...as real life interferes again, with a wrapup of a couple stories making news in our market (one of which is actually a national story affecting every Fox affiliate in the country):
ESPN Gets Deal for BCS: It's just been announced that ESPN has secured a deal to broadcast the Bowl Championship Series beginning in 2011, according to the network in a press release sent out this afternoon. That removes the bowls from free TV, meaning you have to get cable to see the games starting in 2011. However, until then, Fox Sports continues to broadcast the games on WXIX-TV 19 and, in Dayton, on WRGT-TV 45.
KISS 107 Caroling With the TV Stars: WKFS-FM (107.1 Kiss FM) has started another competition between news anchors at the TV stations in Cincinnati.
KISS-FM's morning show duo of Tim and George (at least, they are for now, until the sale of Clear Channel is complete) is hosting the "Caroling with the News Stars" contest, where the winners will have $1000 donated in their name(half to the Dave Thomas Foundation, with the other half going to the charity of the winners' choice). You can vote here until Monday. The field of four will be cut to 2 at 7am Monday, and the winners will be announced the day before Thanksgiving.
