KOKH Viewers Miss Part of All-Star Game After Station Knocked Off-Air

Some viewers of Oklahoma City FOX affiliate KOKH missed nearly an hour of last night’s MLB All-Star Game broadcast because of a power outage brought on by a thunderstorm.

The station posted the news to its facebook page, “Right now it appears we are transmitting but we have no power here at the station. We are sorry if this has interrupted your viewing of the All-Star Game. We are told some are seeing it and other are not. We are working on the power issue so if you are missing the game, we apologize.”

According to broadcast monitoring site TVEyes, the station was knocked off the air shortly after 9:09 pm right after the end of the sixth inning. KOKH was without a signal until 10:15 pm when the station re-joined the All-Star Game in the ninth inning after a few stops and starts.

On the newscast following the All-Star Game, KOKH anchor Jaime Ceretta told viewers thousands of Oklahoma Gas & Electric customers were left without power after a storm hit the area. KOKH said at one point 15,000 homes were without power.

TVSpy has contacted the station for more details but hasn’t heard back. We will update when we do.
