Baseball strikes out at KTVU-Channel 2

Good news or bad?

I’m a person who would rather go to a Giants or A’s game than to watch it on television, so this only means that my regular TV watching won’t be disrupted as often. But what do you think of the announcement today that KTVU-Channel 2 has ended their baseball deal with the Giants?

On the plus side, the Fox affiliate will be able to broadcast its national and local programming more consistently.

“The business realities have dramatically changed and we were very thoughtful and creative in our efforts to continue as the local TV rights holder,” said Tim McVay, Vice President and General Manager of KTVU-Channel 2 in a statement sent out today. “Any time there is a change that has so much positive history, it is unsettling. We have a tremendous amount of respect and appreciation for the Giants. The Giants organization is first-class from top to bottom and we look forward to carrying the Giants games on Saturday and into the Playoffs and World Series.”
