CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - It’s been a busy year at WOIO and WUAB, and it’s been an exciting one, too.

In boost to local coverage, CW 43 adds Cleveland State basketball to lineup (editorial)

On WOIO, we’ve added new local programming in Sunny Side Up, our 9 a.m. discussion show. On Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire, we’ve also added shows like the 4:30 p.m. Unwired news, Overtime, Taste Buds and other local programming that cord-cutters just can’t get from Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.

That quest for more local programming is what I want to talk about, as this week we announced the addition of Cleveland State Vikings basketball to WUAB-CW 43.

For years in Cleveland, WUAB was the home of the Indians and the Cavaliers – in fact, we still show a few Cavs game each season.

It’s exciting to add Cleveland State to our schedule. The Vikings came within a game of going to the NCAA tournament last season, and second-year coach Dennis Felton is clearly building a program that the entire area can be proud of.

In the end, that’s what matters: we’re here to support the area. bring local stories to you and bring local events to you.

2018 saw us add more local programming to our stations on-air and online, and hopefully, we’ll be able to do even more in 2019.

I hope you’ll make time to catch some Cleveland State basketball--go Vikings!
