WKTV does provide free over the air programming and will continue to do so, regardless of the talks with Time Warner Cable. That has nothing to do with Time Warner Cable. WKTV, like other program providers, are simply telling cable systems that they should pay a fair price for the channels they sell to their subscribers.
Right now, Time Warner Cable doesn't pay WKTV anything. More people watch WKTV on the Time Warner system, in the Utica Market, than any other channel Time Warner offers.
WKTV has sought to avoid this kind of interuption by granting extensions to Time Warner for almost five years. There is still no agreement.
I am sorry that we were unable to get a video crew to the Buddy Walk on October 3rd. On some days, especially on weekends, we only have one crew (one reporter and one photographer making up that crew). That day, they were in Otsego County and it was just a matter of not having enough people to go around.
I am not sure if you caught our evening shows that day, but the event did get covered and was in the broadcasts.
Our own Caroline Gable was there and took photos that were then shown as a story of the event ran in the evening newscasts that day.
So, while we may not have been able to get a photographer down there, we still did our best to make sure the event got coverage, which was definitely in our shows that evening.
I am not sure what the odds are of you checking this, so I will also drop you an email with this reply, just to be safe. I just want you to know that the effort was certainly made and that it did appear in our shows that night.
