Without Cable Contract, WDRB Will Stream Newscasts

With the channel no longer available on Time Warner (formerly Insight) Cable, WDRB will put its local newscasts online.

The streaming will begin at 11:30 am Friday.

Response to the situation has been mixed. Comments on WDRB's website and Facebook page range from mournful—several say “I miss WDRB”—to angry, with commenters blaming either or both sides.

“Both Time Warner and WDRB are to blame for this situation. Once again two large corporations are butting heads over what (if the truth be known) is a trival [sic] amount of money, in corporate terms,” says a comment on WDRB General Manager Bill Lamb's latest editorial. 

Lamb was traveling and not available for comment Friday.
