Report from the This Week in Doctor Who Archive:

Friday 5th March 1999:
WYIN 56 Gary, Indiana (covers much of the Chicago area) aired Robot on February 27th at 9PM. The response was surprisingly good, and they may air Planet of the Spiders on March 12th at 7PM, a time set aside for Pledge Favorites. WYIN is evaluating picking up the series on a regular basis, possibly as early as April. They even asked on air for viewers to contact them and state what day and time they would like Doctor Who to air, should they pick it up.
