We heard a funny story this morning.
The “big” storm that hit the East End last night apparently did some damage to the signal emanating from WBKI, the CW station. Around 7:30 last night, viewers were treated to dead air instead of TMZ. A message came on the screen from Insight saying, “One moment please. The channel will be available shortly.”
That’s the standard message provided on all stations when cable service is down. But last night, all the other stations were working.
According to our sources, the message remained on the screen all night. The problem wasn’t discovered by station personnel until they started arriving at work early this morning. We’re not sure when the station came back on, but it was back by the time the morning show came on at 10.
Did anybody else see this? Did anyone notice?
UPDATE: Based on reports from our sources, the outage must have only affected select geographic areas, especially the East End of Louisville. We’re still looking into it.
