CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

You might not know it, but more people get their news from local broadcasters than big national cable outlets. In fact, the average newscast at a Raycom Media station delivers nearly eight times the audience of a national cable newscast.

At WXIX-TV, FOX 19 Now, our local commitment is all about severe weather warnings, important news and information where you live, and your favorite FOX shows and sports. We're proud to be your neighbor and serve the Cincinnati and Tri-State area.

Unfortunately, there's a danger. DIRECTV is about to drop us and break that critical link to our viewers.

Our parent company, Raycom Media, is working hard to make sure DIRECTV customers continue to have access to FOX 19 NOW without interruption. But there is a chance DIRECTV will not agree to a fair deal and decide to drop this station from their system.

We're committed to keeping you informed every step of the way.

You always have choices: we are free over the air and on fox19now.com, and you can see us on our FREE news and weather apps, on Roku and Amazon Fire. We're also available through other local providers.

To find out more information and how you may be able to help, please go to the website OurLocalCommitment.com.
