The Reds are on the radio in Lexington on 1580 AM, which is otherwise a spanish-language radio station. However, the Reds also get pre-empted when the University of Kentucky baseball team is playing at the same time (as was the case this afternoon (Sunday.)) So today a fan like myself, less than 80 miles away from Cincinnati, can't hear the game without purchasing the radio package from MLB because it is difficult to get the signal from 700 during the daytime.
I think this is indicative of one of the biggest mistakes that the Reds have made in recent years: the lack of attention to the regional market. Reds Country used to extend to Indianapolis, Columbus, Huntington, Charleston, Lexington, Louisville, and beyond. Now the organization seems to have given up on this regional appeal. The Cardinals are an example of how to keep attendance and local revenues up by appealing to a regional audience. Keeping the fans tuned-in, so to speak, in these regional areas could help bring attendance up by encouraging more people to come to the ballpark for a game or two more each season. The fact that the Reds are out-of-sight makes them increasingly out-of-mind in these markets.
