OhioMediaWatch: STO sale rumors re-surfacing (again)

If you don’t follow OhioMediaWatch on Twitter, you are missing out on one of the most mysterious and accurate sources in Cleveland media. Tonight the Twitter account seemed to be making a lot of noise with rumor and speculation which could mean the long-rumored sale of Sports Time Ohio might finally be coming. WFNY sources had also indicated as far back as a year ago that a sale was imminent, but alas this is still news as 2013 is within spitting distance.

I would guess at least some of this is unsourced and based in speculation, but this is far from the first time that anyone’s smelled smoke with regard to the Sports Time Ohio media property. And even with the rampant speculation, it isn’t like the chess pieces are a big mystery. Fox Sports Ohio, Time Warner Cable, the Dolan family, etc.

Now, if I just could just find some supporting information for the Indians sale rumors…

In other TV related news, TD and Jacob are scheduled to appear on More Sports and Les Levine on NEON 23 on Time Warner Cable tomorrow night at 6:00 PM. (Shameless plug, I know.)

    So does this affect the Indians in any real way? Or just the programming that’s scheduled around the Indians games?

    Well Larry Dolan owns STO I believe, so any money he makes from this will go into signing quality free agents.

    As long as I don’t have to watch the Tribe on a “Root Sports” channel I will be happy.

    The sad thing is, I have no idea whether that’s sarcasm or not.

    From what I read, it sounded as though they’d move the Indians to Fox. Which would pretty much kill off STO, I’d think.

    I hope that creepy High School Sports Insider host moves over to the new network.
