The following is an editorial from FOX6 WBRC-TV General Manager Lou Kirchen, aired on Tuesday, July 30, 2013:
I would like to take a moment to address those of you who watch us through Dish Network. On July 31st, there is a chance our signal will be removed from Dish Network should an agreement between Raycom Media, who owns WBRC, and Dish Network not be reached.
Thank you for allowing us to come into your home with the latest news, weather, sports and local programming. Thank you for your loyalty. I'd like to apologize for the inconvenience you may face should an agreement with Dish Network not be reached. However, there are many ways you can receive Fox6, WBRC's programming. WBRC has agreements with other carriers in our viewing area and is free over the air.
If you would like to call Dish Network and express your concern about possibly losing WBRC from your channel lineup, you may call them at: 1-800-823-4929.
