOX over the air, how will the new channel appear on my TV?

What is happening to 24/7 Weather, on WLOX's 13.2 channel?

Recognizing that local weather information is increasingly more available to our viewers via online and on wireless devices, WLOX is delighted to offer CBS network programming  to WLOX viewers on 13.2. During severe weather, local weather updates will broadcast on all WLOX channels (including Bounce TV) when severe weather watches and warnings are issued by the National Weather Service.  We are exploring the possibility of expanded local weather updates on WLOX CBS.
