Hmmmmmm…#2 sure is interesting. Well, I think we have had our fair share of public figures who will “save” our city this week. A local here told me, “New Orleans will not come back because of politicians, but in spite of them. The average person will be the one who helps rebuild.”

Charter will carry next three LIVE games, starting with special encore

NEW ORLEANS (February 8, 2008) – Cox Sports Television, Charter Communications and the Joint Task Force of Orleans and St. Tammany Parishes announced today that a temporary agreement has been reached that will allow Charter to carry the next three New Orleans Hornets games leading up to the NBA All Star Game, which will be held at the New Orleans Arena next week. The agreement will also allow Charter to show an encore of Wednesday night’s thrilling double-overtime win against the Western Conference-leading Phoenix Suns that will air 11:30am Saturday.

“We are pleased that Charter customers will have the opportunity to see the Hornets All-Stars ahead of the NBA All Star game in New Orleans next weekend,” said CST Head Rod Mickler. “We thank Charter for making this three game package of games available to their customers.”

Orleans Parish Council President Arnie Fielkow added, “We are pleased to see Cox and Charter working together to get these next several live Hornets games available to Charter customers throughout Louisiana. We look forward to these games being available with full time carriage of CST very soon.”

“St. Tammany Parish Hornets fans will enjoy watching one of the top NBA teams in the country, ,” said St. Tammany Parish Council Chairman Jerry Binder. “We thank Cox and Charter for working out the details on this temporary 3 game package of games, we look forward to Cox and Charter announcing an agreement for full time carriage of CST ahead of our St. Tammany Parish Council meeting next Thursday night, February 14.”

The Hornets, who won nine straight in January, will be at home to face the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday before going on the road to take on the Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks next Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. All games will be shown on Charter Communications channel 318 on Charter systems throughout St. Tammany Parish, Hammond and Thibodaux. Additional Charter markets of New Roads, Marksville and St. James Parish will watch the games on channel 118.

“We appreciate Cox for allowing us to make available these Hornets games to our customers, we know they will enjoy watching one of the top teams in the NBA,” said Charter Louisiana Vice President of Operations Kip Kraemer.

“We are thrilled that our fans on the Northshore will be able to watch the next three games on TV,” said Hornets President Hugh Weber. “This is a great step towards a long-term solution for our Northshore fan base and we couldn’t be happier that they will now become better exposed to this special Hornets season.”

  1. I bought the Sports Tier on Charter just to watch these Hornets games. They dropped the broadcast with 9 minutes left in the game. Charter HAS to be the world’s WORST cable company in the world. When are the local governments going to kick their sorry butts out?
