KSLA GM Addresses Storm Coverage and ReRun of LSU Game
This from KSLA.com
Thank you for expressing your concerns about the broadcast of the LSU game on KSLA News 12. Please know we only interrupt programming when it is absolutely necessary. During the game Tornado Warnings were issued for a portion of our viewing area…affecting about 50,000 of our viewers. It is our responsibility and obligation to inform those in the path of the storm. Tornados can be deadly. We continue our Tornado Warning coverage until the danger passes.
During the LSU game we did go to a split screen, keeping the game up as well as our storm coverage. We did have a delay in going to the split screen and we have taken measures to correct that for the future.
Tonight, at 8:00pm the LSU-Auburn game will be rebroadcast on the CBS College Sports Network on the following channels:
Comcast Cable 732
SuddenLink Cable 123
Dish Network 152
KSLA News 12 will televise the Alabama at LSU game at 2:30 p.m. on November 6th. The Tigers (7-1, 4-1 SEC) are 12th in AP, Harris Interactive and BCS Standings and 13th in the USA Today rankings.
