Hot Talk for Friday, January 9

Is it OK to delay The Big Switch to digital TV? And should taxpayers bail out the porn industry?

It's 40 days and counting until the switch to digital, but is the country ready?

President- elect Barack Obama is calling on Congress to postpone the DTV transition, which is set to take place Feb. 17.

But, the government has run out of money for the converter box coupons.

That's the device you'll need to get television programming if you have an old, analog TV and you're not hooked up to cable or satellite.

Some Toledoans we talked to think postponing the switch will make it even more confusing.

We have a lot of reaction this morning from a story we ran yesterday on Your Day about the entertainment industry.

Hustler publisher Larry Flynt and Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis will ask Congress for $5 billion.

They say the porn industry is being hurt by the bad economy just like everyone else and that the government should support porn's survival and growth.
