Low-power WOTH-TV (Channel 20) has picked up the Newsmax channel, which will provide live over-the-air coverage of the South Carolina primary results Saturday.

CEO Elliott Block says he’s pre-empting Access Media Group (AMGTV) shows on multiplex Channel 20.5 to air Newsmax programs 5-10 p.m. weekdays.
