As president of the Juneau Youth Football League (JYFL) I would like to respond to Mr. Hope's letter regarding KATH-TV.
I can only say one word about KATH-TV and its staff - exceptional.
When faced with the question of how to broadcast the state championships the staff of KATH-TV went out of their way to assist us to make this happen. We all agreed that to air the broadcast on GCI Cable channel 6 would be the best of two worlds. Viewers would be able to see the Notre Dame vs. USC in its entirety or switch to channel 6 and watch the Crimson Bears.
KATH-TV is truly a local station in every sense of the word and we are fortunate to have this station in Juneau. The relationship with KATH-TV and the JYFL will continue for many more seasons. Thank you KATH-TV.
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank GCI and Rob Knorr for their assistance in the live broadcast of the state football championship. They went out of their way to assist the JYFL in making this broadcast a reality. Thank you GCI.
Everybody won in this situation and I hope you enjoyed the broadcast. Juneau made history last Saturday. Thank you Juneau.
President, Juneau Youth Football League
