Many people don't realize that they can receive hundreds of popular television programs in their homes for free, without being weighed down by hefty cable or satellite bills.

WNWO's Antenna Giveaway will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at the Lucas County Fairgrounds, 1406 Key St. in Maumee. Hundreds of antennas will be handed out beginning at 6 a.m. until supplies last.

"Eighty percent of the population has no idea that you can get free television over the air," Richard Schneider, President of Antennas Direct told a St. Louis news station at a similar giveaway. "If this helps people save money it's worth it."

The giveaway is first come, first served. There is no cost to participants.
