It's worse than that, not just WWV, WWVH, but also WWVB:

This is an exact quote from page NIST-25 of the proposed FY2019 NIST budget:

<www.osec.doc.gov/bmi/budget/FY19CBJ/NIST_and_NTIS_FY2019_President's_Budget_for_508_comp.pdf>

"NIST will discontinue the dissemination of the U.S. time and frequency 
via the NIST radio stations in Hawaii and Ft. Collins, CO.  These radio 
stations transmit signals that are used to synchronize consumer 
electronic products like wall clocks, clock radios, and wristwatches, 
and may be used in other applications like appliances, cameras, and 
irrigation controllers."
