From the desk of Jacob A. Newkirk

Earlier this month, I announced that, because of a change in my work status, I was cutting back on things here at Jake's DTV Blog.

Today, I have decided that I will suspend all JDTVB operations effective Oct. 1, 2013.

The informational pages of the site, which can be accessed from the toolbar above, along with the archive of nearly 5,500 stories dating back to Aug. 2008, will remain available. The pages will be updated on an as-needed basis, as long as I am able to do so.

As part of the suspension of operations, I will also be shutting down JDTVB's Facebook page on Oct. 1, but will remain on Twitter for the foreseeable future.

I thank you for your continuing loyal support. It has been my pleasure and a privilege to serve you.

Thanks for keeping us informed throughout the years. Local TV in Evansville has definitely changed in the last five years. One of my favorite anchors was quoted as saying: "The more things change, the more they stay the same." Best of luck in the future Jake and thanks again for keeping us informed.

You will be missed because without you there is zero coverage of the media in the tri-state area. Thank you for keeping us informed about local TV and radio.
