WQED did not "bid" on the new frequency.
Well, yeah, sort of, they did.

They threw their hat in the ring and volunteered to got to low-VHF if the price was right in the reverse auction. They didn't know which specific channel they'd end up on, but they intentionally CHOSE to go to low-VHF in return for cash. $9.85 million (plus relocation expenses) to go from high-VHF to low-VHF.

There are a total of 17 stations that participated in the reverse auction in the whole country who moved to low-VHF. WQED has the distinction of being the only of those stations that moved from high-VHF to low-VHF.
