Super Bowl Sunday Not So Super for NWA

This from a tipster: KFTA and KNWA went off the air at approximately 3:20pm today, Super Bowl Sunday, 2/3. This did not effect Cox Cable, but apparently every other way of getting the broadcast was effected including off air, Direct TV and Dish Network. I personally have Direct TV.
The KNWA signal was lost with approximately 3 minutes to go in the Montreal / New York Rangers game. This was a very close game and the signal was lost at the most critical time in the game. Of course, there was no other way to get it. When I switched to Direct Tv channel 24 for the Super Bowl, there was no signal. I waited a half hour before giving up and driving 10 miles to my son's house(he has Cox). I understand that Direct Tv eventually found a way to get the Super Bowl to their customers, but it was too late for me as I left before they came up with a solution.

As of 11pm tonight, there is still no KNWA signal.

There is no excuse for this. KNWA and FOX24 should have their licenses pulled. Nothing more than a two-bit basement operation.

All those stations in NWA are little league. I KNOW for a fact there are lots of mad folks. You will burn for this Super Bowl debacle!

3:10 have you ever seen Mickey Goodwin in person? If so you know why KNWA shoots her from the waist up: the camera lens isn't wide enough to get her from the waist down! Every time I see her at the station I look at her backside and thighs and think of "the mighty oak trees."

If Mickey Goodwin knocked the station off the air it was because the Super Bowl and the size of her keister overloaded the digital bandwidth!

I will never watch either channel again until they are sold. They are a joke. I can watch NBC out of Tulsa and as for FOX I will do without before I turn to their crap!

KJRH in Tulsa isn't much of a improvement.

I agree with you their. KJRH evening news broadcasts is behind FOX 23 and KOTV and KTUL. Fox 23 has only had local news since 2002. Their started out with 9-10 pm news 7 days a week. Now Fox 23 has morning news from 5 to 9 pm, Noon news from Noon to 1 pm, News from 5-6 pm and 9 to 10 pm. Their only air 9 to 10 pm news on the weekends. That is quite a success story to add that much news only being on the air since 2002

KOKI is a relative newcomer to the field of local newscasts in Tulsa. KOKI began offering local newscasts in 2002, but does significantly well, recently beating KJRH in late news. In 2001, Clear Channel moved the broadcast facilities for KOKI, KMYT and its radio stations from South Yale to a newly converted state-of-the-art facility located at 31st and South Memorial Drive, formerly home to a Burlington Coat Factory store. KOKI broadcasts more hours of local news than any other television station in the Tulsa market with a total of 37 hours of local news per week (seven hours on weekdays and two hours on weekends)
