WBNS used to be the undisputed technology leader around here. No more. WSYX with their new cell phone technology to be out and about and they had more interesting coverage by far.

The other stations couldn't broadcast from the field for safety reasons but Channel 6 could.

More on the technology they use:

Ridiculously over the top. TEN HOURS straight of coverage for what ended up being a rainstorm. Ganahl said that it was the longest single stretch of weather coverage in his 34 years at Channel 4. That's nothing to be proud of. If anything all three channels just made the public more jaded and less cautious in the future.

Pretty much sounds exactly like what is broadcasted by Glenn Beck on a daily basis.

Channel 4 had s team out in the stirm wirh live broadcast..
What was horseshit was all three columbus stations having weather coverage and claiming the fcc requires them to when the zanesville nbc station just had a small colored map and a text crawl at the bottom. All audio was.of the hockey.game.
I say all three columbus stations should be fined. What a f'n waste of time doing the " take cover" it's raining nonsense all night.

I'm surprised you can pick up WHIZ. I can't get it over here. But then again, I'm right on the edge of their viewing area.

It is just pixilated crap for me. Girlfriends brother lives there and he was just rubbing it in that he coukd see and hear the game without the "take cover the clouds look scary " crap that was on Columbus stations.

Complete overkill!! For entertainment, I checked out Facebook posts on channel 4's page. People were outraged over the game being interrupted. When they did air the game, the screen was split with no audio. From the comments, I gathered that Colleen Marshall referred to the cup as the NFL game, as in football. It was pretty repetitive, rehashing the same old stuff over and over again.

I wonder why they didn't stick the game on 4.2

Here's what my synapse detector say about that:

You treat those who expose your ridiculousness like sh!t, because you then appear to be the very fool you are.

I'll repeat my question to you:

When is Glenn Beck gonna provide the proof that the Boston Bombers dined at the White House?

You believed it then. You were all hepped up about it, writhing orgasmically at the time. What happened? Where's the proof?

They took the hint when OT started and gave us full screen and audio, breaking in only for TV timeouts and intermissions.
That was one hell of a game.

See what I mean?

Ok, douche..when is Barry going to close Gitmo, lower the debt and stop spying on Americans? I seem to recall those promises.

You want to play off-topic games, go right ahead. You're too stupid to see how idiotic you look.

I bet you are one of those penis swallowers that got stomped in the alley behind the gay bar that is in the news crying about it. In your case though it was not by straights bashing your head because you are queer but other queers did it to you because you don't know when to shut your f'n mouth.

WTF does that have to do with last night's TV storm coverage? If you've got a problem with George, PM him. You're proving yourself a real idiot by trying to match wits with him in this open forum because you get DESTROYED every time.

No, Paco...don't change the subject. I said nothing about political promises made by any candidate...promises that typically require the assistance of Congress in order to be achieved.

Your sainted Mr. Beck said he had the goods on the President's tawdry, treasonous relationship with those terrorists. You agreed with him. Where's the proof?

Are you now backing down from your assertion? Was Beck full of crap?

No, but you are one heckuva fool in Akron.
