Whatever Happened To OCN?

This is something that needs to be discussed because Orange County has over three million residents and ever since OCN went off the air, we don't have our own network or independent TV station save for PBS affiliate KOCE. OCN was cool because they only covered local Orange County news and issues. Sure they covered state and national issues also, but their focus was Orange County. A couple of their sports anchors went on to bigger and better gigs. Jimmy Watson is now at Fox Sports West and Dave Webber I think(the red headed guy) went on to ESPN. There was also that blonde bombshell female anchor Brook something. It was a good local news station. Everything I read about the demise of OCN said it was losing money. I would think a local station today should be able to generate the kind of advertising and other revenue to keep a positive cash flow going and make money. Someone step up to the plate and fill this void. I hardly ever watch the LA network news shows anymore.
