12:05 pm
despite 5 months of negotiations with cox communication s, no deal has been reached regarding what cox should pay for re- transmitting channel 8's programs, including next week's super bowl broadcast. george knapp has the story. (( )) lisa howfield/klas general manager: to make a statement like that is untrue and frankly offensive. lisa howfield, general manager of nevada's first and most honored tv station, klas tv, has heard just about enough trash talk from cox cable. she says she would be remiss if she does not advise channel 8 views who subscribe to cox that they will lose the klas signal as of midnight friday. cox customers will no longer see the most watched station in nevada....with its popular daytime dramas...highest rated newscasts...syn dicated shows like jeopardy and wheel of fortune...and the powerful cbs
12:06 pm
most popular network...all gone for cox customers. howfield advises viewers to make other arrangements, especially football fans who want to watch super bowl 50 next sunday. lisa howfield: ....they won't be able to watch the super bowl on cox. you will be able to watch the super bowl on direct tv, dish, century and if all else fails, you can get a high def antenna and watch it over the air. other local providers are already doing brisk business as cox customers are looking for better deals elsewhere. cox had trouble even before the current dispute. the company once had a near monopoly here but the percentage of local homes which subscribe to cox is dropping. it was down to 48% of the market in november and has since plunged to only 41%. the dispute with klas has opened a lot of simmering complaints from dissatisfied customers. howfield: a lot of locals are starting to drop their subscribership to cox for various reasons. i've spoken to a lot of people
12:07 pm
arsenal of feedback why they are making a switch. the issue is a simple one....what is a fair rate for cox to pay to retransmit klas programming. channel 8 is by far the most popular station, sign on to sign off, which means it is the biggest draw on the cox system...more than espn or tnt or any other stations which are paid large sums by cox. cox customers pay 8 dollars per month for espn, whether they watch it or not. howfield says cox made a terrible business decision to pay that much. local broadcasters like channel 8 provide 35% of the viewership for cable systems, but get only 12% of the revenue. cox earns many times more from channels 8's original content than does channel 8. a public relations statement sent to cox customers is
12:08 pm
the claim that klas is demanding three times what it gets from the current agreement--flat ly untrue, she says. callers to cox have been told their cable bills will jump 20 or 30 dollars if klas wins, which is not only false but ridiculous. howfield is prohibited by law from making public what the retransmission rates would be but says the typical fair amount negotiated by stations all across the country is around 1 dollar per subscriber. cox is paying many times that amount for espn, but only a fraction as much for klas. most telling of all is one fact that cox can't spin---the proposed re- transmission rate has already been deemed fair and reasonable by every other provider system here...all except cox. lisa howfield: every other carrier in this market has recognized the value of a local broadcast and agreed to the terms which are veyr fair...duirect tv, dish, century, they all agree. it's cox who does not.
12:09 pm
value of klas programming. prior to this dispute, the cable company was one of the top advertisers on klas. it pulled 400,000 dollars in ads from channel 8 after it walked out of the negotiations, including 100,000 dollars to be spent on super bowl sunday, a program that now will not be carried on cox at all. george knapp 8 news now. ((patranya bhoolsuwan)) > the company has issued a detailed response to statements made by cox. you can read it on our website. ((patranya bhoolsuwan)) > super bowl fever is taking over the valley. up next we're going to tell you about how you could be celebrating you're own super bowl victory by winning some serious cash.///

north over the weekend. and the change in temps will be pretty drastic. .................. we're already beating our normal afternoon high at the lunch hour... and we still have a few hours to go... so upper 60s is not out of the question today. with some milder temps and overnight clouds, our saturday morning will start out above normal, too. .................... and clouds will make for another pretty sunset later this afternoon... thanks tory healy for sending this photo in for our viewers. ................ right now we have a lot of 60s outside the valley and mild air for now... but don't put away the winter coats too far because you will need them in the very near future. ..................... a nice warm finish to the week

12:13 pm

((patranya bhoolsuwan)) apromising new treatment when it comes to heart health. for people who may be at risk for sudden cardiac arrest, a new device to restart the heart.
12:14 pm
sudden cardiac arrest can come on without warning. it's a leading cause of death for adults over 40. paula francis shows us a new option that can automatically restart a person's heart - without touching it. (( )) < ((paula francis)) two years ago randy fisher was recovering from double knee replacement surgery when his therapy started wiping him out. a doctor's visit uncovered heart trouble. randy fisher "two of my valves were leaking." ((paula francis)) surgeons fixed the valves but there was also a family history to consider. randy's father died of sudden cardiac arrest. randy fisher "he got up at the hotel, got dressed, loaded up the bags, put everything in the car, ate breakfast.five miles down the road, gone." naushad shaik, md "we know that sudden cardiac arrest outside the hospital, the survival rate is very low." ((paula francis))
12:15 pm
an implantable defibrillator can be a life- saving device. naushad shaik, md "a wire would go into the heart, and it would be screwed into the heart, and what it does from that point on it records every heartbeat of yours and if the heart would go dangerously too fast, it would shock you and save you." ((paula francis)) now an alternative to the traditional defibrillator. the s-i-c-d is implanted on a patient's left side, wires lead up to the heart but are not attached to it. naushad shaik, md "this subcutaneous defibrillator has sensors on the tips of its wires, which picks up this heart signal." ((paula francis)) if the heart stops, the device will send a shock to restart it. younger heart patients can benefit the most. without wire attachments, the s-i-c-d is easier to replace. randy fisher "what sold me was really that my father, if he would have had this he might be alive." ((paula francis)) a small device that most patients won't have to think twice about until they really need it. / ------------------- > 4773 ((paula francis)) doctor shaik says without the leads that go
12:16 pm
s-i-c-d device has a smaller chance of malfunctioning than the traditional, implantable defibrillator. for more information, email me, or call 702-792-8888. tell me you want the report, "- restart the heart -" and be sure to give your full name and address. paula francis, 8 news now.// ((patranya bhoolsuwan)) > finding the sweeter side.... up next how one oregon donut shop is getting some attention for their one of a kind creation
