These stations have management that are not familiar with the way things have always been done in this area... They do it "their" way. I will find another channel.

Donnie Cox is doing a good job for News 12 so far I think. He also has a good personality, and not dry like some are.

This is just another example of the need to get rid of these ridiculous "Market Boundary" lines. And WITN sticks to them like glue, as do most because the viewers do not count.

I think Foxeng meant that the ESPN would only be in SD because of the Raycom blackout, but that is not in effect any longer.

I wish WCTI still had the coverage. WITN doesn't seem to think sports is more important than junk NBC programs.
