The parent company of Lexington's Fox affiliate has reached an agreement with local cable provider Insight Communications to continue broadcasting the channel on cable.
Sinclair Broadcast Group struck the three-year deal for WDKY and three more of its stations — WSYX and WTTE in Columbus, Ohio, and WSTR in Cincinnati — according to WDKY General Manager Michael Brickey.
The agreement begins Jan. 1, 2009.
Sinclair made headlines last year after it and cable operator Mediacom Communications fought bitterly over the so-called carriage agreements, in which the two negotiate whether broadcast networks are paid for offering their feed to cable. That fight left a few hundred viewers in Kentucky without access to WDKY.
