Notice to Insight cable subscribers: WLKY-TV's parent company, Hearst Television, is currently negotiating a renewal of its carriage agreement with Insight.
If negotiations are not successfully concluded before July 1, 2012, you may not be able to view WLKY on Insight if carriage is no longer authorized, unless Insight elects to continue carrying our Signal which it asserts it has the right to do until July 25th.
Hearst believes that Insight does not have that authority without Hearst's consent and is reserving all rights if such unauthorized carriage occurs.
However, you will be able to receive WLKY over the air and from other cable and satellite providers.
