FSO/Insight Problem

We first reported on this Friday night when it occurred... but now, we know it was apparently not Fox Sports Ohio's fault that Xavier vs. Kent State didn't air in Northern Kentucky until nearly the entire game had passed.

FSO says in a statement on their Facebook page and also directly to the Tri-State Media Twitter:

"Hi everyone,
Insight Cable experienced a programming error and did not get the game on until 9pm. Insight admits to making the mistake and ensures us that it will not happen again."


We'll cut FSO some slack on this one. We felt we were fooled, and we said as much. We were, admittedly, a bit hot under the collar with both parties, mostly Fox Sports Ohio.

And we really hope it doesn't happen again on the Insight end, so we'll give them the benefit of the doubt for this slip.

We just want to see networks live up to what they say they'll do. Even if "what they say they'll do" is a contradiction of something ELSE they said would happen...

HEY! My name is Joey and I live in Carthage here in the Tri-State Media Area (TSMA). I was wondering if you are hiring for any part-time work? Or, I plan to take some classes in the coming year...do you offer internships or any kind of credit for work in the industry? BIG FAN, keep up the RAD work!

Hey Joey,

First off, we appreciate the kind comment about our work.

Unfortunately, we really can't help you in terms of getting a foot in the door. Your best bet is to contact the local stations (5, 9, 12, 19) and see what they have. We're pretty much an independent effort here.

Best of luck,

By the way, don't let that discourage you from sending in news tips. If you hear something that could be of interest, and we haven't covered it - send it in! That's a way you can help us out!
