It's frustrating and we wish we could fix the issue that easily. But unfortunately, most of the time that's outside our control. We recommend checking out the freetvproject.org — a website owned by the E.W. Scripps Company — for tips on how to improve your signal. It might mean repositioning your antenna or keeping the cable away from other power cords. But even then, things like weather and where you're located can wreck your reception.
Just remember you can always watch us 24/7 on your favorite streaming platform or on our website at scrippsnews.com.
We appreciate your continued viewership and feedback, so please keep those calls coming! Let us know how we’re doing — good or bad — anytime on our toll-free Scripps News Viewer Hotline at 1-833-4-SCRIPPS to lend your voice to the conversation.
