Once again, Iowa Public Television Screws Us! #$%@&!!

Post by bulletbill57 » Thu Aug 05, 2004 10:12 pm

As soon as I get my next solicitation for money, I'm telling Iowa Public Television and PBS to shove it because they won't broadcast the DCI championships or even state when they WILL show the program after it is over! Damn, if we could just find a good sponsor!

Well, Bill, I'm afraid it's not just Iowa. There is no live broadcast this year. The top 12 highlight broadcast will be available to PBS stations by Labor Day (if I remember Reliable Rondo's promise tonight).

Sorry.

Maybe you should check this out first. The Ankeny, IA, show on August 1st was filmed in it's entirety for later broadcast on Iowa Public Television.
