    I have some knowledge of the station, past/current sports anchors and the general area. I'm sure the location will throw people off. This company is the ABC and Fox affiliate for Dayton. Miamisburg is a smallish town to the south of Dayton.

    Station's sportscast usually consists of high school, Reds/Bengals, Ohio State, Dayton Flyers, and Wright State coverage. There is also a single-A baseball team (Dragons), and some arena football league and minor league hockey teams pop up in town from time to time. I'd say biggest coverage areas are high school, Flyers and Ohio State. They sent both sports guys to Ohio State's semifinal and championship game last year for the game and week leading up, and have sent them out to cover Dayton's tournament runs the last two years.

    They have two really good sports guys there now. I don't know if one's leaving or if they're adding another position.

    Company's newscast is usually behind the CBS and NBC affiliates. CBS affiliate is far and away the ratings winner. I think this station has occasionally beaten the NBC station in recent years.
