Re: Reds effectively off radio in Louisville :(
I can sympathize with all these people. Several years ago, we had two stations in our area who carried the Reds games. WJLS in Beckely, an AM station and WAXS in Oak Hill an FM station. WJLS took on a religious format and dropped out leaving WAXS and they dropped out ten years ago because they couldn't find advertisers. Night games were OK because we can get WLW at night here, but day games were a wash unless the wind was blowing right and we could pick up WCHS in Charleston.
That's when XM came to the rescue. I had subscribed to the MLB radio feed (and I still do jsut because for $15 you can't beat it and it gives you another option) and already had XM, so it was a godsend. Even if I didn't enjoy satellite radio (which I do), it's a bargain at +/- $12 per month to get all the games. Consider it. and those of us in the southern part of the state that Suddenlink services now get 145 games on TV.
But I find it curious that at a time when the Reds were able to get the Suddenlink system to show the Reds games, they nixed Louisville (or didn't try to find a stonger station). It just seems like they have no idea that their fan base goes far beyond the greater Cincinnati area. That's sad and alarming at the same time.
