Some of you may have noticed that you didn’t get much TV coverage of the Reds Clinchmas celebration. Here’s an explanation, courtesy of FOX Sports Ohio:
Going into today’s Reds game on FOX, the Reds magic number for clinching the NL Central was 1. FOX Sports Ohio had every intention of covering post-game celebration live if the Reds won.When it looked as though the Reds were going to win, we promoted that we would have live celebration coverage immediately following the game.Unfortunately just prior to air, the signal was lost out of Cincinnati. Our engineers feverishly tried to restore the transmission but they were unable to recover it.We will air [a] special on Monday at 8pm, featuring the post-game celebration. While this special cannot replace the live coverage lost this evening, we hope Reds fans will be able to enjoy the Reds clinching the Central Division.We sincerely apologize for the disappointment and frustration this caused so many Reds fans.
