Comcast Drops WBKO Channel 247

As many of you have noticed, Comcast has recently dropped WBKO channel 247 from their lineup. This is not an issue that the City has caused, nor can we correct it. According to Kim Sasser-Hayden, Comcast Sr. Manager of Governmental Affairs for the Franklin, KY area, ABC will now only allow one channel to broadcast their programming, and Comcast dropped WBKO channel 247 for Franklin instead of channel 2 out of Nashville. She is checking into the possibility of dropping channel 2 and bringing back WBKO channel 247 for the Franklin, KY area. If you would like to contact her to express your opinion, her contact number is 615-476-6071, and her email address is
