TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is commentary by Joe Hengemuehler, Vice President and General Manager of KOLD News 13. Viewers with responsible opposing views are welcome to respond by clicking HERE.

Did you know more people get their news from local broadcasters than those big national cable outlets? In fact, the average newscast at a Raycom Media station delivers nearly eight times the audience of a national cable newscast.*

At KOLD that’s what our LOCAL commitment is all about, severe weather warnings, important news and information where you live, your favorite CBS shows and sports. We’re proud to be your neighbor and serve the Tucson and southern Arizona community.

Unfortunately, there’s a danger DIRECTV is about to drop us – and break that critical link to our viewers. 

We are currently working hard to make sure DIRECTV customers continue to have access to KOLD without interruption. But there is a chance they will not agree to a fair deal, and decide to drop this station from their system. We're committed to keeping you informed every step of the way.  

And remember you always have choices: we are free over the air, at, via our free news and weather apps, on Roku, and we’re also available through other local providers
