KFVS Sportscaster Gets Story On Air With Help From Cable Access Channel After Flight Is Canceled

When a visit home for the holiday became extended as Southwest Airlines canceled dozens of flights, Joseph “Jess” Todd found himself in a bit of bind. Todd, 26, works as a sports reporter and anchor at KFVS Cape Girardeau, Mo., and was worried after two separate flights he was booked on were canceled and a third flight — with a different airline — wouldn’t get him back in time to work for his scheduled shift on Dec. 27. However, the sportscast was able to go on – with Todd anchoring – thanks to Foxboro (Mass.) Cable Access, which stepped in to provide him with both studio space and expertise to get him on air in Missouri. It was like coming full circle for Todd, who volunteered at the channel as a high school student. (Juri Love photo)
