>FOX Sports Ohio News

>Wow, a lot coming from the Fox Sports Ohio HQ today…one of which we saw on WXIX-TV 19/Newport’s “Sports Wrap” broadcast yesterday evening.

Xavier Bounce: Another Xavier game has been bounced due to a professional basketball game conflicting.

Xavier takes on Fordham this Wednesday at 7 PM, at the same time as the Cleveland Cavaliers will be facing the New Jersey Nets.

Xavier, therefore, gets bounced to channels 99 and 310 in Cincinnati and Dayton on Time Warner, channel 291 on Cincinnati Bell Fioptics, and (according to the presser) channel 6 in Northern Kentucky on Insight Cable. (We’re not sure about that last one, as Insight announced that they were moving all of ICN 6’s programming to channel 2 – see our post around 8:30 AM.)

McCoy Back on the Beat: Yes, we mean Hal McCoy, formerly of the Dayton Daily News.

He’ll be covering the Cincinnati Reds for FSO’s website, and is already in his new role. We think he’s already in Goodyear, Arizona, which of course is the site of Reds Spring Training.

McCoy left the Dayton Daily News after last season, following 37 years covering the Reds for them, but apparently his love of the game won out. We can’t blame him for that… we don’t think we could retire, either in this situation…

Looking for the Next Sports Blogger: FOX Sports Ohio announced in a press release today a new contest, called “Blog Sports Ohio”.

They’re taking entries now on FoxSportsOhio.com through next Wednesday. Contestants have to submit one game recap, one editorial and one feature story, plus complete the online entry form to enter.

For details on all of these stories, you can log on to FSO’s site here.
